How has your work been affected by COVID-19? I’m a regulatory and transactional attorney at an AmLaw 100 firm. Everyone has been telling me that health care will be fine (continued in comments)

Same here, March was fine billable wise because of the first half, but now half my time is spent writing legal alerts. I’m still getting billable work, but it’s dwindling and making April look a little bleak.

Thanks for sharing! I’m in the same boat with my hours for March and April. I’m nervous to see how April will shake out.

(Cont’d) but our transactional work has noticeably slowed down and our regulatory clients are still hesitant to rack up a legal bill so they haven’t been sending much work. Any thoughts or comments on how you see the nature of health care work will change would be much appreciated.

Same here. Things have slowed down quite a bit. But everyone here still seems optimistic things will turn around.

I have a lot of experience and meet all of the qualifications and then some so I asked for the mid-high range. Hopefully it wasn’t too high! Just needed to vent…
