Out of interest, in your opinion, what has been the most successful big law merger? Do you see more mergers coming (maybe transatlantic) in the top end of the market?

I love what I do and where I work - I’ve grown a great network/ reputation throughout the entire company, but it’s getting to that point in my life where we want to build a family. My company offers zero paid leave and has confirmed that policy will stay in place. Not to mention we cannot accumulate PTO and most only get 2-3 weeks off a year AND the company blocked FMLA because it’s owned and operated on tribal land. I’m just not sure if it’s worth seeking new opportunities or sticking it out?

Anyone in BigLaw given critical feedback to a very difficult partner and experienced a successful outcome? For context, there’s a partner (in M&A) who gives cryptic instructions, expects way too much from lawyers, doesn’t like making calls on difficult decisions, is not responsive to clients, etc. The partner is a rainmaker. Is it worth giving this feedback and ask for things to change, or should I just leave lol?

Biglaw has completely shredded my confidence as a lawyer; I lateraled into biglaw from a smaller firm feeling keen and confident with some independent wins under my belt. Worse, it’s not because I’m doing a complicated area of law; it’s because I don’t feel like I fit in socially or tire of expectations that seem frivolous or unrealistic. How do you find yourself again after big law? I don’t even know who I am anymore or what value I bring.
