Milbank PF is elite. Not personally there but anything finance related is what Milbank is known for. Don’t think there’s a whole lot of WLB though. It’s top tier big law after all.

Bit late to respond but confirming the people are great to work with and work is very interesting. Definitely a lot of work though!

Any of you manage WFH / telecommute more than 50% of the time? When I was an associate, you hardly saw the principal/owner. Now that I’m 7 months into partnership, I just started a set up for WFH myself. It’s basic right now, but once fully set up, I don’t see a need to go to the office other than client meetings. But in my area of law (domestic relations/family), even in a pandemic, people love to just stop by. So that’s one of my concerns if I transition to WFH.

Feeling a bit down today. Yet another friend just told me she is pregnant — not a complete surprise, I suspected when I saw her on a prior socially-distanced outing. But still frustrated at myself. I’ve had multiple egg retrievals and have already had two cancelled transfers due to issues with my lining each time. Just feels like everyone around me is getting pregnant while for me, it’s still issue after issue popping up. Also reminded of the fact that I had a miscarriage a year ago this time.
