Best Wilmington firm?

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Oct 10, 2010 5:30 pm

taking into account compensation, partnership prospects, hours, prestige, culture, etc.

(I'm talking mostly about more local firms, so I'm purposely omitting Skadden)

at an interview, several of the attorneys referred to the big 4 wilmington firms as morris nichols, potter, richards, and young conaway... don't know much beyond that.

I'll be joining you at MNAT, and I'd like to get in touch with you via PM. The PM feature, however, is useless when posting anonymously.

I received an offer from one of the "Big 4." Won't say any more than that, except that I'm leaning heavily towards taking it.

Summered at RLF last year and had a great experience. Chose it over the others, but mostly based on "feel"; happy to take questions if you have any (Happy to speak generally here, more specific answers by PM)

That's quite a conundrum! Did anyone do callbacks with PAC? Offers from PAC? I screened with them months ago and never got a response. Thought that was pretty lame, seeing as how of the other 26 firms I screened with, I got some kind of correspondence (e.g. CB or ding) thereafter. :?



26 huh???? You mean 18?
