Fenwick & West

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 31, 2012 1:10 pm

Has anyone had luck with Fenwick & West this summer? I have heard they are very selective.

What would you choose if you had an offer from Wilson Sonsini, Fenwick & West, and Cooley?

I wouldn't consider Fenwick very selective, at least not in comparison to some of the boutiques in CA. Their callback median at lower T14s seems to hover around median.

All 3 do similar work for similar clients. I'd personally pick between the 3 based on fit.

There are def some people with offers, at least from my school. I've heard people there are really uptight. A friend of mine used to work there and absolutely hated it. That's just him though. He stopped biglaw all together because it wasn't for him.

I didn't find the attorneys there uptight. They weren't social butterflies or anything so if you want to bro out then it probably isn't the place for you, but they seemed like normal (albeit slightly nerdy) people.

Does anyone know the turnaround time from callback to offers for Fenwick?
