Firms aren’t even matching the Cravath scale. Market is not that hot. Extra bonuses are very unlikely.

Question about tenants.. I have this inherited tenant who I am 90% sure are involved in some type of drugs scheme.

Long story short I’ve gotten them out of the house but then I was talking to a cousin of the estate and when I said fiancée and who was trying to live there he kind of chuckled and said I’m not even going to go there… Is fiancée code for something ??

What are the things you wish you knew when starting big law in NY? I’m lateraling to big law after working at a boutique firm in DC (5 attorneys). I’m a 2nd year associate but I’m starting out as a 1st year at the new firm because I had little litigation experience (and had no prob with that because the offer was solid and liked the idea of a smoother transition into big law). I’m very excited about the new job but also nervous about what to expect. Would appreciate all the advice I can get!
