Problems and Pitfalls to Switching Firms: An Interview with Adam S. Weiss

Cynthia Sharp

Adam S. Weiss is the author of The Lateral Lawyer™: Opportunities and Pitfalls for the Law Firm Partner Switching Firms.

 

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.
