I feel fairly certain I will focus on recruiting lawyers in much the same way I focused on coaching lawyers. Since I haven’t coached associates recently, I suspect I will rarely help associates find a new firm. But, if you are a regular reader and you want my help, contact me, let me get to know you, and if I can help, I will try my best.
