after the first 20 i cant imagine the lottery mattering (all firms are NY unless otherwise noted)
Some of these choices seem pretty odd...for example, you have Alston & Bird, Brown Rudnick and Seward & Kissel, but have left out Fried Frank.
Also, I would probably add some of the major NYC shops - Kramer Levin, Kaye Scholer, Proskauer and even Hogan.
At the very least, you should take a look at the Chambers rankings and start researching which firms have strong NY transactional practices. Some on your list just don't seem to fit with what you want (Alston & Bird jumps out at me).
yea i see what you mean, the firms you mentioned were mostly on there b/c they are less selective and i was trying to mix up more selective firms with easier ones
