State of Andrews Kurth for SA’s?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Feb 02, 2018 10:08 am

Does anyone have insight into what all these partner departures could mean for SA’s in the near future? I have an offer for the Houston office that I am hesitant about. A great firm in many other aspects, just unsure how this will affect the future of the firm.

I would immediately begin looking around at other options. I have a few friends who already lateralled out and things don't seem to be going well.

From what I know, a potential merger has been reported in the legal press and I think it’s super common for people to leave pre (and post) - happens all the time! I’m glad you have transit info on lateral folks, but I’ve got direct lines of contact with friends who are currently there and they are all planning to stay. In candid talks, they are really excited about what the future holds. I would suggest you reaching out to your contacts there if you are uncertain.

LOL. I have no information about Andrews Kurth but this sounds like it was written by a recruiter as Andrews Kurth. Partner defections and rumors of a firm implosion are never positive. Full stop. The firm may merge, or it may not. Even if there is a merger, consolidation is likely to follow which may result in associates losing their jobs. The OP should look for another job and accept the Andrews Kurth offer only as a last resort.
