Making a lateral move to another law firm is a lot like having an affair.

You meet clandestinely. And if the stars align and you feel sure the match is right, you face the difficult task of telling your partner—or partners, as the case may be—that it’s over. Then you get down to the business of splitting assets.

As in affairs of the heart, switching alliances can be done gracefully or sloppily, in worst cases sparking publicity, lawsuits and rancor.

Thad Kodish, Managing Principal of Fish’s Atlanta office, describes the steps a partner takes after deciding to see what is out there as “tricky” and refers to the first meeting as an “initial flirtation.”

Read more about what Thad has to say about “the lateral affair” and why it’s more than a casual romance.
