Greenberg Traurig or Chadbourne and Parke

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Sep 28, 2012 3:33 pm

Both NY. I am interested primarily in litigation, possibly in real estate, but I am not entirely sure. Looking for people's opinions with regard to anything about these two firms.

When did you hear from Greenberg? A giant that is not doing so well is what I have heard about the firm. Additionally, if you look on TLS there is talk about a certain partner that is a notorious meany, but I am willing to bet tons of these stories are exaggerated. Personally, I like Greenberg a lot, knowing a few of their attorneys from non-NYC offices, but I recognize their reputation is not great. Also recent capital call.

Looking at the Chambers rankings... for your stated interests.

Greenberg: Band 1 General Commercial Litigation: Highly Regarded, Band 1 Real Estate: Mainly Dirt
Chadbourne: Band 3 (same as above), Not ranked in real estate

The partner notorious partner that came over is in M&A. That beings said, fit is more important.

Without checking, I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and say Greenberg is not, in fact, Band 1 in NY
Checked: It's band 1 for the "Highly Regarded" Band. So this is correct (Chadbourne is in fact Band 3 for that).

Litigation: General Commercial: Highly Regarded: New York
Band 1
Allen & Overy LLP
Greenberg Traurig, LLP
O'Melveny & [deleted] LLP

It would be band five objectively. Chambers has it listed by "The elite" bands 1-4, followed by "Highly regarded" bands 1-3. So yes and no.
