Weird. I always got the feeling Boies had 3-4 major offices, and a bunch of little oddball offices to help with MDL. Maybe that's just a mass-mail.


this is not a mass mail. they are doing oci

Do you know if they pay 174K in Vegas? Their NALP indicates they would, but most Vegas firms pay 120-125K. You can buy a mansion in Vegas for 350K.

Also, I'd look in to what Boies does in Vegas. They're not a major player. It's 3 attorneys. They do CJA panel work, and not the big antitrust stuff Boies is famous for. The youngest lawyer there is probably in his late 40s, so it's not like you'll have the social setting you get at most firms. The benefit would be the name and the (assumedly) big paycheck in a cheap market.
