A recruiter reached out to me (calling my assistant nonetheless), I told her I wasn’t interested. Now HER BOSS from the same firm is trying to reach me to make me change my mind. I’d like at least a box of apology chocolates to talk to them ever again.

Call her bosses boss to tell them to stop calling


Recruiters have such a bad rep. They try to eat people alive


Honestly, as recruiters all we have is our reputation and those bad apples ruin it for everyone. I've been a legal recruiter for 25 years and pride myself on my ability to build relationships. Sorry you had a bad experience but please don't assume we all behave badly

Hey guys.

Evaluating an offer from EY. I would be joining at Senior 1 level in their Workforce Advisory practice (specifically, learning team). I have 3.5 YOE in Deloitte in the same practice (offshore USI team in India).
They are offering $70k CAD. I have an MBA and live in Toronto. I feel this offer is very much on the lower end - even despite the upcoming recession etc.

How much should I realistically ask for? Tips to negotiate?

The other side just served well over 300 RFAs on us, covering basically every conceivable fact in the (large) case. Federal court, no local rule limits. Even putting together objections will take many, many hours, not to mention chasing down answers to everything. Depositions are just getting started. How would you navigate this? Kick the can down the road?

My boyfriend and I make 200K combined and live in NJ. We have $1000 in monthly car payments combined. That’s all we owe. Our credit scores are in the 800s. We have 50K to put down on a home. We have done the math and I know we can afford much more but he doesn’t want to buy more than a 400K home. I’m almost positive we can afford 500K and be more than ok. But then he starts to talk about how much kids cost and how we will be house poor and we won’t be able to afford kids. 🤔 Am I insane??

Hey everyone, I have a little bit of a Ontario Employment Law question. I recently signed an employment contract to work in a company that is not related in Law whatsoever (still probation). There is a possibility I might land a job at a Law Firm here in Ontario. While I understand that it is a bad practice to leave a place of work as a new hire, I do wish to work for this Law Firm as it is within my area of preference. Would I be within the wrong to tender an effective immediate resignation?

There's a misconception among attroneys that I never understood. To a point hard work will bring success but if you can't bring in business then you have nothing to work hard on. You eventually have to kill your own food. Why do people not understand this.


Partner’s housewarming party. Any ideas of what to bring? (Aside from wine 🍷 )


I currently make $160k as an immigration associate with no billables but a not so great boss. I can honestly sort of skate by unnoticed for the most part. Is it worth it to jump ship for $182.5k with an 1850 billable requirement and possibly a less cushy/more direct responsibility role


Happy Thursday everyone! I know that as a profession and especially during this unprecedented time we constantly experience and are bombarded with negativity. Including the negativity in our lives away from work, which we see every time we get on social media platforms, or watch the news etc... therefore I thought we could put some positivity out there today and share some positive experiences that have been a result of this wfh/quarantine/pandemic.


Just lateraled and looks like I’ll be taking on a sizeable privacy practice from an associate who left recently. Any benefit to CIPP and CIPM training/certification as a lawyer? In DC if that matters.

I'm in big law, but I've always been fascinated by mono e mono litigation. A friend from undergrad who ended up going to law school told me about a case he recently had in which he could get the plaintiff the backoff.

The matter involved a substantial amount of money that was lent for the purchase of a car outright. My friend's client was in his mid-twenties, and it was his uncle who lent him money. He leveraged his client potentially declaring bankruptcy to get a settlement.
