I have a large team managed by 2 regional managers. I do bi weekly calls and updates on business changes etc. The other guys are day to day operations. I’ve been in post for 4 months. Im finding it hard to engage them all. They are very silent on this call and I need advice or tips on how to improve on this. This is my first experience of this tbh. They are working from different countries remotely 🥲. Helppp the old any questions at the end and a tumbleweed passes by……

I have an interview scheduled for an in house role. Turns out this company may be a client of my firm, although I’ve never done any work for them and the responsible partner is some person in another office that I’ve never met. Is this situation kosher or is there some sort of conflict?

Question for *real* adulty adults on here: I started in big law 3 years ago, but just accepted a job as an investment banker. Over the last 3 years, I re-financed my loans and took out a mortgage through special low-cost programs offered to attorneys at my law firm. Do I need to call my loan servicers and tell them about my career moves? Or can I just keep making payments and no one should worry about it?

What is the transition feasibility from in-house counsel to law firm. Really want to go into litigation. No bites on my apps. But randomly got something for an in-house counsel position where I’d be making $40-70k above an associate position. And that range just depends on the firm. Conflicted here. I am currently a criminal defense attorney with 1 year of practice from an office that provides great experience.

Law firms seem like middle school with older people. Can’t associate with certain people, everyone wants to know the private chats of others, jealousy and low self esteem run rampant, there is constant criticism of your work even if it’s good, don’t be late for anything unless you’re in an upper grade (partner) and then do whatever you like, and you just look forward to graduating (in house role).

I’m about to lateral into a BigLaw law firm in New York from another comparable firm from London (yep, international background). The offer has been made but I’d like to meet with associates before signing and the firm has agreed. I’m keen to know what the work culture is like, how work is allocated and mentoring enabled. What kind of associates should I ask to speak with and what questions should I ask?

Anyone gone from 1900 to 2000 billable hours required? It’s for more money but I’m scared.
