Do any AmLaw 200 firms offer fee splitting for associates? As a senior associate, I originate more than my salary and I know that many others with the same title in my firm originate little/nothing. Yet we are all paid about the same base and our bonuses are underwhelming. Sounds like a rant but am just curious.

I'm a junior associate at a national insurance defense firm that was just offered an interview at an AmLaw 200 regional firm in their commercial litigation practice group. 1900 billable requirement and an opportunity to touch different areas of law at a full service firm, so I am jumping at the opportunity. I'm pretty nervous though because I have practically zero commercial litigation experience. Any advice? Interviewing with a full panel of partners.

Currently at a big 4 with 5 years of experience. No early promotion due to 2 transfers to different groups. Another big4 reached out about manager role and I’ve had 2 interviews. Spoke to an old coworker and they said this wasn’t common to get a promotion through big4 by moving. True? Worth to continue interviewing ?

Have any of you taken "low bono" clients while working at a firm? I want to take on a low bono client or two but not sure who would get the money. This is a contract opportunity through a non profit so I'm assuming a 1099 will be issued. The per hour rate is significantly less than my billable rate. I would (obviously) like the money but my real objective is just getting experience/networking since I recently moved to a new state and don't have clients of my own.
