If someone wants to do white-collar work, what SF (by SF, I mean Bay Area: SF, SJ, Palo Alto) firms should I be looking at? I have heard Gibson Dunn and the above-mentioned Keker and Van Nest, but am only beginning my research. I guess relatedly while I want SF, I want to do white-collar more, so does it make sense to primarily target SF or should I be looking at other markets (such as NY or DC)?
I am as of this moment top 5% BMVPDCNG with really really strong ties to SF. Thanks for your (or anyone who can share) help!
Good to see this thread resurface. I'm in a similar position to this anon, top 5% at T-14 and great ties to SF. I'm not into white collar, but the strong lit places I'm looking are
I think other places that would be cool are Keker and Munger. Altshuler is more employment work and, I think, often plaintiffs'. Not white collar as far as I know, but I don't know much. Someone above said Kirkland SF doesn't do litigation and that's ENTIRELY WRONG. Half of their practice is lit; within that, half is IP lit, half general. I think my favorite so far has been Quinn, but I'm worried about their sweat shop reputation. Anyone know which one of these firms will WORK YOU THE HARDEST? I'm not afraid of hard work, but don't want to be taken advantage of.
Oh, one firm that has been missing from this thread is FARELLA, BRAUN + MARTEL, one of the top litigation firms in the area, but a smaller/regional firm.
I'd be interested to hear others' thoughts on these firms.
