Anyone have leads on a firm hiring fully remote, entry level corporate attorneys? I am a 4th year lit associate, but would be willing to start from the bottom to change practice areas and be remote, especially if the firm pays well.
While Indian consulting folks supporting the US folks do the bulk of the analysis, churning out the data and making the ppts, all the US folks do is attend meetings. Most of know basics of neither Alteryx, Power BI nor Tableau, while everyone in India is expected to know all the three. Most of the times we are expected to work till their afternoon (our Midnight)

Hello -travelling to client site for the first time, few questions as a manager: 1. What’s my max per diem for meals? 2. I am travelling on Sunday - hoping I can charge meals on Sunday as well? 3. I decided to stay the weekend as I had to travel back again on Monday - can I charge the hotel during weekend? Since I will be avoiding the full flight cost which is huge?

Did EY announce anything about layoffs today?
Need some creative thinking here on how to lose weight
1) Cutting carbs trigger my migraine 2) I do 16h intermittent fasting, DFGF 3) I limited to 60 min of being active a day. Working at the computer, and trying to spend as much time as possible with my son. He has cerebral palsy, so being active together is out of question. Him being active means being slow for me. If we go on a hike together he can only walk for 30 min, and he does it slowly. 4) I can’t stick to schedule
i’m a product designer with about 5+ YOE. I recently moved to the US on an H4 Visa. I’m hoping to get my EAD in a year’s time…. wondering if there’s anyway I could continue to consult or work with early stage startups maybe (without pay of course) and then transition to a paid role when the EAD arrives?
Wanting to learn a new language in 2017 (Portuguese) anyone ever used Pimsleur or any other online self taught programs that helped? Would love to do an actual class but schedule doesn't work
Additional Posts in In-House Counsel
What are your thoughts about waiving the jury trial in Venue/Dispute Resolution clauses?
Hi All. I am a little confused what the rule is for practicing as a remote in-house counsel. For example, if my employer’s corporate office is based in Texas, but I live in Florida and work from Florida, do I have to register as in-house counsel in both states or either states. I appreciate any insights. Thanks.
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!
Love that I can actually call out sick from work now that I’m in house (vs before in big law)!
I got a job in-house 6 months after working at a law firm. I really love the work I’m doing (a little bit of everything) but am not getting the mentorship and training I should be getting. Do you think I should try to get a job at a law firm and then try to go back in-house in 2-3 years? Or just try to switch companies to get better mentorship?
Has anyone changed areas of law while in-house? If so, how did you do it and what was that like?
End of Year Review is coming up. This is my first one in-house and im not great at selling myself. Anyone have suggestions for what things should be included? I do litigation and haven’t really had a real victory. All cases have been settlement candidates and the clients are happy but feel like that’s not enough to stand out.
Three months in as corporate counsel (out of big law) at a non-faang pub tech company and am starting to feel disillusioned. Some aspects are exciting, but others feel more administrative/fixing other dept’s mistakes/being the scapegoat. Starting to worry if commercial lawyers are getting more marketable experience and/or have better career prospects going forward? Thoughts?
Anyone go from litigation in-house to in-house corporate? I'm in-house litigation now, but I realize that those roles are harder to come by, and so wondering if I should get ahead of myself sooner rather than later and jump to corporate to expand my skill set and set up for more exit opportunities in the future. 10 YOE in Lit.
Has your GC ever lectured/criticized you about how to talk to business development? Had BD ask me if we can accept a vendor contract “as is” after I spent a bunch of time making edits on a Friday evening due to the “urgency” of the contract. I told BD certain provisions I simply couldn’t sign off on (e.g. unilateral indemnification), but that id defer to their judgment call. Now GC wants to talk to me😩
How long did it take y’all to find your in-house job? I’m smart and hard working. Just tired of the biglaw grind and ready for a more humane job. I can’t seem to get ANY traction with in-house job apps😭 really regretting going to law school at all. Feels like I’ll be on the exhausting law firm treadmill forever.
Regretting moving in-house. I was an 8th year associate at a v10 biglaw firm but moved in house six months ago and am regretting it. The pay has been hard to stomach but the bigger concern is that the hours and work are not what I expected. Is it too late to go back to a firm since I was so senior when I left? Should I just stick it out a while longer and then find a new in house job? Appreciate any advice.
I'm a 3rd-year corporate transactional attorney with a private firm. Around 50 attorneys, which is as big as it gets for the state I'm in. I've become disillusioned with the partnership track career path fairly quickly and don't think it's for me. Before taking a large pivot and leaving the law entirety, I've thought about going in-house.
(1) Are there any downsides to going in-house too early?
(2) Would it make it more difficult to go back to private practice if I don't like that experience?
I'm thinking of moving inhouse from biglaw. Do you worry about job security since going inhouse? While biglaw sucks, I never have to worry about losing my job for anything other than my own performance.
So I’m doing insurance defense in house and I’m wondering what senior managers pay starts out at . I feel like my position maxes around 160K currently at 120K . Also how much are bonuses usually I’m in my first few months 😅
Anyone have rough TC numbers for google counsel (in Chicago - does Google alter TC based in cost of living?). Any downsides to being located in Chicago? Thanks!
Hey there! Interested to know if anyone has worked with an executive or career coach. If yes, did you find the experience helpful? Why did you go and what did you learn/do? Thanks!
Lately, there has been a lot of “shopping around” by business units for the legal advice they want to hear. One has now gone over my head twice to the GC to get a legal “okay” that I advised against. “Tattling” on me first saying “no.” These power plays are really frustrating. We have a culture of “getting the client to YES,” but it’s hard for me to do that when I know the “yes” will bring certain liability to us. Is there an effective strategy to succeeding in this type of atmosphere?
Are there any recruiters for in house positions in this bowl? I’m a third year data privacy associate at a midsize firm and I’m looking to work somewhere that does a lot of consumer marketing (likely a retail brand?). PM me if you’ve got some leads you’d be willing to share! TIA.
