Egad (again)!

Just found out another shareholder is leaving the firm today. That's seven attorneys I can think of in the last 12 months. Scarier by the day.

Are the partners who are leaving starting other firms? or joining other firms? or going inhouse? What's the reason for the exodus?

All of the above except inhouse. I just think the firm is struggling. Two left in January to start their own because as junior shareholders, they felt they weren't paid enough. I don't know where today's guy is going. Last month was one of those rainmaker types who moves around periodically to maximize the benefits of joining a new firm.

I think bankruptcy law is the place to be right now.
