Fox Rothschild, litigation, Delaware, mid level

Considering a move from a larger BigLaw firm to Fox Rothschild, primarily to work on matters I’m more interested in, but hopefully to also have a slightly better work life balance. I know it would be a pay cut though, and their various covid cuts have me concerned as well.

Any insight from current or former associates? What is firm culture like? Is work life balance decent enough to justify a lower salary?

Seems like their culture is great, but a much higher work load due to the nature of the company. Thanks! Happy to answer DM's too

It's not realistic to just make it a policy or requirement, because that is not the spirit of this. There must be some ways to make people WANT to go on video and be engaged, right?

How often and for how long do you see your kids?

Went under contract with a buyer for my condo last Saturday (6 days ago). Inspection has already been done, no issues and buyers aren’t asking for any repairs or price adjustment.

Their realtor claims it won’t impact our closing timeline, but could there be something shady going on?
