The place I'm interviewing with is asking for a writing sample. If something is public record, can I use it without my current company's permission?

If you think it would endear you to your former employer ask token permission as long as you're sure they'll probably say yes otherwise I'd say just use it.

Redact the firm and client name.

I have, and it seems to be common practice in my practice area. For context, I am a patent attorney. When I’ve interviewed at places, they’ve asked me to direct them to patents or published patent applications that I’ve written, which are identified by patent numbers or publication numbers, respectively. Enough places have made this request that it seems to be pretty noncontroversial.

I'm in trademark so I think it'd be similar. Thank you!

Yes. It’s public

At what point during the interview process should you raise potential concerns of being overqualified for a role? As I got further into the interview process (corporate), have realized the role I’m interviewing for reports through a SM —> director —> SVP. I’m technically a manager in title now, but I report through partners and my clients are all c suite or svp. Seems like a step down in visibility, but don’t want to be presumptuous when I don’t have the job yet.
