I have Amex points on corp card and need to buy a long haul flight. It looks like it’s best to use them by booking travel through Amex but I’m confused about the bit that says I’ll get a statement credit when I pay with points. Does that mean I’ll then have to spend more on the card to get rid of the credit?

Correct way to record time? I travel for my engagements but it seems if you’re traveling, it counts against your total billable time. I just think that’s weird. Am I doing this right?

News happens. 45 point run up in ES in one hour. We ticked into new highs. But, as long as we are within 10 points of the close, we will fill the gap, meaning some pressure on the open. Obviously, got blown out of my sells, but have reestablished up here at a 93 average. Short from 3093

Anybody tempted by (rumored) six-figure signing bonuses, special bonuses, and full-time remote work being offered by BigLaw firms? Or is everybody “been there, done that” and never going back to BigLaw? For M&A/corporate transactions, this seems like the best time to re-enter BigLaw (midlevel / senior associate / counsel / Junior partner). The grass is “greener” (with cash), but surely still growing on toxic chemicals.
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card.
