Hey everyone! I’m planning to do a long rest weekend over Memorial Day - I’ve been dealing with burn out and a breakup so I’m looking forward to having a few days where I can rest and recover.

In house friends - does your company make you do all M&A deals in house, even on huge deals that should warrant outside counsel? Forcing me to work through the holiday weekend - I left law firm life for reasons like this. What do you think about such a situation?
