Looking to lateral to another firm. I’m a 3rd year at a mid size firm. Any advice/insight on what a firm requires when applying/interviewing.

Interested to hear any success stories about M&A attorneys at middle market firms (firm is 600+ but is regional and only does middle market transactions) and from an unranked law school finding an M&A in house role. I want to go in house but can’t fathom doing commercial transactions for the rest of my career but M&A in house gigs for obvious reasons tend to be at Fortune 500 companies that almost always require top credentials. Should I give up? Is my resume just going to the shredder?

I need an adult. Our team paralegal and senior attorney do not get along. Senior attorney asks for things to be done usually around 4-6pm. Paralegal will ignore the request completely, either because it’s “last minute” or just out of spite. Senior attorney does not respect boundaries, but paralegal does not realize that ignoring the request just makes more work for the rest of us. This is exhausting and occurs at least 2 to 3 times a week. Is there any way to resolve this conflict?

Given the lateral market and that I’m happy where I’m at and have nothing to lose, I’m thinking I’ll ask for a ridiculous signing bonus and just see what happens. Is $100k too big an ask in this market for a rising 4th year? I’ve seen talk of $300k+ signing bonuses being thrown around (likely for more senior associates obviously).
