Still in school, so take this with a grain of salt:
I've spoken with many corp. attorneys working elsewhere in Seattle and they consider K&L to be a top dog for large, general corporate work (not as specialized as WSGR/Fenwick). In terms of the overall health of K&L, I wouldn't worry as much about the Seattle office. When it comes time for K&L to "trim the fat" as they would say, it wouldn't start in one of the more consistently profitable and rapidly growing markets. They also seem to be consistent in 100% offering recently, which is more common given the contracted sizes of Seattle summer classes.
With that being said, starting salary is 127.5 with bonuses @ 1950. I would be more concerned about the likelihood of working much longer hours for a minimal bump in pay compared to other firms, but exit options and ymmv.
