Question: How Can I Switch to Part Time Status at a Law Firm to Start a Business?
Question: I'm a sixth year associate at a large law firm in New York City. I started working here right out of law school and have built up alot of goodwill. The partners like my work, which I generally find challenging (let's not talk about the hours though : - ). However, I'm also a bit of an entrepreneur and have recently come across a business opportunity that I'd like to pursue. I have money saved up, but probably couldn't afford to leave my job until the business starts to bring in money (married, 3 kids, mortgage). My question is whether and how I should approach the partners about possibly working part time so that I can launch the business and still earn a part-time salary. Has anyone done this before? I'd appreciate any insights since I'm feeling pretty torn.
