Experienced Attorneys

For an experienced attorney, making the decision to leave his or her current law firm is challenging. The actual or perceived potential for disruption in client relationships, financial well-being, and personal relationships leads most to consider such a move only after long and thoughtful deliberation.

Once the decision to leave has been made, however, finding the right opportunity with the right firm can be equally challenging. Each attorney’s needs are different, the capabilities and opportunities offered by each firm vary, and it is often difficult to get the true measure of a firm before really “living” there.
