Moving to Canada. The firm has an office where I’m moving and I’ve been on matters where knowing Canadian law is an asset.

Are you asking about moving to a different city in another country in which your firm has an office or are you saying you want to just live in a different country and be remote (not tied to an office)?

More info: My firm has an office in the city and country I’ll be living in but technically the the firms in different countries are distinct entities. Also, im moving to Canada so similar legal landscape. I think I can pitch getting barred in Canada as well and doing a combined US/Canada specialty (which makes sense for the type of work I do).

Doubtful. Big law Associates in Canada usually make half of what we make

NDAs for Nannies? I was wondering how everyone who is doing some work from home during covid handles in-house caregivers? Obviously we all take all steps to protect confidential information and realistically a caregiver isn't going to be exposed to anything we do, but does anyone require an NDA just to be on the safe side? (I dont have an in home caregiver yet, but just thinking about it.)
