Is anyone working remotely in the EU for a U.S. law firm handling litigation related work (NY/local bar admission required)? Interested in how the firm pays you or other logistics.

Yep. Fully aware. That’s why I asked if anyone might be in the situation. Seeing how they did/do it.

Renegotiation time for my contract with the firm. They don’t like spending money, but will bend over backwards on administrative stuff if it’s possible/legal.

Between child care, rent, and healthcare. $1 in US is worth about $1.30 to me in the EU at normal exchange rates (it’s about $1.45 right now but that’s not going to last forever). It’s a lot easier to get that 30% increase than a bump in cash comp at this firm.

I’ve heard of this happening in IP litigation.

A friend sends me 20-40 messages while I'm at work or asleep. When I get a chance, I respond with "hey I'm just in the middle of some work stuff I'll get back to you when I finish 💕" or something along those lines, or I respond to most and say I'll look at the others when I have a min.

She then deletes all of the messages because I didn't get back to her right away as I was busy / asleep / exercising / eating / with my family.

This happens almost daily. Do I say something to her? AITA?

Just realize I screwed up some research and came to the wrong result for a client, which the partner provided to the client as well.
