Got selected in TCS, how much should I ask for package and will they match my offers?

So as someone who is making the most of the sales these days... What are you favorite places to buy suits?
I only like pant-suits (no skirt-suit recs please). I am hourglass-shaped, with big hips + 32DD bust and a small waist, overall a size 4-6. I tend to like skinny pants in a suit. Would love fun color pant-suits (like dark green, etc.)
Thanks for any tips!

I was offered a partnership at a small firm I used to work at before my current also small firm. We had come to terms and I expected to inform my current firm. To my surprise, my current firm made me a significant offer to stay. Not a partnership, but making more money and better benefits. I’m torn because the other firm is under the impression I’m coming in as a partner. But I can’t turn away from the significant offer I have from my current firm, where I enjoy working. Any advice/thoughts?
I need some words of wisdom from this esteemed bowl. I have been an associate for almost 2 years in civil litigation with my bread and butter being family and marital law. I have the drive and desire to operate a solo practice with an emphasis on family law as that is my most comfortable area. I've been loved by all my clients and believe I have the charisma to attract new ones. It's not a matter of if I'll go solo but when. Any advice and/or potential pitfalls of going solo so soon?
Putting in notice today at a very small firm that the owner wished for me to take over one day. It’s time, and it’s complicated, but according to former associates he’s acted completely unreasonable in response to associates leaving. Wish me luck.
Anyone do subscription based pricing? I’ve been seeing this a lot lately, curious if it works?
I believe improving one’s sales conversion rate is something everyone want to improve but no one wants to admit they would like to work it. Funny how lawyers will spend thousands on seminars to improve trial skills. But this topic is not discussed in our profession. I have read books in sales. But am unable to find any for lawyers. I want convert every lead I can. Does anyone have tips, books, cle’s or studied this topic?
Do small firms/boutiques really have better hours than Big Law? A recruiter told me I should still expect to bill 2000 hrs at a boutique, but if that’s the case, why take the pay cut?
How do you keep track of your time when you go solo? Making the transition soon and I'm wondering if I should invest in any specific software.
Is there a general standard of rule of thumb for associate comp outside of biglaw’s fixed scale? E.g., x% of expected billings, or y% of a contingency fee goes to associate bonuses? How do things work at your small-law firm?
Hey solos! Do any of you draft prenups? If so, do you charge a flat fee or retainer? What is your hourly rate?
Considering exiting small practice for a compliance job. My small practice has about 30-40 active cases of a general practice nature and there is only one other attorney here. I am a 5th year.

I have a college student wanting to intern at my new solo firm this summer. I totally can’t afford to pay her, but I also don’t plan on making her “work” but instead will teach her and add value through her internship experience. Is this permissible? Do I need to be cautious for any reason?
For those that have their own firms, do you mind sharing your overall profit for the last couple of years/practice area? I’m trying to decide if I should open up my own shop. Anyone regret starting their own business? Any and all advice greatly appreciated.
Does anyone have an email template they like when making "cold call" introductions to other professionals/potential referral sources?

Small firms in Arkansas (especially rural Arkansas), what would you say is an average salary for a third year associate? Considering asking my boss for a raise, but I don’t want to be out of line.
Does anybody have a resource available for pricing and billing? I am 2 years out of law school, working as a corporate attorney, and wanting to go solo. Ideally, I will take my corporate client with me, but am working to build work on the side during the transition. Also, do you have any recommendations for document preparation? I would like to draft wills, trusts, and other estate planning documents, but would like a resource that has boilerplate provisions to utilize as a reference.
