I don't think there is a fixed number, it really depends on what you want to do. I'd give the firm a chance for at least a few years before thinking about leaving. You'll need to build good experience and skills for any exit opp

Drew Titus COGO Partners - I agree that there is no fixed number if you are looking to go inhouse it depends on the client and situation. Generally, our inhouse clients are looking for someone who can hit the ground running and has gained enough experience to take ownership of projects and add value.

I think it depends on what types of exit opportunities you are looking at. I am a legal recruiter and focus on lateral placements and I frequently place first and second-year associates.
