Entering into corporate transactional work.

Postby summeriffic » Sun Jun 19, 2011 7:29 pm

I am a current 0L and I would like to get advice on which areas of corporate law are less competitive to enter right out of law school and which areas prefer experience before entering in. All advice is welcomed, thanks! :D
1. M&A
2. Financial Institutions Litigation & Regulation
3. Business restructuring and reorganization
4. Antitrust and Competition Law
5. Banking and Finance
6. Capital Markets
7. Securities Litigation and SEC enforcement

If, based on your prior posts, you are going to Fordham and hoping to get into NYC biglaw, this is not something you should be thinking about. Many of the NYC biglaw corporate practices have junior associates rotate around for a year or two before they are assigned/pick a practice group. No one group is more "competitive" than any other, though obviously some firms do more of one type of corporate work than others.
