I'm with you. Know of someone with a Hunton Williams Richmond cb, haven't heard of anything else - dings or cb-wise (except earlier in this thread someone mentioned a Cadwalader Charlotte ding). Ughh South is so slow.


I got a cb with Troutman (Richmond). Silence from Hunton (Richmond) and McGuire Woods (Richmond).

Glad to see that I'm not the only one hearing almost nothing. I'm sitting on a Sutherland ATL ding and a Cadwalader Charlotte ding and NOTHING else. A couple firms specifically told me it would be a week or two (i.e. McGuire Richmond: "A week or so," Robinson Bradshaw: "Two weeks, maybe a little sooner," Brooks Pierce: "When we get done doing OCI everywhere"). I'm praying that most of the others take that long and just don't outright say it.

Has anyone received rejections from NYC firms yet? I'm hoping that silence past 48 hours doesn't automatically equal ding, despite the likely irrationality of that hope

Just passing along what I know... Secondary markets I've heard of:
Dings: David Wright Tremaine (Seattle), Baker Hostetler (Cleveland)
CBs: K&L Gates (Pittsburgh), a firm from Rochester, NY that is not Nixon Peabody.

Anyone heard from Nixon Peabody? If we got a softball, does that mean we are getting a CB?
