Ask A Legal Recruiter

What sort of compensation should you expect for lateraling to a firm in another market ASAP (moving costs? Signing bonus (esp if you’ll be missing out on your EOY bonus)? Payment for rent in former city if you can’t break your lease? Anything else?) not sure what’s normal

Def moving costs and bonus true-up. Lease mitigation might be harder but you can ask.

Is this a big law lateral? What class year are you?

Hi! I am a legal recruiter and typically, I like to outline anything a candidate might be leaving on the table and lump it into a signing bonus. When possible, I provide justification so that it strengthens the request. For example, if you are on track to earn your year-end hours bonus, I would let the firm know that so they are aware of it (“Bob’s firm guarantees year end bonuses based upon meeting 1950 hours and Bob is on pace to hit this.”). I would do the same thing with breaking a lease (“If you would like Bob to start by X date, he will need to break his lease which requires him paying $X.”), and anything else that might be relevant.

How does it work when you speak to the hiring manager ahead of application? I have been connected to the hiring manager via a friend and they want to chat. Does that mean I should get an interview when I actually apply via my friend? Thanks

I called my client on teams after confirming on chat that she is ok to talk. I heard very low giggles as though she was trying to control, i felt like she was making out or her husband was playing with her. Felt very unprofessional, what would you have done? What is the right thing to do? Both funny and serious replies are welcome.

Is it better to front load 401k or do it evenly throughout all year? Basically with current living situation aka living with parents I can max out 401k by April. My expenses should hopefully go up after April when things get back to semi normal. Will it make sense to just max out the 401(k) early or is it better to DCA throughout year in case of major pullbacks?
