The last time we checked in with our friends at K&L Gates, they were busy infecting each other with swine flu. But now we’re wondering if K&L Gates is about to catch a different kind of sickness. A tipster reports:
[S]o we’re having a firm-wide associates meeting on the 18th people (i.e., me) are getting nervous have you heard anything?
Gosh, why is everybody always so pessimistic? You’re a Biglaw associate. Your firm is having a big meeting. What could possibly go wrong? They probably will be announcing a fabulous bonus payment. Maybe even a raise or a big time merger that will vault K&L Gates into even more prestigious air.
Sorry, I just wanted to see what it would have been like if Above the Law existed in 2004.
Still, even though we’re living through a dark age, there is no reason to be terrified of the K&L Gates meeting. It *is* bonus time. More importantly, no law firm is going to fire people on December 18th, a week before Christmas. I mean, if the meeting was on December 17th, I’d say you are totally screwed. But on the 18th? You’re golden.
