What kind of contact to maintain as an incoming associate

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Jun 12, 2016 1:52 am

I'm an incoming associate at a small southern office of a big firm. I generally err on the side of not bothering anyone ever. So I haven't been, say, emailing to check in with the partners in my practice group or associates, etc. Is that something I should be doing? I figure they're too busy to pretend to give a shit, so I don't make them. Please tell me whether I'm appropriately accounting for my burgers.

I've been checking in with a few associates that I bonded with over the summer, but haven't bothered anyone beside that.

NBD to check in if you have a legitimate question; if you're just checking in because you're neurotic, then take a breath and go back to bar prep.
