What is a business budget?


Do you mean to take clients out?

Business development budget to take ppl out not necessarily clients.

Post this on the Latham bowl if you want more indo as I don’t wanna give out confi info but the basic rule is approx £120 per person for dinner before LDC approval is required. Not sure what you mean by not necessarily clients - unless you mean potential clients, in which this applies.

More like what’s the amount of hours y’all have billed.

I had to eat a lot of class years when joining big law. I didn’t go T14, didn’t get a summer job in big law, had to work my way up and finally got here. I’m at a great firm doing the exact work I like doing. Now, all around me, colleagues who graduated with me or after me are getting promoted and I’m still a long ways away. They all deserve it. But I can’t help but feel jealous and angry about the uncertainty ahead of whether I’ll make it there and how long it will take. Can anyone relate?


My last day at the firm is this week. I’m lateraling to another firm. Is there anything you wish you had done during your last few days at the firm before lateraling?

Need some perspective -
Paralegals complain that I’m not assigning them work with enough notice. They’re copied when the work comes in and it falls within their typical responsibilities. Shouldn’t it be their job to anticipate what will be needed instead of relying on direction from me?

What’s the point. Boomer partners had it so easy 25 years ago. They have no ideas of the stresses placed on those beneath them due to technology and exacerbated by the pandemic. Plugged into work 90% of the time. The Work product of a junior now is probably 3-4x that of a current partner as a junior back in the day. Just a rant from a place of despair about my future.
