I’m a junior litigation lawyer based in Windsor looking to lateral to corporate big law. I have been doing commercial litigation, tax litigation, and tax planning. I’ve done corporate reorganization, corporate structuring, rollovers so corporate would not be completely new to me. I did a solicitor rotation during articling and was involved with several m&a deals. Has anyone managed to make the jump from litigation in Windsor to Toronto big law corporate? Your advice is greatly appreciated.

You might need to make some steps along the way. Try getting a corporate role in Windsor, or with a smaller Toronto firm first.

Hi Ladies. Reconnected with someone I had a soft spot for and it turns out it was just a rebound while he was hurting from his ex of 3 years (first love broke up mutually due to distance). I know it is irrational because he was emotionally closed off the entire time, but it had brought up deep wounds and my fear of abandonment that I’ll never be good enough or compare to that ex. He ghosted me after reassuring he wanted to stay connected and I’m emotionally struggling. How can I cope?
