Published by the American Bar Association (ABA), The Lateral Lawyer: Opportunities and Pitfalls for the Law Firm Partner Switching Firms explains exactly how you can receive the best possible lateral offers by creating the perfect market: one that makes firms compete for your practice.

Moving from one law firm to another is the most significant career decision an attorney can make. In this tell-all book, seasoned legal recruiter Adam S. Weiss guides law firm partners, and aspiring partners, through the recruiting process.

Using example situations and the experience gained from two decades as a lawyer and legal recruiter, the author addresses the following questions, among many others:

  • Why is it a mistake to play hard-to-get with prospective firms?
  • What do firms mean by “platform” and why should this matter to you?
  • How does working with a recruiter help you maintain a superior negotiating posture?
  • What due diligence information are lateral attorneys asked to furnish?
  • Which four talking points should you always be sure to mention in interviews?
  • What are the top seven questions you will probably be asked in interviews?
  • How do you knock the dreaded question, “What are your weaknesses?” out of the park?
  • What are five safe questions you can ask during interviews?
  • What are the three top interview pitfalls and how can you avoid them?
  • When should you discuss compensation?
  • What five hard questions should you ask only after receiving an offer?

Full of concrete advice and accessible strategies this book is a must-read guide for lateral attorney candidates, hiring partners, firm recruiting staff, and headhunters alike.
