Dear [Head of Litigation Department]:
Please accept this letter as formal notification that I am leaving my position with [the Firm] on November 26.
Thank you for the opportunities you have provided me during my time with the Firm. If I may be of any assistance during this transition, please let me know.
Very truly yours,
Friday, November 9, 2007
I tendered my resignation this morning. It was not something I did lightly. There were many good things about my firm, many people especially. There were, of course, other factors that weighed heavily in my decision to leave.
I'm moving on to greener pastures. My start date at my new place of work is December 10. I will be in-house counsel for a big corporation!
