Milbank, Clifford Chance, or Curtis

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Sep 11, 2012 10:34 pm

Hi all,

I'm choosing between the above three firms, all in NYC. I'm interested in international work; not really sure if I want to do lit/trans, but I think I would be happy with either (prior experience with both).

Thoughts?

When did you have your CB with Curtis?

Edit: Also, it seemed to me that Curtis is not that international. Yes they have a very international group or two, but the firm as a whole did not necessarily seem any more international than Clifford Chance (magic circle).

Edited edit: I don't know that much about Milbank.

Clifford Chance. Seriously, people voted for Curtis over CC???!?!
Curtis, while a fine law firm, is really not as international as they bill themselves to be. CC is. I think Curtis has unique presence in Central Asia (e.g. Kazakhstan), but unless that's what specifically interests you, you should roll with CC. CC offers you a much much better international experience EVERYWHERE ELSE.

Reputation, prestige, global presence, and types of clients you'd get all point to CC over Curtis imo.
