Lol at some of the paranoia here.

U give the firm's way too much credit. BTW There's no such thing as a superb info sharing network across the firms working to blacklist TC breakers. Heck some of these HR departments can't even sort out their s**t within their own department.

The only thing you may be risking is pissing off the partner in whose team you are going, really. But if it's a bigger firm hiring by department as a pool, then you're just an unknown entity. Chill.

Hello,

I haven't seen many responses to this question so i thought i'd give you my two cents worth.

I moved in-house after 2 years of practice and i've been in-house for a year plus now, so i'm at PQE 3+. My annual is now at 98k including bonus. I'll probably hit 100k in the next year or so.

Benefits are great and work life balance is even better. I can literally count with one hand the number of times i've stayed in the office past 6pm in the year+ i've worked with this company. Health, dental and insurance are also beyond generous (and extended to cover spouse and children, if it matters).

If you are at a big4 or international firm, this will most definitely be a pay cut. No question about it.

I advice you to consider carefully before taking the leap in house. If money is something that is extremely important to you, this may not be the route to take. I don't mean this in a judgmental way but more like if i were the sole breadwinner and had 4 kids to raise, i would not consider this option until very much later in my career (like when i have enough to pay off all my kids' uni tuition).

On the other hand, if you want a short break from life or to settle down and spend more time with your children, this is actually a pretty good option.

The down side is that work can be really boring at times. Going from practice to in-house is akin to your brain being on ten thousand cans of red bull to suddenly going back to normal again.

Happy to take questions!

Fully agreed. To add, the risk of pissing off the partner is dismissively low. Not everyone are on good terms with each other. The partner in firm A could be an ex-spouse of the partner in firm B. Or perhaps competing for business. Or perhaps bad blood during university.

You can’t be so unlucky to go to firm A where the partner is a spouse of the partner in firm B.
Life doesn’t work like that.

For what’s its worth, I know of a friend in law who has said he hates his ex (who is in law too) and he is going to take her down and the current bf (i.e. guy who stole his gf). Childish as it may sound but this friend is probably one of the top lawyers around and it’s possible he may just do that (in future). So yeah this is just one example but it shows you not everyone are good and chummy with each other. So don’t overthink just switch your tc!!

Why people expect lawyers to write perfect English in an informal setting?
So you mean lawyers have to talk to their family (wife and children) in some pompous sounding English and qualify everything they say?

Three of the world’s most high-impact fields — law, medicine, and biosciences — come together in Stanford Law’s JD/MD program.

Stanford is one of just a handful of universities with top-ranked schools of both law and medicine as well as a robust program in biosciences. A university-wide tradition of encouraging and nurturing innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration — along with a location in Silicon Valley, with its thriving biotech and medtech industries — makes Stanford a particularly welcoming home for work that merges these three dynamic disciplines.

A JD/MD degree is not for everyone. Although overlapping classes can be used to reduce seven years of study (four for an MD, three for a JD) to around six, both programs provide intense challenges. The results, however, are an unparalleled immersion in law, medicine, and biosciences; credibility in all three fields; and the ability to work at their intersection. A JD/MD may be particularly useful for people seeking to work in health law, health policy, biotechnology, or bioethics; in academia, government, or the private sector.

Students must apply to and be admitted by both JD and MD programs separately. After admission, law school and medical school advisors help students plan a schedule that makes the joint program workable.
