Anybody heard from them yet?


They posted on our Symplicity a while ago and then reposted a couple weeks ago. Seems kind of tough to find the exact right match/fit for the job.


This has been online for months. Anyone else know of any jobs.

Nope. I assume they picked off some people trading up and that was that.

Nah, they were still looking in late December, but obviously weren't going to get back to anyone until the new year.

PW phone interview sometime during the first/second week of January, callback very recently. Partner said they're looking for a few people who've had SAs. Think they are also currently interviewing LLMs for the corporate group.

HR from Paul Weiss contacted me (and some classmates) regarding interview within a couple days after submitting application materials. We're all people who need to change markets or practice group (i.e., did some transactional work at 2L firm that does mostly litigation). I've been really impressed by the firm so far, hope it works out.

I see. Did you apply before or after the New Year...(applied after)

I got the confirmation email, but that's about it. I guess I should not get my hopes up.

Any idea if they're still looking? I somehow missed this on this thread but after a no offer, would that look better or worse than an LLM?...

They were looking at my T-14 in July, and apparently made a new resume collect at T-6 in December/January. I have a feeling they are being super-selective but I guess you miss nothing by sending your resume.
