Q: I am a 2007 graduate of a second-tier law school in New York. Since graduation, I have been working in the M&A department of a BigLaw Firm, doing due diligence. It’s a non-practicing position and I only do a small slice of what junior associates do. I have interviewed for and expect to receive an offer for the position of Director, Legal & Business Affairs of a mobile services company.

Considering the state of the legal market and my relative inexperience, this job seems like a great opportunity. That said, I have a few concerns about the position. My first concern has to do with the company’s business model. The company is acting within the bounds of the few existing regulations and, seemingly, in line with industry practice, but has had some consumer complaints and faced litigation. I am concerned about any professional repercussions in joining this company.
