I left my practice and joined a state agency to learn a new skill set then went back into private practice and I’m infinitely happier.

Went to smaller firm and took a pay cut.

Took a class year cut to go from patent prosecution in a foreign jurisdiction to US IP litigation in big law

Any insight into what NY Biglaw counsel positions pay? I imagine it varies but I think my firm may be majorly lowballing with basically just senior associate salary.
