I graduated from a T1 school in 2008 and I've been working in small firm litigation ever since. I actually try cases, I'm not doing the big firm document review.
I'm thinking seriously about getting some transactional experience going, because I can't see myself in litigation for much longer. The constant adversarial role, your life revolving around the docket, the mindless depositions and pre-trial motion hearings are becoming a bore.
BTW, I have some knowledge of the transactional side, because prior to law school I worked as a paralegal at a mid-sized real estate transaction firm.
I was thinking of attempting a joint LLM/MBA if that is even possible. Would it make a difference? Long term, I would like to work for a mid-sized to large firm in the transactional group and eventually move to a much smaller boutique transactional firm.
