Like Nancy Reagan. Just say no.

I’m going to assume that since you said delegate that they aren’t asking you to help them out but trying to Debo you. If you are fully staffed I would tell them such and then report to your project leadership if they persist. If you aren’t fully staffed then you have to be much more conscious of the politics surrounding everything. Maybe it is in your best interest to do the work or maybe it is in your best interest to tell them to get bent. That grey area FB won’t be able to help you with.

Exciting news but also need some guidance-- after many many months of looking I received an offer from a small firm. Seems like a great opportunity ex big law folks, in my practice area, no billable requirement, culture embraces remote work, appearance of forward thinking firm. At last firm I was making around 140k (underpaid for market), offer letter is 85k and potential bump to 100kish after a certaib period. Do I bother trying to negotiateor just accept and leave money alone?

I know the work is entirely different but just curious on the hours. Outside of busy season I probably average 45-50 hrs (closer to 70 when filing a 10k out the door) and it’s not bad but just curious if MBB is more or less.
