Unless you had offers from Fitz or Ropes NY, I'd say this is a fairly easy call for Kirkland.

I can understand Quinn and Kirkland, but why Davis Polk? They have only two partners in NYC who officially do "IP litigation," and judging from their profiles, neither of them really do IP litigation.

Kirkland, if you are 100% sure you want to do IP. If you're uncertain, DPW.

No, DPW forecloses the IP option. DPW if you're certain you don't want IP.

DPW does a lot of IP in the Menlo Park office. (And a little in NY.)

Still... do they specialize in IP transactional or IP litigation?

Kirkland. I'm only familiar with their soft IP practice (although I've heard that their hard IP is amazing). They attract some of the best IP lawyers in the nation (Dale Cendali, Claudia Ray, etc.) who do some of the most interesting, high-profile IP litigation (the Harry Potter "Lexicon" case, Dastar, Associated Press v. Shepard Fairey (the Obama Hope Poster), etc.).

They're actually better known for their hard IP (patent) practice. I read about big wins for Apple, Samsung, Intel this year in patent lit matters, for instance.
