Robins Kaplan Discussions
I have a team member who has a tendency to miss deadlines, is reluctant to take on tasks which they don't like or refuses to participate in company-wide mandates w/o me & the other team members validating the why's. Prior to joining my team, this behavior was alluded to but never told to me directly. Now I'm seeing it. I've discussed missed deadlines which are acknowledged but w/o permanent resolution. I'm going to give her a verbal warning in the upcoming review. Other suggestions?
Hello HR - currently don’t have an internship program in place. Can we still hire a paid intern to assist one of the departments as long as we are compliant with federal/state laws and pay? Thanks in advance!
I worked/billed a ton last week and Monday and Tuesday this week, and then today I didn’t have any meetings or anything and just hit a brick wall - I slept until 10am and just dealt with accumulating non-billable stuff for almost all of the day. Now I feel terrible about it. How do you keep going? I feel awful about today and have such dread about all that I have to do tomorrow 😭 I’m in a new practice area and am super grateful for the work, but the learning curve is hard and I’m struggling!
Thinking of leaving private practice for a state government job. Anyone who has done this, can you weigh in on your experience? Any regrets?
Shout out to the Kirkland associate who just asked my partner to turn comments by Friday. Solid flex.
I connected with a partner at a commercial real estate company about my career pivot & this company having a potential position for me. I’ll be meeting this partner in person for the first time in a few days. I wana make a good impression yet I’m nervous since I just got rejected after a formal interview. What are some good questions I should ask when meeting people in high positions like this? I wana take advantage of this connection to get the job I’m dreaming of

Currently a transactional junior associate at a v10 from a non brand name law school. Thinking of applying to a top 1 year MBA (maybe Kellogg or NYU) to explore non law career angles. Would ideally like to work at a startup maybe as chief of staff/legal counsel blend? Has anyone done something similar and would the MBA provide any value add in terms of education, network, or not being pigeonholed as a lawyer?

Does anyone here practice cannabis law? How candid are you when filing federal documents (i.e. EIN for the entity)? Is there an issue with a company disclosing that it’s a cannabis business or should the activities of the business be described in broader terms?

Wondering if anyone has suggestions for welcoming a new Director to our company.
My boss suggested bright colored balloons, but I feel like that's too childish. What are some professional, classy ways to say, "welcome to the team, we're glad you're here"?

My mentee (class of 2021) graduated from a good school with decent grades but somehow ended up in a nonexistent CA market doing insurance coverage. I think he just panicked and took the first job offered. I’m trying to help him make a transition out to a primary market (I’m thinking SF/SV) and actually make money. If anyone has an leads or would be willing to meet with him please reach out.

On what percentage of your deals do you see an anti-sandbagging provision, and of the deals that have them, on what percentage is the buyer imputed with constructive knowledge of diligence materials. Please specify practice area as I’m curious about how each practice area differs on this point.
