How long after the callback did they call you with the offer?

Business casual. My callback confirmation email specifically recommended that.

the most substantial tip i can give: express an interest in patent litigation, or at least willingness. its apparently a touchy issue because some folks want to avoid patent litigation, but get assigned to it anyway. if you want to do patent litigation from the start you will have a leg up.

No kidding. I'm one of the guys who got an offer and can verify it looks like at least 3 this year (one said last year). NALP said they had 12 spots last summer and I was told all got offers this summer, dunno how many. Anyone know their yield?

Another tip: the office is BASICALLY 1/2 IP lit and 1/2 white collar criminal defense. The associates do work with the other offices so do other stuff, but that's what the SF partners mostly do. Just a nice piece of knowledge to have going in.

does anyone have a feeling on what quinn's typical CB: offer ratio is? I know CLS has a record that indicates 75% or so of CBs get an offer, but they seem to be doing a lot of CBs this year.... maybe the office is growing?

Is the LA office also heavily concentrated on patent litigation?

And does anyone know what the size of the LA office's summer class is/how many offers they've already made? I have a CB at the end of September and don't want timing to be an issue...

Far more than six SLS students have SF cbs. Number is probably closer to 10-12.

People who get offers at Quinn also get offers at some of the other elite litigation firms. They aren't all going to accept, though some might split.

Folks that got offers from SF:
Do you guys feel Quinn requires longer hours, as many have said?
Did interviewers ask/hint about this? If so, how would you respond?

I am looking to do IP lit in the SF Bay Area. I interviewed with several firms that have strong IP lit practice groups. I went into my callbacks with the assumption that Quinn required longer hours than everywhere else.

After doing my callbacks, however, I'm not sure that my assumption was correct. It seems like all litigation associates in big law bill north of 2,100 hours. The only exceptions I found were associates that had a hard time finding work because business was slow. Overall, the billable hours expectation at Quinn seemed comparable to that of other big law firms in SF.

And, no, my interviewers at Quinn in SF did not ask or hint about hours. But I met with four associates, and I asked each one what they had billed in the last year. (Answers ranged from 2,100 to 2,350, though one person mentioned that another associate at Quinn had billed 3,000 hours last year.)

interviewers did not/hint ask about this. the only thing close I would think is when they described big/important trials they were working on. I imagine that kind of work goes hand-in-hand with long hours and they are probably looking for candidates that would be excited/motivated by that stuff (someone that doesn't mind putting in extra hours to work on a very prestigious/cutting edge case).
