Let’s see who remembers their MPRE. Just found a position at my dream firm I would like to interview for; however, I was also just placed on a deal where dream firm is the opposite counsel. I don’t want my current firm to know I’m thinking of leaving in case I don’t, so asking for a conflicts waiver doesn’t seem feasible. But the deal won’t close until next year, so I doubt the position will be around if I wait that long. Any advice?

You just won’t work that deal if you get hired by the opposing firm…

What you should be worried about are allegations that you sandbagged your current client to score a job with OC. So, make sure you paper the hell out of everything and where possible leave any decisions to others on your team

You just found the position. There is no actual discussion on this between you and the firm and you are not an official candidate?

Hi all,

Need your advice on a career move. I’m currently working in France as a Security Consultant (Freelance) and got offered a new role as a Security Architect.

The role I’m currently doing in not that technical. But the company hiring me for the Architect one is firing a lot of people right now, earning less too.. what should I go to?
