Informal meetings with Partners

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Sep 07, 2016 8:52 am

Hello all,

I have an informal coffee chat scheduled with an alumn. parter at a v30 satellite office. What kind of questions should I ask? Other than questions about the partner's practice etc. I am trying to make the most of this.


Thanks in advance

So you're in a state where splitting is expected? Is your current SA 100% offer? Are you competitive with the partners firm? Are you interested in his practice?
