Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

with 7 comments


Comes the end of the day, most young lawyers face this question.

And many decide to stay at the office even if they have nothing to do, just to look busy before partners.

  1. The flowchart should include a box re “Can you get a free dinner and cab expense reimburse if you stay another hour?”

  2. Maybe I shouldn´t give myself this bad publicity, but anyway…

    I recently told one of my partners that some firms pay for taxis and dinners if you stay at the office after 8 pm. We were talking about how this incentive is not necessary at a Spanish firm (because we’re used to having dinner at home at 10 and people generally stay in the office until quite late no matter what). His response was that he would make sure we get a “churros making machine” for the office, so that one day I may arrive there a bit close to breakfast time 😉 (point taken).

  5. Hi Rob, and my apologies for this late reply. I’m not aware of the details on how Nicolas received the graph. I understand that someone sent him the graph, and that Nicolas thought it was an original work from that person. If you are the author of this graph, then the credit is of course yours (and congrats for the fun graph).

  6. Rob, yesterday, I inserted a link to your website. Thanks again for the fun graph, and apologies, I got it through a friend. Did not know it was yours.
