For Employers and Law Schools
You are thinking about letting an Associate or Partner go. Before you pay for outplacement counseling to help the departing person move on, ask yourself whether you took steps to help that person succeed before making the costly and difficult decision to part ways professionally. If not, what message is sent to others at the Firm and how might it impact the morale and productivity of those you do want to retain?
Under Advisement provides coaching to the Associate or Partner to enhance their performance.
Once you have an offer or multiple opportunities to decide amongst, we will analyze the pros, cons, and trade-offs for choosing your next move. You may need advice on negotiating your salary (and future raises), professional development opportunities, benefits, and schedule. Together we will address these matters to move you forward in the best posture.
