Texas firms selectivity for laterals

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jul 10, 2012 10:03 pm

Especially curious about Vinson Elkins and Baker Botts. Schools, grades, previous experience (i.e are they biased against people from other secondary markets)?

Do grades really matter that much for laterals?

Sounds like you're still in law school. Either way, caliber of initial firm matters most.

Are firms in Texas familiar with the "caliber" of firms in markets that aren't NYC, DC, Chicago, or California?
