THE definitive list of "Work Hard/ Play Hard" firms/groups

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jul 13, 2012 8:41 pm

For people with solid grades from top schools looking at the V20 or so firms, which ones are notoriously fratty and work hard/ play hard. I definitely want to lock down a slot in one of these groups. Practicing law is too solitary of a job not to want to bro out with coworkers after work. Nomsayin? So far I've heard:

Skadden- M&A
Cahill Gordon- Leveraged Finance
Morrison & Foerster- Litigation (SF Office)
Kirkland - not sure what groups (NYC office only)


others?

I always figured that practicing law is too solitary a job to want to bro out with coworkers after work.

They fucking STYLE on this city."
