Are you all able to find someone to marry?
Or just breakup halfway? Even after engagement?

If you have friends, ask them to ask someone who knows. Surely one of them can give insight.

These things (any firm for that matter) should not be put on a public forum. I recommend not going in blind to any firm and asking your friends.

Move inhouse.

Try not to take SSRIs as they may cause ED.

only if both parties are lawyers. pro tip for guys: don't date another lawyer. date a teacher or someone in healthcare, counselling or social work. Much better, trust me. And likely chioer too

What is the current outlook for corp ? Approaching 1PQE soon. Doing general liti, with a bit of corp in a smaller mid-sized firm.

Thinking of moving from liti to corp.

If u want to do corp, better move ASAP. small mid firm doing liti + corp means you're more or less a small firm litigator doing the occasional contract review work. very sub-optimal exit options unless you really want to stay in liti.

need to pivot entirely to corp in a reputable large firm for optimal outcomes. your liti experience for the past year will be disregarded entirely. You'll more or less be regarded as starting from scratch as a corp NQ
