I bet nobody here has done this but on the off chance: 

Has anyone lateraled to NY/Cal into a litigation group or know someone who has? I’m not planning on leaving Toronto but I’d be an idiot not to look into it a bit in this climate.

I've noticed some people in my network doing this in the last 3-4 months but I don't have much to offer with respect to the mechanics of making it happen.

I've tried. Litigation lateralling wasn't happening when I tried. Lit departments weren't that busy unfortunately.

I had two offers from the NY offices of V20 firms back in the spring, all of which were initiated through my network. I also had one California interview lined up before I pulled out.

The market is definitely slower for litigation though, in that they’re not desperate for bodies the way they are for corporate lawyers.

Did you end up staying in Canada? The other barrier is that I imagine just fucking hating American litigation.

My current practice (to the extent someone so junior can have a "practice") is primarily international arbitration, so there's no difference on either side of the border for me, besides quantum.
