Looking to lateral to another firm. I’m a 3rd year at a mid size firm. Any advice/insight on what a firm requires when applying/interviewing. I’m concerned about law school grades as I was around 3.2 gpa, but I have a ton of litigation experience running cases the last three years. Any insight appreciated.

Depends on the type of firm. Why do you want to move and what sort of a firm do you have in mind joining?

It's going to depend on the firm, what type of litigation you do, and what market you're in. Make sure to highlight if you have any first chair experience and don't put your GPA on your resume (yes, they will see it anyway, but no need to highlight it).

A 3.2 probably won’t get you biglaw for litigation unless you were at a T6 or something unless it’s a specialized field (IP, employment, etc.). General lit, nearly impossible.

AA1, very true. I’d never tell someone NOT to apply. I’d just tell them to be realistic.

What is a “long range effective tax rate”? I was asked in an interview what I would need to create a long range ETR schedule if I was in the role. I know how to calculate ETR and assumed “long range” meant forecasted, so I basically described that you would need a forecasted pre tax PTBI, book-to-tax adjustments and the anticipated taxes paid. How bad did I miss this question? The interviewer looked at me like I had 2 heads. 🤣🤣🤣
