How many firms is too many? I’ve practiced 13 years. Since I was a 1st year associate, every 3 years or so I’ve been recruited for another opportunity that is hard to pass up.

Should I decline to pursue the opportunity just so I have a longer track record at my current firm? This will be my 4th if I move.
