Following…also curious about how many years experience is needed/what background is most desirable to make this transition? (I’m about to be a second year associate in big law gen lit and am already looking for my exit!)

Looks like a lot of us want to know, but the people doing it aren't in here 🙂

How to deal with not being staffed on deals and seeing others in your year be staffed? When asking partners directly for work, they refer you to the staffing partners.

All reviews are essentially perfect and no negative feedback. Extremely frustrating and discouraging.
