Recently, I accepted an offer to lateral and while awaiting conflict clearance, another firm reached out to set up an interview. I confirmed interest but didn’t hear back from the new firm re interview dates until yesterday. In the meantime, conflicts cleared on original offer/acceptance, and I’ve set a start date with the first firm. Any recommendations?

Not a good look to reject an offer after accepting. That firm may have rejected another promising candidate because you said yes. Having said that, you have to do what’s best for you and your career, so no harm is finding out what Firm 2 has to offer. But I’d think hard about the pros and cons before rejecting Firm 1.

Go through with the interview.

Do you definitely prefer the firm that just reached out to the one you’re going to?

In that case, I would politely decline the interview. Congratulations on your new position! Celebrate!

Following. Did you make a decision?

I respectfully declined the interview. It would’ve taken an outrageous offer for me to renege on my acceptance, and I just didn’t see that happening.
