I'm in a client-facing team leadership role, able to fully retire, and just told our managing partner I'd like to do so in 3 months. The firm would like to retain me and has proposed I consider a reduction to a 50% or 60% schedule as a glidepath for a year or 2, doing only what I enjoy. I'm hesitant as I don't know that I have the diligence to truly adhere to a modified schedule, or how to support clients and colleagues if only "working" say, 3 days per week. Has anyone successfully done so?

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?

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.

Just need a quick moment to vent! Two weeks ago, I applied for an associate position at a family law firm.
