Obviously it's normal to see departures following bonus season and I'm sure this year's departures are exasperated by the pandemic and likely fueled by the hot lateral job market. But I did want to see what y'all are seeing at your firms / groups in terms of attrition. What's considered 'normal'?

We're seeing the same trend in my group where majority of the departures are at the junior level. Has your group made efforts to fill those empty seats?? I know my group is hiring but there's definitely more leaving than coming in
