Hey Fishes, I have joined DI only this month and Im trying to claim the LTA as a taxable component to receive it along with my Salary. This also requires an approval? I have raised the request on 13th and the same still shows as Awaiting approval. How long would the approval take and is there any cut off date within which we need to claim the LTA in-order to get it along with our monthly salary? Thanks.

Considering making a lateral move as a biglaw (Kirkland/Sidley/Cleary/Paul Weiss type firm) mid level litigation associate in a major market to a similar firm in the same market. I don’t dislike my current firm or work, have very strong reviews, and good relationships with some key partners. Main motivation for lateraling is for potential of a significant signing bonus given the current landscape, and general uncertainty about future at my current firm. Would appreciate any advice/insights.
