    I beg your pardon...and this is something to be proud of??

    I agree with the sentiment above. Isn't this direct evidence of some of the industry depression etc issues that the NZLS through Lawtalk is striving to educate lawyers on? Glamourising working in this fashion is irresponsible. Sure, celebrate good work but the way this is pitched suggests working 24/7 is to be celebrated.

    ...and it also says nothing about how efficient the process was . Lawyers can't expect clients to accept time-based billing in the same way as they have in the past .

    Yes, I agree with your comments. It seems something of a masculine approach which I try to distance myself from- another occupational health hazard
