Advice for Of Counsel roles? I am of counsel at a firm where I can set my own rate and keep a percentage of collections, which varies slightly depending on whether the client is one I generated or not. I’m finding that a lot of my work is for firm clients where the lawyer negotiated a flat fee (and the hours worked are less, due to efficiency etc). What is the right way for me to be compensated in this scenario?

When I have served as Of Counsel, I am able to negotiate my rate fairly easily, but am limited to a certain number of hours.

Ask for an hourly rate that you can live with, and don’t accept less just to curry favor with the partners. And on work you originate, you should be getting much more, plus a share of other timekeepers on those matters.

I think this is pretty solid OP

An hourly rate is the answer for sure. I was changing a flat fee before. But my friend suggested an hourly rate.

She told me she can't and she's not that person (she thinks she'll get the other person fired). She knows that she should and hates that she doesn't stand up for herself. What can I do to help?

Hi everyone,

I am running into quite similar issues in almost all of the companies I have worked so far: Most of the senior engineers just exclude me in the important technical meetings whereas I am doing an important part (technical) of a project. They either think I am not knowledgeable enough for a particular task or just that I am good at doing some non-technical/manual task. I am the only female in the technical team and how do I address this issue & to whom? Thanks in advance!
