Is negotiating with a claims adjuster really that bad? I have a lot of friends who do plaintiff’s personal injury work, and they always complain about what a nightmare or how unreasonable adjusters are 😂 I’m in insurance defense and I get a lot of policy limits demands for silly things, so I kinda get it.

Have you terminated a manager for poor management skills? There is no one issue but a pattern of subpar management and negative feedback both by survey and in person by the person’s direct reports. We have someone who is really trying but after a formal management training, feedback in mid year review and weekly 1:1s with the person’s manager and bi weekly meetings with me, this manager is simply not coachable. Have you leveled with someone and let them leave on their own for messaging?

So, a recruiter gave me feedback that my lack SPHR or SHRM-SCP is causing my resume to be knock out by AI and human recruiters despite my position and work history in Multinationals and being in Technology. They suggested that we put SPHR ( Lapsed). I let it lapse in 2017. What is your opinion? Plus if I were to take another certification - should I take SPHR or SHRM-SCP?

Anyone with advice for new mid-level associates? I’m a 3rd year doing biglaw M&A and have found the transition to be more difficult than starting at my firm. In particular, being responsible for managing and mentoring a first year associate on deals and reviewing/knowing their work product thoroughly (especially diligence) while also being tasked with taking the first shot at initial drafts/mark-ups of deal docs has me feeling stretched thin and making more errors than I used to.

Giving notice today. Got a job making the same amount of money I was for 1900 hours, for 1500 hours in a practice area I enjoy more. And I can bring my dogs. I am so relieved to leave ID! Had to post with the good news and thank you all for the great advice and perspective on lateraling that I’ve read here. Thank you!!

I'm the 1st in-house counsel at a tech company (200+). Starting to worry about the way they want me to practice law, but don't know if I'm overreacting. I have a very high-risk tolerance, as I've done mostly PR crises, data breaches, etc.

However, the volume of work and the way they are responding are starting to concern me ethics wise. Yesterday I was given a 200 page contract to review for GDPR. I asked for 3 day turnaround, normally I get at least 24 hours. I have no legal support.

About to move from civil legal services (10 years) to biglaw and scared shitless. Accepting an offer for a staff attorney position, so not partner track atm. Part of me feels too old to start and succeed in biglaw… Any advice from other non-traditional laterals? (Or those who’ve worked with them?)

What are some things you do to shake imposter syndrome?It’s been a while since I’ve felt overwhelming imposter syndrome. Actually, for the past couple months, I’ve finally felt like I was understanding more in my area of law and excelling. But not these past couple of weeks. I appreciate that my boss has the confidence in me to give me tasks and work in areas of law that I don’t have experience in (I constantly remind myself that these things take time and exposure). But I feel inadequate lately
