Folks: what are your thoughts about Taylor Wessing? I focus on VC and M&A work and TW seems to be a good fit but I don’t know how they’re viewed in the market and what the pay is. Any insight helpful!

How many years have you been practicing for OP?

Well, their VC work profile is very good and good fit for me. But I’m worried I don’t know a whole lot about how they’re perceived in the market.

They do a lot of VC work but everything they've done I've not been impressed with. Bear in mind, they've got a close relationship with Wilson Sonsini, so they don't provide a seamless experience for UK/US work.

Give Cooley, Orrick and Goodwin a look for VC instead.

Thank you, that’s helpful. Why do you you weren’t impressed? Would you mind providing more information?

Got it, thank you. That’s helpful to know.

Been with a marketing agency for almost 2 years now. Was overlooked for my annual review and then in August the company was acquired, so I've been part of the other company for 90+days now.

Asking for an increase soon and curious what metrics or evidence would be best to present my case. I would really like to grow within rather than jumping ship.

London folk, question for you: do firms and offices in London not recruit candidates directly?

What are peoples opinions on work from home? It seems to be an unpopular opinion but as a junior I despise it.

I’ve never at all had mental health issues before but now am really starting to feel burnt out and anxious most of the time. What do you think?
