How to Exit Your Firm With Grace
Stephen Seckler at Counsel to Counsel points to his colleague Carey Bertolet's article about quitting with grace. Seckler says the article is helpful for associates at large firms who hope some day to build their own practice at a smaller firm.
"Building your relationships with partners and associates while you are at a large firm is probably the most important thing you can do for your career in the long run," he says. "Partners at large firms can become excellent referral sources for clients who cannot afford large firm fees. They can also become referral sources for conflicts work. If your goal is to go in-house someday, these individuals can also be an important source of information about companies that need in-house counsel."
