Curious to hear from anyone who has successfully made the transition from bankruptcy to a broader practice (either litigation or transactional)

I know someone who made the transition, and they did it by clerking in a prestigious circuit. With that on their resume, firms were more willing to accommodate their practice area preferences in spite of their experience.

It seems to me like that would be a tough thing to do. Probably easiest to do while you're a junior associate, maybe by passing through a clerkship.

Yeah, it’s got to be done as a young attorney and via clerking. It just get too hard otherwise because you get pigeon holed as you move up the ladder.

I know someone who did it. Went from 8 years bankruptcy to general corporate practice. He was good friends with the head of the corporate practice. Outside of something like that, I’ve never seen it happen
