If you enjoy your practice area (the actual substantive work, not the team), can you please name it? I find mine incredibly boring but not easy enough to justify the bore and am brainstorming areas to switch to. Thanks :)

I have been doing trademark and copyright law, specifically prosecution for the last 16 years. Generally low-pressure and although it is deadline oriented (like any practice area) they can be anticipated and predicted. Plus, it’s booming given social media!

If I wasn't in the non profit/direct service space, I'd definitely be doing soft IP. Took IP my last semester of law school and really enjoyed it

If you want transactional work, look into commercial leasing. Lots of general real estate lawyers do a mediocre job, think they are great and it’s an easy area. I always get a laugh when they are opposite me - I can throw them a cookie and they walk away preening like heroes. It’s actually a complex area where you can always grow.

Healthcare M&A and regulatory compliance. I’m functionally a corporate/M&A lawyer (I do non-healthcare corporate and tax work too) with a specialization in healthcare. Just advised a doctor on state healthcare regulations and HIPAA. Later will be going through an asset purchase agreement for the acquisition of a medical practice by a larger health network. It’s a super in demand practice area but hard to get into without the right background/experience.

Appellate practice and try support. I love writing a brief and piecing a story together and working to change (or reinforce) the law.

Construction law! Sophisticated parties, cool projects, and at the end of the day, you (kind of) helped build something real!

Agreed. Construction litigation will bring you complex matters in term of legal analysis, number of parties, technical questions, balancing business interests...plus there is often a touch of drama...while parties are sophisticated (most of the time) they tend to have a high tolerance to risk

like

I have a mixed practice, but eminent domain, land use development, other real property matters, some environmental work. Generally all litigation. Love what I do and particularly enjoy seeing projects actually get built.

Business litigation - (almost) never a dull moment, if you like challenging work.

🐠 with stationary bikes at home: any thoughts on upright vs spin style bikes? I have a knee injury and would like to purchase a stationary bike to help stay active at home, but not sure how to pick between the two. (In physical therapy I believe they had upright bikes, but have heard spinning is great too and have never tried it). Any tips, especially from those who have improved a knee injury, would be greatly appreciated!

I just wanted to take the time as a consultant in the infant stages of my career to thank all the people who offer to support and guide others and are patient with new employees as we develop. I’ve dealt with a lot of condescending and derailing people, but I'm glad that in my life, there always seems to be at least one senior person offering support.
