I am in public accounting and I got pulled into the Audit department to help out. I didn't have much of an option because there was no project available and I needed to get billable hours (I am under Acct and Fince Consulting). The problem now is I've completed my work and I am still not billing as I had hoped. I was informed there's plenty of work, but not seeing it. Am I missing something here? I haven't been informed I am not doing my job properly.

Question about contingency fees (I work in an insurance defense firm and therefore have no idea)- client signs contingency agreement with law firm. Law firm eventually sees case is not going to be a winner in court, and therefore withdraws. Client, on his own, negotiates a settlement. Is prior law firm that withdrew beforehand entitled to fees from the settlement? It’s a first-party property damage case. Thanks in advance!

Left Booz last year to work for one of the beltway bandits. Culturally this is not a fit and I'm looking to quit. While I don't plan to go back to Booz or a Big 4, I'm considering a non technical role with a tech company in the DC or Reston area, preferably in partnership, BD or sales. How bad does a gap on my resume appear to recruiters and hiring managers? Any advice is appreciated.
