OMM (LA & CC)
From what I understand Gibson is shooting like gangbusters and OMM and Latham have bounced back financial. I don't know about Sheppard Mullin, but they did upgrade to a suite at my OCI this fall, which they did not have last fall.

Baker Hostetler NY is rumored to have no-offered a number of their NY summer associates.
I know of good associates at Reed Smith DC who struggled to make their hours last year and have heard rumors to try and avoid them if possible.
I also know that Baker Hostetler, especially in NY, is pretty much afloat only because of the fees from the Madoff litigation. Without those fees they would be showing large declines in revenue and I assume the lucrative part of the Madoff litigation is already over.
