Partners/shareholders - how many hours are you expected to bill on work vs client dev and firm/associate management? My firm keeps saying that "there's no such thing as a relationship partner" and everyone top-to-bottom is expected to log 2000 hours/year on real billable work. Marketing etc is done on top of that. Is that normal?! If so, I'm going to have to totally rethink my life goals.

My firm has an 1800 billables requirement for NESHs and a 1600 billable requirement for equities. People go over that, people go under. People with 5-10 million dollar books typically bill far less than a thousand hours. But some do it all.

Pro bono and DEI hours count, not sure if I remember how much. Nothing else though.

Equity shareholder, no formal billable but I’m still billing over 2000/year
