Based on some of the ominous posts/articles about firms going back to stealth layoffs, should I be weary about lateraling to BigLaw in a non-corporate practice area?

Have there been posts and articles about this? Only saw the one re:staff which has little to do with business being slow or attorneys. Legal Assistants at large firms make $70-120k and probably 20% do nothing all day while the rest are busy.

Imo, the lateral market is on fire and these rumors about job uncertainty are designed to scare associates into staying

Why are you lateraling?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
