Take Gibson. They're about the same quality and Gibson is much more stable.

Purely on caliber of work and prominence of practice, for corporate, the easy answer is Latham. I cannot give any specific advice about stability because all we know are the firms' pasts, but Latham's NYC class sizes have been pretty small over the last few summers (with the most recent summer being around 25) and all their other class sizes are similarly restrained. Their current leverage is pretty average so it appears they are trying to grow more conservatively (but who knows).
