Author’s note: Two of the most common questions I have received in the past few months have been: “Should I be more open to at least considering a move to another law firm, especially in the midst of this recession?” and, “If I do decide to explore a move, what factors should I examine when looking at other firms?”

In a previous column, we addressed the first question. There are a plethora of issues related to question two. This month, we will focus on only four of those factors, with special attention being paid to recession-related points.
