Like businesses as a whole, law practices come in all manner of sizes, from a solo shop all the way up through a 3,000+ attorney global mega firm, and everywhere in between. Many attorneys express a preference on general firm size in a lateral job search, because they have an impression that a particular size means particular things in terms of the firm culture, work opportunities, work-life balance, and overall fit. That can certainly all be true, but depending on what factor is driving that preference (e.g., a desire for collegiality, for broad assignment opportunities, for support in client development, etc.), it is a much more complex analysis to put together the right list of target firms than simply going by the overall size of the firm as a whole.
