Both offers in NYC. Interested in corporate work (LL strength) and finance (CC strength).
They seem similar in almost every regard (SA offer rates; SA class size; NYC QOL; secondment policies; etc), have both gone through rather bloody restructurings recently, and trade top spots in the global M&A deal volume/deal value league tables. Is there anything besides 'feel' to go on here?

In general, CC and A&O are considered the "pairs", culturally and in terms of strengths. LL and FF are the other pair. I think CC is slightly better known for its transactional work, but LL seems a little more international (in that it can place you in pretty much any office when you start as an associate, although you can rank preferences). I know CC has a rotation program for your first 18 months, which many people like, dunno about Links. I would go with the one where you like the culture better. LL is a little bit more casual, I think, but some people I know have called it fratty. On the other hand, others have called CC stiff. So it's your call.
