Re: WFH in biglaw post COVID?

For what it's worth, my firm "opened" a full on virtual office and is letting people "move" to that if it's mutually agreeable. Seems like the small number of applicants have gotten it and they are hiring from outside the firm as well. Can't be the only firm doing this Just curious (and I hate the ...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

Others seem to have given you good advice on the lateral decision so I'm going to offer some advice on a different topic which is that you should delete your initial post before someone who knows you or your firm sees it I hadn't thought that much about it, but -___________________- (how many under...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

I think you are feeling like you got this possible offer and there is some change going down at your firm and you’re not sure if you’ll be able to leave with the same opportunity if 6-12 months so you’re getting anxious (totally understandable). But there’s no reason to think you won’t have the opp...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

I mean, you're anticipating problems but nothing bad's happened yet - and if things do start to fall apart, it won't be so precipitous that you won't be able to protect yourself by lateraling later. that's what i mean when i said that you don't have any substantive reasons. everything's just an if ...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

More important is to see whether his book of business minus that client stays, which is a big chunk as well. But you are right that I shouldn't jump the gun and assume the worst. I'd be more worried about this if Rockstar is jumping ship to another firm, but given that he's just going in-house, thi...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

Everything I just read points to not leaving and seeing how things go at your current firm for the next 6 months to a year. Also Rockstar going to his client doesn’t really mean the work is leaving. when work comes up that he can’t do alone/doesn’t have time for he’ll feed it to your firm. I apprec...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

Re: your post, you prob have at least a year-long window to decide if the new structure w/o Rockstar works out. You can always lateral later. Plus, if you aspire to be Rockstar 2.0, a partner who doesn't want to do as much work is a good opportunity for you to get in front of the clients more. It's...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

i don't see any substantive, or direct reasons to move firms . and i'm a little confused bc you said you've got classmates at your firm - just not in your practice group or floor of the building. any reason... not to hang out with them? at lunch or whatever? Thanks, having thought about this more o...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

I read the main concern to be how healthy your current firm's practice area is going to be after Rockstar leaves and what your future will look like in that practice area. Correct You don't really seem to address this as much when you're discussing Firm Y. What is it about Firm Y that makes you thi...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

The answer to most of this is: I'm probably overreacting.

I'll be back with full answer attempts. Thank you both

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

I really appreciate that you took the time to read over this and reply substantively. I'm gonna read it well over before replying. But thank you, I'm feeling pretty lost.
