Want a change but recognize it is maybe misguided
What kind of "change" are you looking for?
If a small-town where you're from, or different type of law altogether, go for it whenever you like.
If another big firm, at least 2 years is the bare minimum, but even then there should be a "reason".
You're not going to move from Skadden to Simpson without a good reason why. They'll just assume you can't hack it there, so probably won't hack it here
Thanks. At a firm with a very strong culture. Love the work, less fond of the atmosphere. Guess I need to suck it up for another couple of years before I can try to move.
I would be surprised if anyone's "very strong culture" is so distinct as to set them truly apart, but feel free to PM me
