Austin Commute

It ultimately depends on where you are really going. If you are commuting to some place on 360 or 620 (in the former high tech corridor), it wouldn't be too terrible. If you are commuting truly downtown, you will be stuck in traffic on Mo-Pac or 360 that will make you want to kill yourself every single morning.
That's what I was afraid of. Oh well. So much for the outdoor dining area overlooking the lake. Too bad - it was very lairlike.

Thanks for the reply.

It's been so very long

Does anyone have any information at all on this. I got an e-mail from the Texas Lawyer with this blurb, and I'm not a subscriber, so I wasn't able to get to the article.
  • Thompson & Knight Raises
    Base Salaries for Associates
    In the first significant associate pay hike in Texas since the heady days of 2000, Thompson & Knight will raise associate base salaries in January, a move that might signal the start of another paycheck bonanza for associates. Full story

Anyone know of a firm willing to match?

Other board says they jacked up the billable requirements and cut the discretionary bonuses, so I'm not sure its a net improvement.

Thanks. I glanced at that discussion a little. I wonder if anyone else is going to match.

A&K's Enron Settlement

Here's a Chronicle article discussing the A&K settlemene and what might happen to V&E. Poorly written, but lawyers probably aren't the intended audience.
