Has anyone switched from a transactional practice to regulatory/litigation? Would love to hear about your experience. I’m a third year biglaw finance associate in NYC, but realized that my dream job would be working for the government doing some sort of financial or commercial regulatory/enforcement position. My mentor suggested going to a small boutique firm that does that type of work and eventually move to a government role. Is this a crazy idea? Welcome any thoughts!
