As we head into the year 2000, lateral movement in the legal profession has become the norm. However, prior to 1990, lateral movement was rare among associates and absolutely unheard of among partners; back then, you joined a firm and stayed there until you made partner and retired. If a lateral associate was hired into a firm, it was done very quietly and with only partners involved in the decision. Times have changed — a lot!

The good news is that attorneys now have more options and more choices in the legal profession – similar to professionals in other industries. There is no longer a stigma attached to someone who has moved around in his or her legal career. In fact, associates who have never changed firms are clearly the exception nowadays.
