You do hereby agree and confirm that:
1. You shall not pursue any other offer of employment by any other party during continuation of this offer. 2. Once you accept this offer, you shall not engage with any other party for another employment/other engagement opportunity.

What do you call the litigation tactic (especially in discovery) where OC hounds you to hurry up on everything, then they drag their feet and do bare minimum in return? "Speed-up slow-down" tactics?
Started out hating Zoom depos. Kind of like them now. In hour two of a co-defendant’s examination, which is entirely irrelevant to my client, and I’ve clipped my nails, stretched fully, planned a hike for the weekend, ordered my home goods off Amazon, and it’s all billable time because I’m stuck on this thing.
Hi Fish: What are my chances of landing an entry-level position in a firm with 1 year legal intern experience? I’m just feeling very down with all the rejection emails, and the 3 month wait for bar results is very irritating bc I need a way to support myself while waiting 😭 (I’ve cried about once a week at this point lol)
I’m a Canadian lawyer in London, UK for a week. Any London lawyers want to meet for a drink? I practice family law and I went to law school in the UK before becoming licensed in Canada.
I can’t express how grateful I am to work in a firm where I feel supported and appreciated. If y’all don’t have have partners who actually mentor you and care about you— get out. There are too many good people out there who you could be working for, for you to stay in a shit environment.
Quick phone call v. quick email v. chat

How much will my early career stumbles affect my future? 1st year associate at a biglaw firm; I want better pay and more sophisticated work that more "prestigious" biglaw firms can offer. But I was no-offered as a summer associate at a such a firm. My fear is that being good at school won't help anymore and I'm just stuck in this league and won't get to move "up."
Any advice on how to deal with a partner/boss who is shifting all responsibility to me with zero guidance, no mentoring, and an unwillingness to discuss the issues? (Small firm, only associate under this partner and have been working at the firm for 2 years). There are an increasing number of passive aggressive comments from the partner who expects to be completely hands off once the case lands on my desk. Wants me to figure it all out despite cases being from different areas of law.
Can anyone tell me what the approximate salary expectation would be for a second year associate at Fisher and Phillips (or an equivalent employment and labor firm)? If so, please let me know what market the estimate is based from (even if it’s a general “large city, small, or midsized city” reference). Thanks.
Texas biglaw. Let’s discuss.
Who is offering flexibility to WFH a few days a week going forward?
Just realized that when a partner says “finalize” something for them, they mean create it out of whole cloth ahahahha.
Any tips to help stay focused? WFH has been difficult for me because it’s so hard to focus (harder than it is at the office). I know I’m so lucky to still have my job & work coming in, so I feel bad.
