Enough happiness, time for some reality from our friends at Peer Monitor (data based on billable information):

Sucks to be in the AmLaw 200 right now. But WTH with productivity v. lawyer growth. Sorry, 1Ls, there are too many lawyers out there.

And who is engaged?

And the hours …

And the expenses

Yeah, this does not make sense. There’s a lot of bloat a few pix up (AH, HEM, unproductive attorneys) … but, hey, let’s tie the hands of people who are out there trying to bring in new business.

(((sigh))) not a lot of information coming out in how to find the opportunities, but I do like the Peer Monitor information.
