Are severance packages pretty standard in law? I was never offered severance after I was laid off a few months ago at my old firm.

Sorry to hear you were laid off. No, you were likely an at will employee and unless your contract has such an arrangement, this is not common (I don’t want to say unheard of bc it’s Probly happened in some space and time but I’ve never heard of this happening)

It really depends on the size of the firm. Larger/big law firms they’re pretty standard. Mid size and smaller shops, not so much.

This feels right to me.

At my old firm (100 lawyers), partners got severance unless they were going to a competitor.

Non-partners didn’t have any formal severance rights, and benefits were determined in a case by case basis.

I am in a small firm. We have never terminated anyone without offering severance. It’s based on length of service and role.

Yes and you might reach out through your own attorney to negotiate it. If you have no viable legal claims it’s about 2 weeks of severance per year worked
