I just heard a couple of days ago that an employee was fired by HR for booking a first class ticket that was *approved* by their direct management. The employee was required to make a trip for a work function that involved C-levels and others from their department in a team building type of event. The employee spent their own money to make this, and to boot is a single mom.

Is it me or does this seem insanely unfair and out of left field? How does management not get in trouble??

I’m an IP associate (focused mainly on trademarks) in an AMLaw 200 firm (slightly below NY market pay) and I’m curious to know what IP groups (mainly trademark related practices) at V50 firms are like. My practice is relatively chill. No major fires to put out - steady and predictable 8-9 billable hours a day. I can generally not work on weekends. Am I at a unicorn shop or is this normal for Trademark practices?


Partner and Breakfast Part 3: My direct line Partner called me into his office and said I am to be removed from his team and moving forward I will be working with the Breakfast Partner. I thought this was going to end with the bagels. I told the direct line Partner that I really like working for him and if there is any chance I could stay on his team. He said the Breakfast Partner needs strong people on his team. I have a 1:1 with the breakfast partner next week to discuss.
