I’m upset that I’m always behind in the ambitious and lofty goals my managing partner imposes on the case. He wants to try every case we get on the first setting but hasn’t had a full staff in the two years I’ve been here. I’m so tired.

13 years as a litigator - civil and crim. I don’t think I’ve ever gone to trial on the first trial setting and I’ve never once thought to judge myself for it. Don’t sweat it!

Hi, everyone! I am extremely passionate about issues such as climate change and gun violence, and how money in politics leads to inaction and disinformation regarding these issues. Does anyone have any insight as to where I should be looking for employment opportunities? Practice areas, the type of organization, traditional vs. non-traditional law jobs? Any help or guidance would be appreciated. I really want to make a change. Thank you!

Hi!! What’s the best way to research ways in which I may structure a company for tax purposes. Specifically one which is registered within the EU but operates in a third country solely. The EU LTD was established as a way to a) mitigate against the instability within the third country b) ensure funds could be easily transferred from clients due to ever changing restrictions. I’m not really familiar with this area of law but have to sort this out for personal reasons

Do I go back to my old firm? 3rd year lit. Been at new firm since start of the year, $130k. Left old firm on good terms, only left because I moved 4 hours to new firm to be with boyfriend (we’re no longer together). I told friends at old firm I wasn’t happy in new city and new firm is much more demanding (1900+ vs. 1750) and several partners are becoming intolerable. Gossip at old firm led to managing partner calling me to offer $110k to return and do the exact work I want to do. Worth it?
