Abstract: The article discusses the reasons why larger law firms are losing 30, 40 or 50 percent of associates after rendering their services for three or four years. Some of the reasons include some associates had no intention of staying, they just wanted to pay off their debts in law school, others needed to follow a spouse, and some are attracted with higher-paying jobs in other industries.
