Is it possible for a practice to be lost by sheer turnover? I mean you can only have so many owners to so many staff. I think there’s a sinking ship mentality that’s growing a lot faster than it can be realized and reacted to by the firm. People see work loads growing exponentially as headcount is falling. It’s definitely in a feedback loop. There’s folks running for that reason and kind of causing a stampede that I’m close to personally engaging in.
