I work in insurance defense and we are getting slammed as far as workload and have been for some time. It’s nice because I haven’t had to beg for billable work and always hit my goals. My question is whether this has been the norm at other insurance defense firms. My other question is how other states are dealing with COVID restrictions on jury trials. Has anyone tried anything during the pandemic?
The most recent (4.30.21) CoVid 19 production practices on the AICP site do not require testing and do not require any stipends. Are the bidding requirement changed here? What are people seeing in the last 1-2 months? These fees should decrease significantly now, yes?

How bad will the biglaw layoffs be once the market inevitably crashes due to COVID-19? Worse than 2009?
I know we are living in the COVID Era and things may be different but as a self-taught designer that’s been employed for the last 8 years here in the city, I’d like to be able to make myself attractive to the advertising world. I usually operate on the fringes of the design community and I don’t know all the cool kids (outside of interning at 3st). What can I do besides have a great portfolio?
Trying to understand what everyone is doing wrt childcare these days? We haven’t sent our 4yo to daycare since the pandemic started since we have no family/friends here even to help if we contracted Covid. Been playing extra extra safe. Bay Area Covid stats don’t inspire confidence either. What are you all doing?
Question to fellow M&A fishes. I do FDD at EY and was worried deal flow was going to be slow. Haven’t really been on the bench ever since COVID hit though, which seems surprising. Anyone else there feeling like it business is strong?
Democrats getting s**t DONE less than 3 weeks into office 🎉 May this relief put us on a stronger path to recovery from what, I’m sure, has been a nightmare year for so many. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/feb/05/kamala-harris-casting-vote-us-senate-covid-relief-coronavirus-minimum-wage
Friend delayed her wedding due to coronavirus concerns. Was going to be in September of this year and now it’s going to be September 2021. She wants the bridal party to ‘stay excited’ though and host bimonthly events (virtually for now) in the meantime starting now and leading up to it. I feel bad but I’m already incredibly exhausted with work post-round 2 of layoffs and dealing with my family. I almost want to bow out of being a bridesmaid...
Curious if anyone has experienced companies that require COVID Vaccine if hired? I was told today that it is required for a company, and this isn't a healthcare organization. I have no issues with the vaccine, however I thought about it as a Talent Acquisition Manager. I'm not sure I'm comfortable relaying to candidates that it is a requirement since it's a personal choice. Any feedback? Just curious what is happening in the market.
What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too

I’m a 2016 grad making $120k in a small to mid-size regional firm. I’m based in Nashville. My firm’s management is trying to survey other small to mid-size regional firms to get a feel for where the comp is now, especially in light of the big law increases that are making headlines, and to see just how far below market we may have fallen. Any additional data points from smaller regional firms (especially if you have a presence in Nashville or across the SE) would be appreciated! TIA
