UK associate here. Do you get your trainee a christmas gift?! I’ve only had trainees since covid so this will be my first christmas with a trainee where we’re not working remotely. I feel like it would be weird but what do people think? And what if he gets me one?
Considering possible relocation to Atlanta for family reasons. Anyone know a good recruiter who would give me a lay of the big law land?

I went from trying to be a rock star associate to just doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What does it take to get fired in big law? Besides extreme outlier situations like sexual harassment/mistreatment of staff/insubordination, etc.
I’m leaving biglaw after 3.5 years. The people in my group are fine but never developed a strong bond with anyone including partners (I will be pushed out sooner or later). Also I don’t really like the work (deals and fund investments). Moving to a much smaller firm with slightly lower billable target that pays market. I will be doing more interesting work, in a smaller group where partners seem to care about my growth. God I hope this is a right move.. any advice would be much appreciated.
What’s the cringiest thing you did as a junior that makes your shudder when you think of it now?
Kind of funny. Interviewed with a firm beginning of October. Went through three rounds, was told the team really liked me in the final round blah blah. Then 5 weeks have passed with radio silence. Every time my recruiter reaches out they say they are “still collecting feedback” —- obviously didn’t get the position but, has anyone ever dealt with this? I’m generally perplexed lol.
Chicago people: convince me it’s a good move. Sick of NYC and keep hearing Chicago is the nicer alternative. How’s your WLB? Is big law there as bad as it is in NYC? Also do you live in the city or suburbs?
How long does it take to start ramping up after joining a new firm? Is it normal to 1 or 3 billables a day your first 1-2 weeks?
Mid-Level here. Giving notice and transitioning matters. Partner is demanding that I take a pro bono matter I have been staffed on to the new firm. Partner says I will be burning bridges, ruining relationships, and violating my ethical obligations if I don’t take “my” client with me. I didn’t bring the client in, just answered the firm’s call for assistance. Partner has indicated he will call my new firm and make demands. Has this ever happened to any of you associates? Advice?
Anyone who has switched from corporate to litigation during your first year in big law - how did you do it? Did you move to another firm or you were able to switch practice groups within your firm? Did you ever regret your decision? What made you make the switch?
