The job market is still bonkers for job seekers — not so much for employers.
But, hey: If you’re looking for a job, or to switch jobs, you’ve got more viable options than probably ever before. And that’s even true of law firm partners who would make a lateral transition.
That’s why we brought Anna Sanders of Voy Legal onto the Non-Eventcast — to talk about why partners would swap law firms and how they can get what they want from a new role.
Anna starts by discussing why a partner would consider a move (4:31). Anna then addresses how moving partners can manage issues related to potential conflicts of interest between the new and old firm (7:50).
Anna also talked over situations where an entire practice group may disengage and port itself over to a new firm (10:39). Next, Anna covers how legal recruiters can help partners looking for a new law firm to present themselves in the best possible light (14:39).
Finally, Anna discusses how partners can use social media to better promote themselves for a potential move (23:22), as well as how changing technology can impact a partner move, including moving from one platform (you’re used to) to another (you’re not) in a new role (27:23).
If you’re a law firm partner who’s looking to be a law firm partner at a new law firm, we’ve got a legal recruiter to provide you with some of her best-kept secrets. All you have to do is listen to this episode!
