Current Weil/KE restructuring associate here, really not sure where this is coming from. The world of restructuring professionals is a small one and associates at top firms absolutely can and do switch sides regularly.
Does this hold true for associates at Skadden/DPW/CGSH? I'm curious about these top firms with restructuring groups that may not be as well regarded as K&E/Weil.
Go on Linkedin, run an advanced search, and see how many associates you can find. There should be a couple of associates who made such a switch every year.
Have 2 friends at WLRK trying to make the switch to RX and one more trying to switch to M&A at EB/BB, but with no success after months of trying. FWIW.
Would assume banking - EB/BB refers to elite boutique / bulge bracket.
Would also just suggest that at banks across the street, seems like the summer associate offer rate was in the 50-60% range, primarily because of a sudden projected downturn in markets for next year. No need to take a guy whose main skill is negotiating purchase agreements when there are kids who have the proven financial chops who aren't getting jobs.
