So...I recently started a new position (within the past year). While I like the practice area, I'm not a huge fan of the type of work I'm doing. I'm a new lawyer. I had planned to stay in this position for years, but I've learned there is very little chance that I will get to do any litigation. Most of the attorneys at my job were previously trial attorneys and they took this position for the slower pace and regular hours. I'm worried about moving on too quickly. Thoughts?

Midlevel Corp NYC big law. Received a mixed bag review during mid-year review. Even positive and negative. My reviews over the years have had peaks and valleys. Worried about consistency. Should I dip or at least start talking to recruiters? Didn’t get an action plan or anything but it was a “developmental message.” Besides obviously internalizing and correcting to get better- thoughts on whether I should start looking?
Advice needed. We have a paralegal who thinks she’s a lawyer. I mean she’s really delusional but she gets most of the work we don’t want to do done so I try not to burst her bubble. (cont.)

Is there any way to get access to the finance bowl? Given how often corporate lawyers interact with finance professionals, it would be helpful to have a way to directly interact with them.
How often are you lied to by opposing counsel? It just happened to me, and it’s probably only the 5th or so time (that I know of) in my 20+ year legal career as a transactional lawyer that I’ve been lied to.
I work in an open space layout. Other clerks talk all day and I cannot concentrate. I’ve asked them to stop and they refuse. How do I escalate this without starting a war ?
