You interviewed with litigation but you want to know how the corporate practice feels? Dechert is litigation heavy, that's where you're starting your career most likely

Yeah, they didn't ask me before hand about what practice areas I'm interested in.

They have a band 1 highly regarded corporate/m&a practice.

+1. their corporate practice is decent, but they're known as a "bet-the-company"-type litigation firm. lot's of high stakes litigation and work for large companies.
