Since I’ve gotten to my firm, 4 attorneys have left. They’re lateraling to local firms that pay basically what my current firm pays. Is that a sign that I should leave as well?

I am in a similar situation and took it as a huge red flag, followed quickly by other red flags — I am now about to accept an offer else where. I think it’s a huge red flag when people are leaving, especially a smaller office or your specific group, and requires you to look into it more. Maybe it’s nothing, but it’s probably something.


How big is your firm? What level are the attorneys? It’s a hot lateral market so they might be lateraling for $$$$ signing bonuses too, not necessarily to get away from your firm.


If you’re comfortable, I’d wait a week (or a month) after they leave, and then ask. I’ve done it at my (big law) firm. Asking people when they’re still employed gets you the canned (appropriate) answers, but once they’re gone you can see whether there’s dirt or not.


Depends on size of firm. 4/10=bad. 4/1000=good


Yes that's a bad sign.

Do you like the people and the work?

What have been the most impactful books you’ve read?


Book recommendations threads! Include title with a brief summary: ‘The Philosopher and the Wolf’ by Mark Rowlands. A book about connections beyond humans. Not just with animals, but the world. He does a phenomenal job of wrapping philosophical thoughts and theories into every day life. Highly recommend for those who love the outdoors, have a dog, or want a new outlook on life.
