But I also definitely plan on applying to New York/Texas/Chicago. Think I should maintain the same interest in regulatory work for all those markets? Surely there is regulatory work outside DC, albeit less. I have been clicking attorney profiles on sites of my target firms in some of those non-DC markets I mentioned. Think that is a good way to judge what an office's strengths are? Because if you just click on the firm website, it says they are full service and do everything. Chambers and Partners has seemed instructive, but I don't want to roll into an interview with a Dallas office acting gung ho about regulatory work to be told they don't do it.
Also, big thank you to some of the rising 3Ls and alums. You guys have been great in this thread and last years. It really helps at thise stressful time.
There is much less regulatory work outside of D.C. Most firms have a homepage for each office. Chambers also does regional rankings. If you're interviewing for a certain office, you can take a look at the partners in that office and get a sense of what they do.
