Stupid question but is there a bowl for big law partners or just old of counsel like me?

Probably not and for good reason...Unless it's heavily vetted and monitored, it would just turn into associates taking free shots at the "rich, all powerful, but dumb big law partners."

I don't think most partners are willing to deal or put up with that.

Yeah, but there's no clear partner to target

I had a FAANG final round on Monday, and I just got a final round at another company. FAANG is my first choice. I once successfully put pressure on MBB to expedite my process because I had an *offer* from another company, but would it hurt to reach out to my recruiter with something like "I am absolutely confident after my interview with X that if Y offered me this job, I'd 100% accept their offer without hesitation, as long as I receive Y's offer first," if I don't yet have the other offer?

Part of me wants to drop everything, travel and start my own business but idk if that’s the best thing to do amid recession fears… could really use some advice :/

Has anybody on the more junior side asked a new firm to move out of state (where the firm has another office with the same comp) for tax purposes? Still working with the same team in the same office in state one, and okay to fly back once a week even if the “two days in office” become a thing…

Any advice? I got roped into a “deal”/work stream that has lasted for months and months. This is not my group, or even an area of interest for me. I’m very junior and do next to nothing for the work stream, but I don’t want to be caught up in this anymore, because every now and then something comes up and I couldn’t be less qualified to participate. How do I get out?

When to put notice in? Got an in-house offer (yay) in just the right time because I’m absolutely sick of big law. Workstreams are pretty quiet for me (despite reaching out to state I’m available, but atp I don’t really care). I’d like solid time off before the new gig but I also want to get paid for this month since new job isn’t until June and this is a longer month. Thinking of taking impromptu PTO sometime this month (firm has unlimited PTO so I won’t get paid anything either upon departure).
