Chambers has them at Band 1 for IP in Chicago. Do they really have such a good reputation in Chicago?

They do have a good reputation. They are also financially insolvent, had massive layoffs last year, and lost a chunk of their rainmaking partners this year.

Yeah, IP attorneys I've talked to in the region are absolutely positive that the firm will be gone in 5 years, and that the best case scenario is that they get swallowed by a GP firm.
