Interviewed with a firm three weeks ago. Reached out to see where they were in the hiring process and the managing partner just emailed me back asking to set up a ten minute phone call tomorrow. What could this be about? Offer? Thanks but no thanks??

I recently gave my small firm notice that I am leaving and moving to another state. I mentioned that I am considering starting my own practice in the new area, and the managing partner suggested that I transition to an “of counsel” position at a 1099 hourly rate (remote) while I got started. I thought the rate was a bit low, but I’m not sure what to compare it to. Anybody have any experience with these arrangements? Any advice on how to structure? Or if it’s worth it? Any input is appreciated.

Do other firms have policy where you can’t solicit your coworkers to leave? Recently left BKD and got an exiting email from managing partner says: it has been a while since you signed the contract where it states you can’t solicit colleagues to leave. Just want to remind you of that. Also my coworker got reminded in person when she was having exit talk with the group partner. Do you guys have similar policies?

Strengthening Relationship with Managing Partner After Rocky Start I switched firms in mid Dec. and took up new area of practice (insurance defense to coverage). I was recruited for the position and sold on the training I would get. Instead, I found a stressed out and unsupportive partner who did not have time to train me or the tact to let me save face when I asked dumb questions. I’m now taking charge of my own development, but I still have a frosty relationship with the partner. Advice?

I was let go from my position yesterday. The managing partner, who did the letting go, said it as because of poor development and bad work product. Yet, only in December, I got a solid raise and excellent bonus for my size firm. Between then, the partner had made unsupported claims of bad work (e.g., claimed I used the wrong code in a letter bc it wasn’t the one he told me to use but the one the documents supported). Never dreamed of being “fired.” All partners are holding the party line and ...

Job Not Providing Structured Training which is what made the position attractive during recruitment. I’m learning everything by myself and moving at a glacial pace. I’m upset, demoralized, and isolated. My managing partner is overcommitted and seems to have forgotten that I was promised 1-1 mentorship. I don’t want to go back to my old firm, but I am super salty. I asked a question my first day and was met with, well that’s a disconcerting question (it was about client docs) Any encouragement?

Does anyone feel like they can’t ask the firm to pay for e- seminars/training in this cost-cutting situation? I wanna do so, it’s a relevant course, not too expensive and so far my firm seems to be doing OK (hiring and pay freezes but no redundancies) but I just feel the managing partner will be low key irritated (she is fairly calculative imo and rightly so) and I really don’t want to get in her bad books. Am I just overthinking?

Just need a quick moment to vent! Two weeks ago, I applied for an associate position at a family law firm. I received a response almost immediately from the managing partner, who asked if I was available for a preliminary Zoom interview the very next day. The Zoom interview went exceedingly well, and I was asked to come in for an in-person interview the following afternoon. At the end of the second interview, the managing partner briefly explained the compensation... (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)
