Desperately trying to get out of ID after two years. Would moving up to a larger firm like WSHB be worth it with the ultimate goal of getting into commercial or corporate lit in the future? Definitely a better firm then where I’m at but my goal is feeling more and more futile by the day

Try Lewis Brisbois. Better option


Depends on the department but there’s a good platform to gain skills and go to another firm

There is often a long hard struggle out of ID, if you can’t get into a commercial lit position at a small firm then I would try going to a larger ID firm as an interim step as well. Good luck!


I went from WSHB to a regional mid size with great pay. WSHB did not help me land the interview. I wouldn’t recommend and the pay is abysmal.


How are you sure it didn’t?

That will really only help if they have non-ID work that you can support as part of your practice, at least ID worn that lends itself to non-ID work (think med mal/healthcare, coverage, products). Otherwise, ID is ID.

I selected new tax regime in the company 'xyz' portal for April 2021-March 2022. I left this company in jan 2022 and tax of 16k got deducted from F&F settlement.

I have investment in EPF and submitted the rent receipts to the company for tax exception for HRA. But in F&F, based on new regime tax deducted.

During filing ITR for assessment year 2022-2023, can I file by selecting old regime and get this 16k return?

Has anyone left ID, then gone back and then left again? I left ID a year ago to do L&E. I enjoy this area of law a lot, but my firm is mega toxic and there's 0 chance of growth here. I have the opportunity to work with an incredible partner/mentor I worked with when I did ID, but at a different ID firm. I will be given resources and assistance to develop whatever practice area of law I want and the firm wants to expand to employment law. Is this worth the risk of getting stuck in ID again?


For those of you who are in-house, how did you get comfortable with needing to be more of a generalist? I know some in-house roles, especially at large companies, are specialized. However, even then it just seems like you’re expected to know about so many different areas (with far less support than at a firm). I’m tired of billable hours, but I really love (& feel more comfortable) being a specialist.
