Have an offer in hand for an AmLaw100 lockstep. Corporate / M&A mid level associate. Didn’t use a recruiter (attorney referral from inside firm). Mostly satisfied with the offer. Procedurally how should I go about negotiating things like signing bonus, full bonus vs pro rated bonus / Covid bonus eligibility? Obviously this would normally be done recruiter to recruiter. Do I contact the internal recruiter or one of the head partners I interviewed with? Email vs call?

Just interviewed with a firm and it seems great. I was told that although associates are given an annual billing requirement, the firm focuses more on your “receipts” rather than hours billed. I understood that to mean that the firm is more focused on whether or not your client pays your invoice. Has anyone worked for a firm like this?

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

This may be a stupid question, but when using an offer as leverage for a pay raise at your current job do you need to have the offer in hand and have gone through all the background checks, etc.? As opposed to just a verbal offer or email? I guess the answer is yes because you should be prepared to leave if they say no.

I wasn’t sure what to so, but went ahead and resolved it slightly differently than I had done before. I was asked follow-up questions and responded to them satisfactorily. But after the interview was over I started wondering if that was a test on itself? Maybe they expected me to be upfront about it? Am I overthinking this or do some companies do that?

I practice in a relatively specialized field. I am contemplating moving from a large firm with a smaller practice group to a midsize firm with a substantially larger practice group. Not quite a boutique, but close. Partnership prospects are good at the large firm and they seem good at the new firm as well. Large firm pays more. The kicker, to me, is that culture at the smaller firm seems better. The group seems to be more respected w/in the firm. More people know what you do. Any advice?
