It seems like both on here and TLS there has been a lot of discussion lately of non-legal exit ops with a biglaw corporate background, and especially from a v10. Most of the discussion is centered on finance and investing roles in NYC. The conclusion is typically that it is very difficult but doable with the right background and luck. I’m curious if anyone has been able to lateral from a v10 to a non legal role in a smaller market where their experience stands out more than in NYC?

If you want to break into a non-legal role in a smaller legal market, I’d first get a legal role in that market. Local connections are even more important in smaller markets than they are in larger ones. People in those markets are still quite sophisticated. A few years at a NYC firm isn’t going to be some shocking thing to them.

TLS still exists? Is it still popping in the off topic mega threads like back in 2011-12?

Probably not like, from what it sounds like, the glory days but I’m a first year and check it occasionally.

Has anyone made a switch out of accounting and more info with an FPA (financial analyst) or operations role? I would imagine it can’t be too hard to leverage an accounting background to do this.

Away from accounting and into FPA or Operations.
