Tina Solis: Making a Law Firm Move the Smart Way

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Tina Solis discuss:

  • Things to consider when moving firms. 
  • Looking at partnership agreements. 
  • Big picture things to know when making a lateral move. 
  • What law firm managers can be doing better to retain talent and keep relationships when someone has left. 


Key Takeaways:

  • You have an obligation to your clients, not just the other attorneys in your firm. 
  • Timing is essential in preparing for your move. You want to be aware of where you are in the year-end pay cycle. Depending on the timing, it could add to the complexity. 
  • People are leaving a bad culture for the money, but they don’t leave a good culture or team just for money. Culture is becoming more and more important in the legal industry. 
  • When you part amicably, referrals can still come back from those attorneys who do leave.


“If we can keep emotions deescalated, departures tend to go more smoothly for both sides.” —  Tina Solis
