I cut a year when I joined my current firm last year. Currently billing insane hrs and getting great feedback. Would it be reasonable to ask to reinstate my class year? How does the process even work?

Probably no harm in asking gently at review time but we often cut lateral associates 2-3 years and I’m not aware that we have ever restored the cut years. One observation. If you want to make partner at the firm the cut is a HUGE blessing. It gives you more time to build relationships and a reputation.

This. The cut is working in your favor. Roll with it.
