Law Exit Opportunities

Looking to move firms or move out? Or hire? Come here for advice, referrals, and more

I’m a 2017 associate in NYC biglaw. I logged approx. 2300 billable hours in 2019. Is that light, normal or heavy in the biglaw market for RE associates at my level? Thanks in advance for thoughts.

Any experience in transitioning from a laid back boutique to a more traditional V100? Mid-level associate and the increase in billables would be 350 more. Am I giving up too good of a thing?
