I know that group is very busy right now, with people working very long hours and weekends. They're also looking to hire more for the IP group. On one hand it's good to know they have work coming in/easy to make billables, but the flip side of course is you can expect to be working a lot.

We should maybe PM, but I'm not sure how to go about it without outing ourselves to the world.

Spoke to them today. Said they are "expecting 3-4" and currently have two offer acceptances.

Considering that the IP lit department only has ~23 attorneys (slightly less than half of which are partners), that's a fairly rapid expansion (almost 15% yearly growth).
