Billing can be a nightmare, especially if you get unlucky on your clients/matters. I think my record was 17 different time entries for one day, including half an hour for "billing and time keeping"
this reminds me of something i was wondering: i summered at big lol and then at a smaller/midsize firm. at biglol, we had to account for essentially every moment of the day, including non-billable time, which i found quite oppressive (well to be fair, it's not so much every moment (start and end times), as every activity (duration)).
at the smaller firm however, time entries ere strictly billable. no one one cared about anything else. heck, the system didn't accept anything else. thus no time entry for say, lunch w partners, training, article writing, etc. and certainly not for "billing and time keeping".
do all large firms operate with the former system?
