Is it possible to lateral as a counsel with 10+ years experience to another firm with a path to being considered for partner? Or is the chance of making partner gone if it doesn’t happen at the first firm?

Very dependent on your target firms and your ability to build a book of business (and put together an attractive and convincing business plan). It’s a challenge but definitely can be done.

It’s easier to lateral as a mid-level associate, but I do know some counsel that have done it as well. It certainly wouldn’t hurt to look. It will depend on what the other firm’s needs are; generally if they are bringing in someone that senior as a lateral, they are looking to grow a practice area.
