New staff here. Senior just chucked a pencil against the wall at the client site today in rage, yelling "what the hell man!" because I forgot to follow up with the client about something.

Question about contingency fees (I work in an insurance defense firm and therefore have no idea)- client signs contingency agreement with law firm. Law firm eventually sees case is not going to be a winner in court, and therefore withdraws. Client, on his own, negotiates a settlement. Is prior law firm that withdrew beforehand entitled to fees from the settlement? It’s a first-party property damage case. Thanks in advance!

Does anyone else feel concerned that once the fed raises rates and inflation falls or stagnates, Milbank scale will remain but the current associate’s market will not? The incremental risk of being laid off is not worth an extra $10-20k imo.
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
