The Standard in Attorney Search and Placement
We regularly read and hear that "jobs for life" are disappearing, to be replaced by a pattern of consecutive jobs and unpredictable career dislocations. When the time comes to face such a change on a personal level, these statistics take on a whole new meaning. READ MORE >
Over the past seven, turning eight, months of 2008, I have noticed an odd ''happening'' on the East Coast. My recognition of this event, or chain of events, started slowly with The Wall Street Journal at 6:30 a.m. over morning coffee. It increased rhythm and size with The New York Times on the way to the subway. Tripped me up as I headed toward my train with AMNew York. And fully blew me away on the weekends with U.S. News & World Report. It was the recognition of all that is bad for i-bankers — Merrill Lynch, Bear Stearns, rumors of Lehman Brothers — and how such i-bankers expect to survive the market........with nothing being written to address those in the legal profession. Mind you, New York City is a finance-driven metropolis; thus, newspapers' focus on the demise of i-banking jobs and the struggle of i-bankers, in general, is not surprising. What is surprising, however, is the dearth of front page news over the last few months, addressing those in the legal profession. Don't we count? Aren't Big Firm layoffs relevant to the world? Isn't the loss of associate, partner, and counsel jobs an important sign of the weakening economy? Where are the self-help articles for lawyers in The Wall Street Journal? Yes, attorneys make a good paycheck, but i-bankers make more — how come there is no pity for the lawyer? In a nod to M. Night Shyamalan, has nature turned against us too—and how come nobody cares? Apparently, it seems to be very ''right now'' to write about i-banks, i-bankers, and related matters, but articles directed at attorneys remain a ''specialized'' topic reserved for Abovethelaw.com and other such legal-directed publications.

There is no denying the national mood has shifted towards the dark side. It is impossible to escape the reports of natural disasters, global warming, the energy crisis, the housing slump, and the lives lost and forever changed by war. READ MORE >
