Woukd you consider it a red flag to get an offer after only 1 interview with 2 founding partners? Or is that probably just a reflection of a busy lit firm with a full trial calendar in this current climate?

I would say it’s a reflection of a firm culture where only those two partners’ opinions matter on things and nobody else’s. Without more context to work off of that would probably be concerning to me.

Similar to what happened to me, and it was not an issue at all. I’m happy where I am

I have now adopted the position to treat this as a red flag. They should give you the opportunity to interview/meet with another associate or someone at your level. In today’s market, you’re interviewing them just as much as they are you. Your questions to the founding partners will be entirely different than the questions you’d ask their associate

Associate 2 nailed this. I am in-house and currently being recruited to join another company. During the recruitment process I requested to meet with the other lawyers on the team as well as the key business leaders I would support in the business. I didn’t do this in my current role and it was too late to find out my clients were a bit challenging to work with.

This happened to me and it has worked out well, so far. I interviewed with the chair of the group during my initial interview and was pretty much told I had the job. I was then invited for an informal “meet the team” at their offices where I met the other partners and asked a few questions but there wasn’t any actual interviewing going on from their end.

No red flags.

People are busy, especially at smaller firms. We used to do round 1, then round 2 that involved partner, associates, senior partner meeting. Last 3 lateral hires, we knew we liked their resumes before the interview. myself and another junior partner would interview via zoom. If we liked the candidate, our senior partner joined that same interview, spoke with the candidate and offers went out.

Now, if you want to talk to associates, feel free to ask. They like you enough to make the offer, they will likely accommodate.

I bailed on AM100 for this. They were recruiting me to a very niche practice group and I wanted to meet people in other offices. They kept telling me to focus on the local office (that didn’t have anyone in my field). Keep in mind though that small firms are different. They’re often run by a few people — for better or for worse. But every firm I’ve worked with gave me full access to anyone I wanted to speak with and told those people to give the good, bad and ugly.

I am in a small firm with 3 equity partners. We would never do this - after the 3 of us determine we like someone we always have them interview with others in the firm so others can give us their view and the interviwee can ask questions of associates and staff. Also I want to know a new person is going to treat everyone in the firm - from owners to staff - respectfully and professionally.

I'd like to weigh the pros and cons of this.
- Is there a disadvantage for clerkships?
- Will I have to catch up on a gazillion CLEs or just the ones from the current year (the balance for which I'll be active)?

Would like to get some input!
