As a Fourth-year Attorney Looking for a New Job, Should I Put Together a Business Plan or is It Too Premature?

By
Recruiter, BCG Attorney Search
Question: I'm a fourth year corporate attorney and I have just started searching for a new job because my current firm does not support my efforts in business development. I have some small clients that have been with me for a year (but nothing substantial) and potential new clients in the pipelines. Should I put together a business plan or is it too premature?
