The best resource I have found is going on practical law and reviewing various agreements with the drafting notes. After each provision practical law explains why it’s important and how to tailor it to be more buyer or seller friendly.

Was told by a senior associate at midnight not go to sleep until a document came in (he specifically told me not to sleep and wake up every hour to check as I had suggested). I pulled an all nighter waiting for it and it came in next day at 8 am which the senior forwarded to client. How much time should I bill? I was sitting in front of my laptop watching Netflix on my phone and occasionally slapping myself to stay awake.

Why I love being in industry: I presented a deck and I misspelled "EBITDA" in the exec summary while presenting to the exec team. No one noticed. No one called me out. No one gave me a nasty glance. No one sent a "pls call my mobile" text after. No email with some stuff about "not meeting expectations" or "how could you let this happen in your role". After the wave of panic, I remembered that I'm in industry now. I make more money, work less hours, work with great people, I'm happy.

My current project in Deloitte USI demands atleast 14 hours work time daily. Being an associate, am expected to do work equivalent to Senior cons. Have clearly stated for not being able to work late after 9pm, but the Manager has got just one thing to say, that we need to work with onsite peeps so extending daily is necessary. My and physical mental health is on a toil due to the overwhelming working hours. Been 6months in deloitte. Should I resign? Or tryna switch project ?
