I don’t need to note how much a particular client pays per hour.

In my 5th year now and have been running deals more-or-less independently since year 2. I’ve been accepting more and more things post-closing (original signature pages when we have scans, final opinions when drafts have been signed off on, final amendments to org docs when forms have been approved, etc.). Am I getting sloppy or just able to exercise reasonable judgment at this point?

How do you all handle non-billable work on top of meeting your billable targets (assuming no minimum requirement and bonus threshold not an issue)? I.e. If you have two hours of non-billable work to do (but it’s work that can be added to your time sheet like business development) do you still bill ~8 hours of billable work on top of that for a total of 10hrs on your sheet?
