should I report my company to the firm?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Apr 24, 2017 4:04 am

I started this Internet-based company before I work for the firm that I got an offer from. The company has nothing to do with the law firm. (Think something like tutor.com)

Should I report my company to the firm? If so, how would the firm react to it? would it be viewed negatively?
I will be working for this company only after work and on the weekends. I have other cofounders who also work part-time.

Are you not listing a company that you started and continue to work for on your resume? I get that it's not legal-related, but...

Anyway, yes, you have to report it for conflict reasons as said above.
