Would a successful law firm disregard every opportunity in a location to disregard it as another attorney's territory? Or would they go at it anyway for the bounds of monopoly at least?? Confused!?

Has anyone here pushed backed and asked managers/HR to be exempt from return to office? I'm in NYC and don't feel safe taking public transportation. My commute is 90mins each way. I was hired in 2020, been working fully remote + got promoted recently. I really don't need to be in office to be effective!

Hello , How long does it take to receive written offer from salesforce after the verbal offer? I was given very positive feedback after final round of interview with salesforce , now I have been waiting for 3 weeks and still haven’t got written offer yet. Both the recruiter and HM have told me that they are serious and keen to hire me. But it is delayed due to internal business review . They are working on it. Anyone was in the similar situation and eventually got hired after how many weeks?

Pregnant wife is having small portion meals lately, so i asked why she is eating less than usual. She read somewhere that eating too much can lead to oversized baby, making the delivery more painful, so it looks like she may be controlling the portion because of this. Is not eating enough a cause for concern?

So I am finishing a masters degree in international commercial law. I have my LLB. I have almost completed my licence. I really do not look like a lawyer. I can adapt. I have neck tattoos and full body pretty much and hands and fingers too.What are the chances of being hired? And before you say no chance I’m aware how conservative our industry is I would be right down the middle politically. If I’m good and have a good cv/resume can I get into a good law firm? Why are we so backward or anti ink?

I’m an associate at a boutique law firm working on complex litigation and regulatory matters. I’ve worked at the same firm as a summer associate and the last three years directly after graduation. I’m worried that I’m not getting enough “practical” experience. I haven’t taken a deposition, only attended two oral arguments, and tend to write parts of briefs or motions but never in their entirety. (Continued in comments)
