Hello everyone! I am currently a state civil attorney but want to pivot to in-house in the future. However, I have been told by a few attorneys that staying at my state job will make it more difficult to go in-house. Would you guys agree with that? Should I try to go private first and then in-house? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!

My first week in-house as a seasoned professional in a specialized area of law, learning that we have a totally unnecessary process in place, which was set up by my boss, a European attorney allegedly well versed in our specialized area of law. How do I delicately inform that “the process you set up and team you hired to do X is based on a misunderstanding of the law. You don’t have to do X. You can do Y instead, which is what everyone else does, it’s easy and free & doesn’t require a team.”

12 YOE & seeking first in-house role. Apps have been mostly ignored with a few interviews. Company is finally showing interest - 3000 employees, small legal team, I’d be the 3rd atty. I asked around this company and haven’t heard great things.
Is it better to get into an in-house role (ANY in-house role) and then try to lateral somewhere else, or just wait for a better opportunity? Worried w my YOE it’ll be hard for me to find the right fit, and that having some in-house experience will help.
I went through 5 rounds of interviews for an in-house position and received an email from the recruiter asking to speak with me. I was super excited thinking I was going to get an offer only to have received a rejection that could’ve been done via email. I appreciate that she made the effort to call but it also made the rejection that much more painful because I was fully expecting an offer, plus I had to block off time in my schedule and wait for her to call.
Which FAANG has the best WLB for its in house counsel? I’ve heard Amazon is basically just big law hours. I’ve also heard Google attorneys similarly work a ton. Any of them offer close to a 9-5 MF job?

Hello everyone, I know someone looking for some perspective, so I’m taking a poll. Would you:
1) take a pay cut to transition from litigation (insurance defense) to a transactional firm; or
2) take a $70k pay increase to stay in litigation but move to a complex litigation firm handling various kinds of defense matters.

Non-solicits are extremely common. Not sure why it would be an antitrust issue unless you’re in an extremely niche area (in which case, it might still be enforceable, so long as it’s not a blanket no hire).
Ah I can’t speak to the school context. But, based on a skim sounds like the concern is entire non-solicit agreements, not a provision in the context of a deal where that’s not the primary purpose. You mentioned customer agreement in your post, so sounds like the context is different. Presumably your employees only other choice isn’t to go to this customer, whereas teachers would probably have to move if they were restricted from teaching at nearby schools.
If you’re otherwise ok with the provision, no harm with putting it in. The odds of a court ever seeing it are slim to none, and if it ends up being unenforceable, you’re in the exact same boat had you not put it in at all.
Generally, no concerns when dealing with customers or vendors.
The antitrust concerns only apply if you are dealing with a direct competitor and if the non-solicit is part of a anticompetitive agreement (e.g., a standalone no poach agreement or market share allocation).
"Thus, according to the court, to the extent that the agreements were employed to allocate a market, the agreements may be deemed per se unlawful. In contrast, if non-solicitation provisions are ancillary to a pro-competitive collaborative venture, the “rule of reason” would apply. Under the “rule of reason” standard, the trier of fact considers all of the circumstances surrounding the agreement in deciding whether the agreement is an unreasonable restraint on competition."
No problem. I had never heard of this, but it makes total sense. Learn something new every day. 🙂
When customers are insistent we limit the time period (1 year, 1 year after project close etc) who it applies to (only those directly involved in the project) and do not limit indirect solicitation or the ability to hire when the candidates seek us out on their own.
Thank you for your response. Super helpful!

AGC1 - you sound like a real gem. It costs you literally nothing to keep scrolling if you have nothing to contribute. Have a great weekend and I truly hope you rethink your perspective on what this or any place (social media or otherwise) can offer. Why be condescending and insufferable when you can choose to put out into the world what you hope to receive?
You generally can’t agree with your competitors that you won’t hire each other’s employees. It’s very common for a company to have some type of a non-compete/non-solicit for their own employees.
I think I'm still missing the point here. A standalone agreement not to hire each others employees and nothing more would be illegal (naked non-poach ag.). But my understanding is that your client's agreement is not naked, correct?
Bahh. Bad hypothetical. They wouldn't do that.
