How is Covington not a complete no-brainer here?
Because most of the people posting on here have never been in a position to choose between a V5 and a top DC firm. Things look different from up close than from far away. Many of the postings / votes on here seem to be based purely on Vault rankings. I could probably put a poll up that said Wachtell versus SullCrom for general corporate / non-M&A practice and Wachtell would win because people can't look past minor differences in rankings.
