NLJ 250 firms are defined as: The NLJ 250 includes the 250 largest law firms headquartered in the United States. This is measured by the firm-reported annual average number of full-time and full-time equivalent attorneys working at the firm, in any office, in 2011.
To list some: this includes traditional TX firms like V&E, BB, FJ, Akin Gump, Locke Lord, HayBoo, Bracewell, Andrews Kurth, Thompson and Knight, Jackson Walker,Gardere, Winstead, and Strasburger.
Not to mention satellite TX offices for firms (some with big TX offices) like Sidley Austin, Simpson Thatcher, Patton Boggs, Weil, Jones Day, Morgan Lewis, Cadwalader, Skadden, Hunton & Williams, Baker Donelson etc.
21.47% is a good percentage, but it is not close to the Cornells of the law school world.
Pretty sure the figure being pulled out of the ass is the "Michigan top 1/3 > UT top 10%" and the "Vanderbilt > UT for Texas" comments. The former is unlikely true and the latter is definitely not true.
Idk, I know someone top 1/3 at Michigan and he absolutely cleaned house with TX firms. I'm sure top 10% at UT would do the same and get more firms at OCI.
