Anyone in Private Client Services/T&E that can speak to how billable requirements are approached in BL for that practice area? Often hear billables are harder to come by than in, say, M&A or Lit. Is there a greater understanding for failure to hit hours in this area? Potentially making the move from boutique firm where minimum has been 1700 (but 165 hour months are common). Offers have been from Am Law 50-100s requiring 1900 and 1950. Don’t wanna accept just to get recession fired. Thanks.

Been working as a contractor lately and just got off a call where my client ended our relationship. He is in the financial services industry and has a very toxic and aggressive communication style. He technically owes me money but I decided not to ask for it because I was honestly intimidated by his ability to go super negative very quick. Feeling beaten down and wondering if I even belong in the corporate world. Hope and words of encouragement would be most welcome right now. 😢
