Does a senior counsel have the power to ask recruitment to hire you as an entry level associate or that simply up to partners?

The partners are ultimately in charge. But if the counsel recommends to the partners you come in as entry level, the partners may well listen.

Definitely up to the partners.

I’d love to hear some of your best tips for mentoring/managing an enthusiastic and sharp young employee. Like how to have engaging productive 1:1s or working sessions. Either from the perspective of managers or what a manager has done for you that felt right. I have a junior PMM who’s killing it and want to be sure I don’t just slip into the “ok what’s on the agenda” routine for all of our 1:1s so he stays engaged and I grow as a manager. Our company is very “people first”. Ty!

I am a mid level associate but have only been in private practice a little over a year. I'm still learning firm life etiquette. I work closely and primarily with only 2 partners and get along quite well with them on a professional level. Should I get them anything as an end of year "thank you"/xmas present? Is it weird for an associate to give a partner a gift?

If your firm allows remote work 2 days out of the week, do you tell the partners if you decide to work from a vacation destination? On a Thursday and Friday, for example. I feel like as long as I’m available, it doesn’t matter where I am and they don’t need to know 🤷🏽‍♀️

Pointed out a flaw in the firm client's case/theory, just to ask for some clarification and prep for depo while going over recent discovery. Nothing confrontational and partners had already confirmed it was a question worth asking.

Client called me an 'idiot' and asked me to be removed from case. (I read it as defensiveness). Partners want to see if they can mend the relationship (so I can remain staffed as I know the case best).

What would you do.

What should I do?
