i think that might just be for London though

We can expense OT meals at home or the office/client site.

That’s amazing. Wish we have that 😭

I’m a third year tax associate with my LLM. I left the IRS for a small boutique M&A firm that had a great reputation in my region. I have been at the firm for 3 weeks and I just found out that 2 of the 4 partners are leaving and taking a bunch of the senior associates with them. The only tax partner is leaving to go in-house and semi retire. I am going to be the only tax associate at the firm. So what’s the play here, look for a way out as fast as possible or ride it out for the time being?
