I don't get bragging about letting all associates run cases. Um, that is essentially malpractice.

I was fortunate enough to witness the 60 yr old boomer partners of my firm get fuckin schooled at claim construction by a team of lawyers that had a age spread of like 25-29

and then blame getting schooled on the 7th year who got to argue 1 throwaway term for the first time in his career

Does anyone have any info whether Williams & Connolly will move its base salaries up now that its compensation falls well below the other firms' "base + bonus"? They may still be competitive for 1st and second years, but mid levels seem to be lagging now. If someone is going to sign on, it would bne nice to know what the total package will be.

Or whether clerkship signing bonuses at W&C will rise for the same reason? For example Kellogg is over 150 now for top COA clerks and WC is still below 100.

Bueller? Anyone?

Lit firms aren't facing the same sort of lateral pressure that GP firms do. I bet they don't do shit.
