Transactional work at the V10 I'm guessing?

At what point did you know you were going for in-house?

How did you land the job? Past client?

Yes, I actually started out in corporate and moved over to real estate when I was at the firm.

At what point did you know you were going for in-house?

Probably sometime during my 3rd year I knew I wasn't shooting for partner-track. Was partly a personal/lifestyle decision, as well as seeing a number of qualified, deserving associates who busted their ass for 7+ years get passed over for partnership.

How did you land the job? Past client?


Actually got cold called from a recruiter in the company. Wasn't actively looking to leave firm, but opportunity came up, so I went for it.

If you're still around, what's work life balance like in house? How important were your paper credentials vs experience/interviewing in getting the job?

(I'm anon because current employer might not care to see me ask these questions)

What type of work do you do on a day to day basis (just negotiate commercial/license agreeements all day)? How did you evaluate the inhouse position (i.e., what was important to you and did you correctly weigh these criteria priorities looking back now)? Are you happy with your decison in terms of lifestyle, interesting work, career opportunities and pay?

I'm not sure I'm cutout for partner but I love deal work. I'm fearful that I will be bored going inhouse, though I suspect this will not be the case.

How/what are the exit opportunities for real estate? Will be entering real estate practice at a V10 and am slightly concerned about the potentially limited exit options as compared to general corporate practice.
