Thanks! Thatís true. Think once I tender Iím in a better position to not care and try to chill for the notice period. Will hang on in the meantime!

Iím ignoring the other troll posts.

Hi OP, I was in a similar position as you a couple months back.

I was a 2/3 PQE (depending on how you count it) practising at a Tier 1 disputes practice. I was extremely stressed and unhappy. I tendered in the midst of the pandemic, and used my 2 months' notice to search for a new job. Then I realised that the job market isn't as bad as I thought. I attended several interviews and got an offer.

Most people were shocked that I tendered without an offer (probably thought that I was foolish, idk), but who is to judge? Your mental health comes first. I honestly told prospective employers that disputes is not what I want to continue doing, and the good ones understood where I am coming from.

One caveat though: make sure you have sufficient financial resources to keep yourself afloat in the event that you do not find something in the 3-month period.

Thanks for your advice! Appreciate you sharing your experience. As a litigation lawyer Iím also wondering what kind of roles I can go into. Did you stay in private practice, go in house or join the government?

I am lucky because I got to work on non-contentious / corporate matters as well, which I leveraged during my job search for in-house and private practice (corporate) roles.

Don't worry too much though, I think many companies appreciate candidates having dispute resolution background since you may be expected to manage external counsel when disputes arise. Also, I know several people with pure disputes background who successfully made the switch to corp or went in-house. But I am not sure whether payouts accompanied such moves.

Good luck!

The difference in tone between millenials and boomers is stark. Thanks for your input!

Hi OP, thanks for this. Grateful if you could share what your pay is like before and after the move.

is that all you care about. money isn't everything. this person made one of the best decisions of his/her life and obviously without caring about pay

i left private practice, went in house at the 4 to 6 pqe range, been here about 1 year and earning way more than i could imagine back in practice at this age

lol are you retarded you say in your first paragraph that "money isn't everything" then you go on to immediately invalidate that in the next paragraph by saying going inhouse nets you more money
