Any tips on how to keep my plate full with work? I just moved from civil legal services to Biglaw as a staff attorney (9 YOE), and I’m looking for strategies on how to get work from partners. They know I’m new and I have gotten some matters to work on, but I find myself out of billable work by the afternoon (and today, by 10am). I check in with different people each day to ask if there are things I can work on, but what else can I be doing (that isn’t going to annoy the shit out of ppl)? TIA!

I'm currently the corporate controller at a small public company and I'd like to spend my career in PE-backed CFO roles.
I spent some time at MBB and in VC but I don't want to do IB or try to get into PE at this point. How do I get the right experience to be recruited for these roles in the future without IB or PE on my resume?
Any advice is appreciated 🙏

FA1, I would be interested in your experiences related to this. WM, I would argue that since many won’t end up trusting you because of all the salespeople masquerading as “Advisors”, I would suggest that you get involved in your community in non finance related activities. From there you will be able to transition to asset management skills once you build trust with the organization
I offer free meetings to those struggling financially in the community and give th some tips
FA1 - how do you market this? Is it a standing offer or do you choose a Saturday and have these meetings lined up? I like your idea. I assume you are independent
