What's everyone getting for holiday gifts?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
European fish - going on a trip Wednesday to Sunday in the EU. PTO this week, but not next. Are you one to bring your laptop on the trip in case if absurd circumstance, corona etc. or leave it at home and just bring work phone?
In 2023 I'm wanting to help make my management more effective. So, I'm looking for a book or a couple of books to gift my team this holiday season. I would like books that focus on communication and taking ownership. Any recommendations?

I’m looking for gay-friendly vacation options for April next year. I’m based in Colorado and want something international. What are your favorite spots and why?
Did I just email a doc reviewer for the Secretary of State to ask whether the coworker who’d been assigned to my documents was on vacation? Yes. Did my documents get filed and sent to me immediately? Yup. Sometimes passive-aggressive behavior really does get you where you need to be.

I’m really concerned about this company if the “head of global well-being” is having a full blown panic attack about returning to work following a holiday 🤨

Did yall hear about the Chicago mom who had her kid taken away because she wouldn't accept that her child was transgender? As a parent, that's actually kind of scary that the government would that with no basis of abuse or neglect. Smh

Can you set up a vanguard taxable account and essentially have it auto invest in VTI/VOO every month from savings? It doesn’t look like you can do that with ETFs.

Insight into Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz in NYC? WLB? Support for young associates? Anything helps!
Had a final interview last Friday, what are my chances to hear back on this holiday week?
Shout out to the Kirkland associate who just asked my partner to turn comments by Friday. Solid flex.
Does anyone have any insight on Carlton Fields? Particularly the Atlanta office, though any information about firm culture, work, good or bad is appreciated.
It just happens that this week I spent a fair amount of time negotiating with clients/potential clients on legal fees - and it is exhausting. I am less than 2 years in private practice...
Any tips for evaluating the culture of a firm/practice group as a lateral candidate? I thought the folks at my current firm would be good, but there's a difference between coming across friendly in an interview and being good partners to work for.
That moment when your "smart" plan to boost your hours this month by working the Labor Day weekend (thus turning down all the fun plans your friends made) becomes sitting on your hands & feeling dumb because all the partners are too busy to delegate anything. The worst kind of "off" day is one you planned to /wanted to work, but there's no billable work...
Is it true that it’s exceedingly difficulty to transition from insurance defense work (7+ years) to either commercial litigation or an in-house position? I’m worried about staying on this path for too long, becoming pigeon holed and not being able to get out of it.
Started at a new firm a recently. I’m a little anxious about my growth opportunities. I’ve been working and billing like crazy, but the firm essentially charges insurance rates - but also are really conservative about billing and cut my hours a lot. It seems they’re really happy with my work. They’ve brought up the issue of my time and said I should be able to capture my time as long as I break the entries up more. But I think they’re still cutting it. I’m worried I won’t justify my pay goals..
Are there any American lawyers who live/practice in Europe here? What’s your practice area and how did you end up where you are?
If an associate exceeds his hours/collections, gets his work done, etc., but is typically in the office from 6:30am - 4:45pm so that he can see his family in the evening, do you view this negatively?
A question for the associates:
How should I talk to a new associate on my team (4 mos.) about critical issues including 1) spending too much time on a single project; 2) not meeting expectations in terms of number of billable hours; 3) botching easy procedural issues? This person has significant skills and writes very well. But their work is consistently turned in at the last minute, they have to be corrected on procedures regularly, and they never come talk to me without an invitation.
Looking for some summer reading material. Wanted to see if anyone had suggestions for books on litigation and or business/ money investments.
Dear my fellow young attorneys: When you buy a new suit jacket or skirt, the cuts in the back will be tacked by two small peices of thread. These are suppose to be cut open once purchased. 👍🏻
I’m getting antsy with every day that passes after having an initial interview for a government position. I’m currently in private practice where things move fast. Is there any benefit to “checking in”? If so, how long should I wait before doing so?
Anyone have a good response to RFP template/sample? Jury rigging something right now but, man, there has gotta be a better way.
Is this an LSAT game?
Probably doesn’t matter. If they don’t want to pay you for the time off they’ll make your last day 11/17.
Thanks, I figured I’d present both options and let them choose. Have many friends and mentors at current firm and want to exit as gracefully/professionally as possible.
Take a longer vacation and start 2 weeks later. It’s the holidays.
You could try to give them the full two weeks and keep the vacation days as well (it’s on a weekend anyway), but they could cut you off prematurely, ask you to work the full notice period, or even ice you out and take you off your current matters right away such that it doesn’t even matter. I gave my last firm two weeks and by the last week I was off all of my matters and no one was talking to me, including my former supervising partners.
Probably shouldn't confirm start date at new firm till you give notice and negotiate end date at current firm
Lol I would politely but firmly say “no”. If they terminated me and I asked them if I could stay on longer they’d tell me to get fucked most likely. What do I gain from giving a firm I’m already leaving more time at my own expense?
I haven’t committed to a 12/5 or any other start date with the new firm. I generally agree with the proposition that I don’t need to negotiate an end date with the old firm. I’m just trying to be accommodating and professional.
Ask to start at new firm 12/12. Will give you a little cushion. Start dates are usually flexible
