I much prefer med mal. Cases are interesting and sophisticated. My understanding of MVA work is that it is very repetitive and monotonous - opposite of med mal work.


Can confirm

I did exactly this and med mal is much more interesting and less monotonous

I am interviewing for a healthcare/med mal position. Requires 183 hours per month. Is that normal?

Depends on what you consider low paying. And when I say 100 range I mean it could be anywhere from 100-140 for a second year with experience. It really depends on the firm.

Can anyone recommend books they’ve found helpful for L&E matters, privacy matters, product matters, or marketing/advertising matters?

V. annoyed by Milbank's and Cravath's bonus numbers. Our bill rates went up this year- bonuses should as well. We're potentially getting lower total comp, esp without 2018's summer bonuses. Not happy.


To all the plaintiff personal injury attorneys: Do you have a bonus incentive and how is it structured? Also, please include your base if you don't mind. Thank you!


I am considering switching practice areas. I currently practice in personal injury litigation on the defense side. I have been in the PI practice in some way, shape or form for the last 9 years. However, I think it’s time for a change for me. I have always found trust and estate work to be interesting and would like to transition into that area of practice, on both the litigation and planning end of it. I am looking for guidance as to how to switch over. Any thoughts would be appreciated.


Currently, I am a partner at a LATAM boutique firm and we are interested in working with US companies that come to do business here.
What would be the best way to advertise/make ourselves known to them?
I believe we offer attractive services (corporate and employment law) and both my partner and I are bilingual. My partner is an LLM from an ivy league school.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance fellow colleagues.


This is the first year I'm eligible (tenure-wise) to be put up for partner. I've done everything I can do to position myself but it may not happen, atleast not this year. I fear that would make me very bitter and cause me to look elsewhere (for context, I've worked here since graduating law school). Any one dealt with this?

How do my fellow litigators deal with hearings that don’t go so well? Whether you fumble over your words, don’t make all the points you wanted to make, or the judge is annoyed and/or gives a bad ruling, etc. I just had a hearing this morning where the judge granted my motion but only after acting annoyed and coming very close to denying it. Now I am replaying in my head what I could’ve done differently and kind of beating myself up. Does this happen to any anyone else?


I work with a junior partner who’s a total asshole (to me, staff, opposing counsel, everyone). Any advice on A) avoiding him, and/or B) making sure he doesn’t make me look bad to all those people too?


For those of you who stuck it out with Big Law partners who were bullies and had tiny client books until you found another opportunity how did you do it? Completed 1.5 years, COVID has made getting hired difficult in my country, any tips on how to not have a complete breakdown? (Quitting without another job is unfortunately not an option)


It seems partners are much more flexible with associates who have kids than with those who don’t. If it’s okay for my colleague with a kid to leave at 5 pm and log on later, why isn’t that the same for me (no kids)? My obligations might be different, but I still have a life and want to be able to do certain things, like catch that evening workout class or cook dinner for my partner. As you can probably tell, my firm is operating 100% in person. There is no point here — I’m just whining.


Securities Law Transition - I’m 3 years out of law school and work for the State prosecutor, but I used to clerk at the SEC and want to transition back to securities. Any recommendations on how to do that?
The goal would be to try to get a job at the SEC.


Do you ever get to a point where talking to opposing counsel, taking depositions, or appearing in court doesn’t terrify you? I’m about a year and a half in and I have all my own cases in my new job. I constantly second guess myself and avoid responding to counsel when they call or email until I talk to another attorney in my office to run my thoughts by someone. I have multiple litigation cases where depos are upcoming. When does the nervousness end?

Other than higher pay (I didn’t become a lawyer to get rich 🤣) what is the benefit of working for BigLaw, or private practice in general? As a government lawyer, I make 6 figures, have excellent benefits, no billable hours requirements, more time off than I know what to do with (including mental health days), a pension, a 401(K), option to chose whether to WFH or not, no weekend work, no working before 8am or after 5pm. It seems like so many lawyers in private practice are unhappy.


For those 2-3 year associates that have transitioned from a litigation to transactional practice, can you provide any tips? Particularly when lateraling to a new firm in a transactional group. I can see a lot of benefits of the lit experience but wondering how others have handled it.
