Was it really tough to get back into biglaw? I keep hearing it’s nearly impossible to go back once you go in-house. 6th year corp/m&a associate weighing the leap this year.

I haven't gotten back to big law but the processes are way different. Big law as separates the steps into way smaller chunks then creates departments around that. So it not just paralegal vs attorney or lit vs prelit vs trial vs depo/mediation, it's each tiny step within has it's own separate department. This usually helps with expanding the types of practices too. Or one type of practice can be separated into it's mini types with all these mini parts for big law. There generally are not enough attorneys for that in smaller firms. Furthermore, attorneys have a broader set of duties in small firms. Ideally, in larger firms it's approval of documents, in person negotiations, and then tough questions in the larger. Oh, and the socio-political stuff. Usually they even have legal assistants to attend trials attorneys aren't required to attend, like the judge approvals and stuff. I'd say the transition means catching up on case law and finding law gaps for attaining game changing cases when going back to big law. But,what don't know?? Lol!

Hi! Does anyone have any advice/good resources on becoming better at case studies? I.e. if a company wants to roll out x, then figuring out which metrics I’d want to look at, etc. those kinds of questions. I have an analyst interview soon, and feel good about the technical part but not so confident on the case studies part. Thank you in advance!
