Pretty pissed off. I was the only associate staffed with a partner for some relatively small corporate deals throughout the summer. I am a go-to associate for this client, and starting to move into a more leading role on the deal teams. I spent the weekend editing documents on paper, only to find this AM that a senior associate (who hasn’t worked on many of these deals) made edits on our system. The partner never told me that this guy would be jumping in, otherwise (cont in comments)

Leaving a biglaw shop at end of the year. A client that I've worked with, and who has liked my work, reached out to me (a senior associate, copying all clients but copying no partners or other personnel from my firm) to ask if I could handle a new matter. They asked for a conflicts check and what my billable rate might be in the new year. I'm departing to a new, much smaller firm which will most likely have a much lower rate. How do you approach this? Alert the typical partners?

If Google did tech consulting the same way IBM and even Salesforce does to an extent, where would we land on the “prestige” scale?
