This is definitely the case. I’ve seen some fairly complex individual and trust work at law firms, but any large corporation is going to have a Big 4 team handle all their tax planning/restructuring

Is it time to make my move? I’m in a mid-size mkt in a firm of 3-5 lawyers. I’ve been practicing at this firm for four years as of October ‘20 and have yet to bill under 1,800 in a year. This year I will apparently receive neither a bonus nor a raise, despite have a banner year for both billing and new business. I also handled roughly 95% of managing our office move (not just coordination, but actual packing), which occurred while I had a newborn at home. (More in comments)

Thanks so much 🥰

Partner says it’s “just a DSUE election, decedent was ill for years, no assets.” Provides no records. Not even an admission the decedent owned a toothbrush. So I looked up the decedent’s home - it’s a joint asset. Partner was “surprised”, and still insists “no other assets”. I found file references to art and antiques.
