  1. We've all heard about the ICE condo nightmare...do you guys have any insight on good condos, or ones to avoid? Thanks!
  2. I'm a second year associate. The partner I work for is getting older. I'm not sure when she plans on retiring and this is something that we've never spoken about. 100% of my work comes from this partner. My practice group is quite broad but I havent done any work for the other partners. What happens to me when she retires? Would I just start working for one of the other partners? Or would I have to start looking for a job elsewhere?
  3. Hi friends, its me OP. This thread has just gotten out of control. It's clear that the discussion shouldnt be a fight about who the seven sisters are - instead, I was looking for an insight into daily life at the firms I listed. If anyone still has input on this, I'd appreciate it
  4. Hi! Does anyone have insight into the headings at a firm's Iridium timekeeper overview? (i.e.: What the "Hours billed YTD, Billable Hours YTD, work realization, billed realization, fees worked YTD, fees billed YTD mean, and what is the difference between them)? The Iridium webpage doesnt help. Thank you!
  5. Hi!, I am thinking of applying to work at one of the seven sisters in commercial litigation, and move from a much smaller firm. Can anyone provide any insight into the hours that young associates currently fill at Fasken, BLG, Dentons, and Torys (what time do you guys generally log on and log off/day )? Also, I tried finding the salaries by year for these firms, but havent been able to so if anyone could post the links to previous discussions on this or contribute, I'd appreciate it!
  6. General lit, mid sized firm in toronto!
  7. Thanks guys! This is really helpful. I didnt mean to sound whiny, because I know as a first year, your job is to tough it out, be concise, and adapt. I was just wondering whether the disorganized nature of the partner was something thats typical. Im from a mid-sized firm.
  8. What is a typical bonus? When are bonuses given (December? January?) and how do firms decide how much to give a person?
  9. Hi guys, I'm in my first year of practice and work for a partner in litigation. I find the job quite stressful- everyday, I am getting assignments done, sending it to the Partner with no response, and then she calls me back like hours later without warning asking to revise the assignment. I understand she's busy, but she doesnt set up times to review stuff, and just bombards me at her will. Also, sometimes I will send her an email, she wont read it thoroughly, and gets mad that I didnt resolve something when I drew it to her attention in that email. I'm just wondering if this is normal? Is this how you guys work from home? I find it really difficult and it drives my anxiety up knowing that any minute I can expect a call about a document, but I don't know when that call will come. How are things at other firms? Is this just the nature of the practice? Any insight would be appreciated!
  10. I am currently articling and a lot of my friends are clerking next year, or from my understanding, the year after. I thought that you can only clerk the year you are technically supposed to be doing your articles. Is this the case or can you clerk anytime? Thanks!
  11. My plan was to live with my parents until I finished articling and then put a down payment on a condo as an investment the minute i get hireback..i'm not confident that i'll get hired back but with the recent crisis, i'm not sure what my best move is. Should I buy now when my articling term ends ? Wait longer until the market crashes (or perhaps does not crash)? Just looking for some thoughts here!
