I was directed to this blog today and you are to be commended.

As a lawyer who works as a management consultant I agree with some - not all - of your comments. The workaholic firm is not a good look - ask yourself would you want to buy expertise from anyone who is at the end of a 12 hour day. From a physiological perspective people's efficiency degrades exponentially when they work long hours continuously. For examplw would you let a surgeon operate on you when he had already done 12 hours straight - I think not.

The key issues from my own perspective are leverage, assiduous time recording and maintaining high quality communications with colleagues and clients. Manage the stakeholders expectations effectively and everyone is happy, including the bank manager!
