encourage her to develop her character, intelligence, etc. and not coast on her looks (which it sounds like you're doing). give her a copy of dorian gray. help her practice a ferocious resting bitch face. and be very careful not to favor her over other children; she's going to get enough undeserved advantages (and some draw backs, which you mention), don't instill inter-sibling resentments. my aunts are the worse for this....always comparing and ranking their daughters' looks out loud.

"Christians" are a disparate group of almost two billion, divided into countless factions. Jewish people are a far smaller minority, making it more important to stick together.

Ha! Go ahead and ask. I'm a traditionalist rather than a revisionist, though.

They're very frequently senior, or have a specialization that doesn't warrant an entire department or attorney on staff. They may be semi-retired attorneys who want to structure their time more on their own terms, or they may be on some kind of sabbatical or leave doing something else but keeping very basic ties with the firm. In general, they are people who are desirable in some way for their long experience or particular expertise in a niche area of the law.

At my father's firm, the "of counsel" attorneys included a former partner who specialized in maritime law who was doing public service work of some kind in another state, a former partner who held dual citizenship and spoke several languages, and when my dad retired, he remained "of counsel" for another dozen years.

What is your exposure if there is an accident? Is the car in your name? who pays the insurance? [ Reply | More ]

This is my only concern. Is it properly insured? What liability do you have? [ Reply | More ]

The car is in her name. Basically, in order to avoid liability, when she started working for us, DH and I put the car in to her name. Our contract stipulates that when she stops working for us she returns the car to us and transfers ownership back to us [ Reply | More ]

Lawyer here. You don't avoid liability by putting the car in here name. Negligent entrustment. [ Reply | More ]

+1 The contract is proof that the car really belongs to you. [ Reply | More ]

Who pays for the car insurance? That might be an issue as you'd need more than regular personal-use insurance, no? [ Reply | More ]

We are in the Hamptons for the summer, and I thought nanny would go to the beach or something on weekends. But instead she parks her car right near the LIRR station and grabs people just as they get off the train and ping uber. Most of the people she are driving are husbands who are taking the train in from Manhattan to get back to families that are out here [ Reply | More ]

Sometimes the nanny picks up guys her own age, basically early twenties groups of guys that have share houses, some of these share houses have thirty people crammed in from what she tells me [ Reply | More ]

If she is the owner of record, why the hell do you care? Do you want the car on weekends so you can drive for Uber instead? [ Reply | More ]

Bullshit. Go find a hobby, drive the car for Uber yourself, or demand a Soprano-like taste from the nanny. [ Reply | More ]

Fine, unless I'd put some kind of cap on the mileage in our work agreement. [ Reply | More ]

She sounds enterprising. More power to her. Better than partying her life away. [ Reply | More ]

I would be fine with it as long as she's not working too much that she's tired on Mondays. [ Reply | More ]

Yes...I employ a nanny but we aren't wealthy enough for such a crazy expense as to allow her to wear out a car or open us to such liability. No one could use corporate car like that and expect it to be ok. Nanny us an employee. [ Reply | More ]

That seems like a lot of extra wear and tear/depreciation on the car. Are you really okay with that? Also, what if all the extra marginal driving means the nanny gets in a car crash that she otherwise wouldn'tve and has to take time off unexpectedly, or worse? This would make me nervous. I'd only really be okay with this if the nanny really buys the car from me for fair market value at the outset, with the stipulation that we'd buy it back at its (depreciated) fair market value when she leaves. Well, actually, I'd still be nervous about the nanny taking herself out of commission with a crash, but I can't tell a grown person what to do with their free time. [ Reply | More ]
