BBA Webinar: Should I Stay or Should I Go: Transitioning as a Senior Associate

Wednesday, December 15, 2021 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM


The BBA presents live webinars and virtual events via Zoom. Please register for this program through your BBA account at least two hours before the start time of the program to receive the Zoom webinar link.

If you are a senior associate, what is the next step in your career?  Partnership?  Perhaps.  But the reality for most associates is that they will make at least one move in the first 10 years of practice.  Some associates will make a lateral move to another firm, while others may opt for in-house corporate roles, government agencies or even launching their own firms.

At this session, we will be joined by Stephen Seckler, a lawyer who has been coaching attorneys for over 25 years, and Clancy Galgay, an in-house attorney who has worked at two major firms, a mid-sized firm, and now for a major life sciences company.  The panelists will answer the following questions but come with your own as well:

  • When to stay put and when to make a move, and how best to make that assessment?
  • How to get the most out of your current situation?
  • If you decide to move, how does the second job search differ from a law student job search?
  • How do you make a practice area shift?
  • What are the benefits and drawbacks of using a recruiter vs. going at it alone?
  • How has COVID impacted career planning?

This program will take place via the Zoom webinar format and participants and panelists will not be able to see each other.  This is a great opportunity so ask questions anonymously in the Zoom Q&A.
