"Big Law attorneys are notably unhappier than most other lawyers, for a variety of reasons," a recent Harvard Business Review article states (https://hbr.org/2015/08/law-firms-grueling-hours-are-turning-defectors-into-competitors).

Fortunately, a variety of "New Law" firms have arisen, that offer alternatives that "hard-bake work-life balance into the business model," says the HBR piece (https://hbr.org/2015/08/law-firms-grueling-hours-are-turning-defectors-into-competitors) based on a an extensive new study (http://worklifelaw.org/new-models-report/) from the Center for WorkLife Law.

These various models, including:

• Accordion Companies

• Boutique Firms

• Law & Business Advice Companies

• Secondment Firms

• Virtual Firms

have something for nearly anyone's work style--and lifestyle.

What's it like to work as an attorney in one of these new firm types?

Hear from BigLaw refugees who have made the leap.
