We have a relatively large house so I’ve prepared a guest bedroom where he’s going to continue to quarantine but any other tips on staying safe that worked for you if someone tested positive in your house when someone test positive?
A have a former client (who filed a grievance that was dismissed by my state bar and sent me a demand letter that an attorney responded to on my behalf) has now filled a BBB complaint (my firm isn’t BBB accredited) against me. The complaint doesn’t properly name my firm, refers to an attachment that it failed to include, and gives virtually no detail about the complaint. I’ve searched and my firm doesn’t appear ANYWHERE on the site. My inclination is to ignore it. Any advice?

For those that support the marketing team… any good resources to get caught up on the AdTech lingo and just generally how it works?
I am 7 years out in a transactional practice (real estate) and have an opportunity to move in house at a regionally respected company from a midsize firm. I have WFH flexibility at my current firm but bill about 1850-1900 per year. It would be about a 25% paycut. I have also been offered partnership starting in 2022 if I stay - not entirely clear what that long term structure looks like (would have to develop a partially independent book in next 3-5 years). Am I crazy if I leave?
I interviewed with a big pharma company last week. They said 2 more rounds of interviews with offers in early to mid April so I assumed things were moving quick. Im coming from small firm, not in-house. If I haven’t heard from them by the end of the week is it safe to assume I didn’t make it to round 2? Or does in-house always move slowly?
What is the job market looking like these days for an in-house attorney with 10+ YOE (especially if fully remote)? I took an AGC job almost a year ago for a multitude of reasons that I did not have a choice in, but my base salary is at least 60-80K less than it should be and the benefits are lacking/nonexistent. I really like my boss, my company, I love what I do, and I don’t want to job hop, but the pay is not ever going to be what I need (especially in comparison to the job duties).
Am I the only in-house counsel starting to feel like lately we aren’t doing anything anymore... not sure if I’m mad about it though.
Boss is gaslighting? Just experienced this for the first time - and would love to hear others’ experiences, too. For the past few years, my micromanager boss asked that I send them every draft of every contract to review, no matter how minor. In my performance review, when asked why I wasn’t promoted, they said that a reason was because I need to learn to stop sending them drafts to review! I said that I only did this because they asked for it, and they said they don’t remember saying that!
Has anyone moved from antitrust private practice to a non-antitrust in-house role? If so, what kind of role?
I have been offered a position in-house at a $500M-$1B company, mid-sized city LCOL, 10 YOE in private practice. They offered me $120k, w opp for undefined discretionary bonus. No paid parental leave or 401(k) match & only 1 week PTO in first year (but claim they have discretion for more). Is there any way to salvage this? Salary guides suggest TC should be around $200-215k. I want to get my foot in the door but this seems crazy low.
Can anyone recommend any business books for - new in house counsel? I feel like I am totally lost when it come to the business side of the company I work for. I work for a software startup if that helps. Thanks!

For Google, can you basically only get in with a reference? Should you write up a cover letter with your application? Its optional and my understanding is that companies don’t have time to read it anyway. Currently an lower level counsel at FAANG.
Have you had to change your start date after accepting an offer and how did it go? I told them I need to give 30 day notice and so I set my start date (incorrectly) assuming the background check and drug screen would take a few days to clear. However, the drug screen is now taking over a week and a half (still not finished, maybe tomorrow). Apparently things are much slower due to staffing issues and labs are backed up. It’s cutting into my 30 day notice significantly. Thoughts?
