Litigation associate here working on an M&A deal (against my will): there are a few months between signing and closing on this deal. I have no experience in this practice area, but is this normal? What usually happens between signing and closing if there is a long time in between? I’m trying to figure out if this will slow down and I will get a break, or it’s crazy the entire time.

It’s a client of a partner in my group and I was essentially put on it even though I said I was at capacity. M&A group needed bodies. Would never have happened if not for this one partner.

That’s common especially if there’s regulatory approvals (like HSR) required or if there are other items to take care of.

If you’re not antitrust or one of the other regulatory practices, feel free to find something else to do in the meantime

Buy side or sell side? A few months is normal.

Thanks - delay is definitely due to regulatory stuff here, so things should hopefully slow down for me at least 😭

Lol to the partner saying “no pressure on coming back to the office” but mentions it in every single team meeting, talks about how great it is for the client to see us there and even offers free lunch and drinks 😂 I mean thank you but do you really want to risk your whole team being out sick?

I’m quarantined w my aunt, uncle, brother and cousin at the moment. I show that I’m really happy all day but every night before I go to sleep I cry like a baby. Sometimes even during the middle of the day I take bathroom breaks to shed some tears. I don’t know who I’ve become and why this is happening - I lost my job and am dating a boy who doesn’t seem to care about me. Some days are better than others and that keeps me going.
