    Is Mark Boardman "coveting" his neighbour's clients? For shame. We all moan and whine about associate work-life balance, having a life outside of the job, but as soon as any push to at least institutionalise a policy comes around, the knives come out.

    In reality, I doubt that associates who are any good will really ignore their BB, but putting the policy in place at least allows for the idea of not being a slave to it to be "formally" acceptable, and may reward active client/transaction management rather than merely expect it 24/7.

    Some of these things are about setting a minimum expectation that can be exceeded by those who are minded to do so.
