Solo Atty wants to hire me to start in 2021. I was briefly informed how payment would occur - modeled like a less experienced colleague/associate attorney under Solo Atty. // base salary with a portion of what Solo Atty rains // freedom to do other legal work on side solo // cut if I bring in the same type of work into firm. How can I professionally bring up a salary bracket they have in mind? Not sure if Solo Atty and I are thinking of a similar range of pay.

Solos will not be able to pay like BigLaw. Expect this reality. However, talk about it soon with your perspective new employer. Any compensation should be clear and agreed upon well in advance.

I’ve been in the federal consulting space for the past 6 years, with 9+ YOE overall. I’m so burned out from federal consulting. Our clients have such a low bar to clear themselves and are checked out most days. Our work is measured mostly through vanity metrics that don’t consider impact or innovation at all. I’m thinking a jump to commercial consulting could offer a much needed break in both compensation and challenging, meaningful work, but don’t know what firms or roles to target.

I don’t know if this happens in the US but I’m sick and tired of people trying to cheapen our profession.

It is what it is, if you want a cheaper attorney for your company (which in the long run may be more expensive) go for it 🤷🏽‍♂️.
