I see news articles all the time about Big 4 entering the legal market. Has anyone heard of this? I’m curious to see if an attorney providing legal services while working at B4 will make the same as a big law associate. Could this be the end of the huge big law starting salary?

Big 4 is in the legal market outside the USA. ABA regs prevent accountants from working with attorneys in the US.

Except some states like CA and AZ have loosen that rule.

This isn’t new. ILC sits in the DC office of PwC and provides legal services outside of the US. Its a part of network not PwC US. There are enough restrictions w/r/t US legal services that it’s not a Big Law competitor.

I am seriously considering early retirement because it is so emotionally draining on me. So many younger staff in here and all I see is complaints. Am I alone?

Hi guys, I would like to have your opinion. In a big 4, do you think it is awkward or strange to have a drink with a manager as a junior late in the night ? We talked a bit, she accepted directly. (I am a male, she is a female) Thanks for your answer !
