Finding Jobs Where There Are No Job Openings

By Harrison Barnes  |  Dated: 04-17-2014


I’m a businessperson. As a businessperson, I find I get a lot of phone calls from private equity companies and so forth throughout the day. I enjoy getting these phone calls, not necessarily because I’m looking for their investment, because it can come with a lot of strings attached. Rather, I’m interested in learning about their perspective of business. They tend to call about the businesses I’m running that are hot at the moment and doing well, where the revenue’s increasing.

People in the investment banking business and private equity business are trained as a general matter to go after and learn about industries that are on an upswing.

An example would be Link Exchange, which was founded by the guy who founded Zappos. A p...

How to answer the “what do you want to make?” question
Dated: 04-14-2014

A number of my partner-level and counsel-level candidates loathe the “What do you want to make?” question. Associates at large firms typically don’t have to worry about this issue because of the lockstep compensation. Like many types of negotiation, I believe the best advice is to never throw out the first number. So how do […]

Frivolous Lawsuits — Rule 11 Frivolous Lawsuits — Rule 11


Although lawyers should consider all possible claims when preparing a complaint, they are forbidden from bringing "frivolous" or unmeritorious claims. Such claims can arise if an attorney fails to confirm information supplied by a client and prepares a complaint based on erroneous information. An attorney that assists a party in bringing a lawsuit simply to generate fees or to maliciously harm, harass, or intimidate his opponent, this violates several ethical rules. Attorneys are also prohibited from preparing claims that are unwarranted under existing law unless they can make a good faith argument that the law should be changed.
