Lateral Help

Postby baskinriches » Sun Nov 24, 2013 9:30 pm

Hi Everyone. I would really appreciate some guidance on the following. I am currently in a third year associate at a regional mid-sized firm, practicing employment litigation (defense side) (big secondary market). I want to know what kind of lateral options I have. There are a lot of associates from out firm who lateral to "biglaw" firms but I have one big program: crappy law school grades (tier 2). My understanding is that this is a very big limitation. Anyway to overcome this? What are my future options? Are there certain biglaw firms that will overlook grades? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Get your own clients, or a nice book of business. Otherwise, you're SOL.
