Departure Memo of the Day: Boyz To Traurig

Hey girl, did you like being a Biglaw associate? I know you did. But now it's time to make sweet love to a new career.

We’re taking a break from covering the “nothing to see here” capital call from Greenberg Traurig to cover people fleeing Greenberg Traurig.

I’m just kidding. We’ve got a fun departure memo from an associate who happens to be from Greenberg, but I don’t think this woman’s departure has anything to do with the firm’s financial health. Instead, she’s just pursuing new opportunities.

And it looks like she’ll be leaving with fond memories of her time at Greenberg. We know that from her choice of ’90s R&B bands that she used to herald her leaving….

The associate is leaving Greenberg’s New York office. Her farewell email closes with an impressive flourish:

“I’ve learned . . . that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. -Gilda Radner

After today, I can be reached at [redacted].

And, with that, I leave you with this touching song by Boyz II Men, “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday”: http://youtu.be/8b3mftcV0dY

You can see her full departure memo on the next page. She’s certainly leaving the law to do something with a lot more career security than law.

So… what song would you use to quit your law firm? You know, if you could be honest and weren’t worried about burning any bridges.

If we’re keeping it in the 90s, I think “Fell on Black Days” pretty much sums up my entire Biglaw experience:

I sure didn’t mind the change.

Check out the full memo on the next page….
