Not to sound like a douche but I'm looking for the firms that can give me the best exist options going into OCI. I've heard that the Vault list isn't very accurate for firm prestige because there are firms like Munger and Irell that are more selective than Skadden for example yet they are ranked no where near the top 10. I don't plan on working at biglaw for long. I just want the firm that will look the nicest on the resume so I can get a cushy in house job at a fortune 500 company or a top job in government. Thanks guys.

The 2011 Vault Law 100 is here! This year, more than 15,000 law associates rated law firms on a scale of 1 to 10 based on prestige. (Associates were not allowed to rate their own firms, and were asked only to rate firms with which they were familiar.)

Just google "asbestos litigators." The first ten non-sponsored search results are the most prestigious.
