1. What inspired you to write The Lateral Lawyer™: Opportunities and Pitfalls for the Law Firm Partner Switching Firms?
In the course of my work with busy law firm partners, I find that most candidates lack time to develop a clear picture of the lateral recruiting process. This unfamiliarity can cost them offers. It can also frustrate the law firms where they interview. Therefore, I wrote The Lateral Lawyer™ with two primary purposes:
- to help law firm partners receive attractive offers to join other firms as lateral recruits and
- to help law firms by preparing partner recruits to act in more informed—and more efficient—ways as candidates.
