I’m meeting someone in person that I’ve been speaking for a month in a few days. He got me a gift, am I suppose to get him something too?

The real smart move is ask him. You could play it off like you're nervous and you don't know what to get him. You have no idea what the $ is and what the occasion is? Chances our it's something he saw that reminded him of you or it's something you've mentioned you really like.

Ya he saw something that reminded him of me. The occasion just is that we are meeting for the first time. What he got me is expensive since he got it shipped from abroad. He’s written me a letter as well... I’m not really sure what I can get him even if I think about getting him something. I did ask him and he said he doesn’t want anything

I think it's fine not to get him anything this time. Might look like the only reason you got it is because he got you a gift. If you hit it off and meet again, get him something then. It could even be something along the lines of taking him to a nice dessert place or a cocktail bar, whatever your preferences are.

What is the hierarchy at your company and the salary differential for each position? We have staff attorney, associate general counsel, assistant general counsel, deputy general counsel, and then general counsel. Thx. I would guess that the ranges are about $25k differential per position.

Which firms have had layoffs within the last 6 months? Was it contained to a particular practice, "sub-group" or other characteristic? It seems like a lot of firms have been making cuts....

Tax professionals: Can you help me understand this part of the article? To me it seems that Trump overpaid his tax liability based on estimated tax payments required so when it came to filing, the only amount left owed was $750.
