Any recommendations on resigning?  If I go work for a competitor should I and do I have to say so during my resignation?

Your letter should state you are leaving according to "protocol" and you are only taking your client's "birthday" info, you don't anticipate any "issues" and your clients can reach you at ABC Firm. Should also indicate you do not waive your right of arbitration should any problems arise and a name, address and phone number for your new firms legal counsel.

hand your manager a 2 sentence resignation letter.

 
"I am resigning, and leaving according to protocol"
 
"I am moving to XYZ firm"
 
I REALLY wanted to tell my manager to go fuck his mother but my new boss explained to me that a smooth and quiet resignation means zero problems.

Do a "Richard Nixon" resignation letter.  You can Google it.  At the bottom of the page, include your new contact information.  If clients ask of your whereabouts, and your former firm has the information, it looks very bad for them to lie about it.

You dont want to say i have my clients "Birthday Information" DOB's are a violation of Protocol.



If you are going to a competitor they should provide outside council that will craft your resignation letter and advise you on the protocol, I believe protocol includes over 200 firms now

Have the legal counsel at your new firm draft a letter for your signature.
