Lieff, Robbins Geller, Cochett -- for plaintiffs' side securities work

These are the firms that come to mind immediately for me, too, when I think "SF Plaintiffs" but I know Lieff is highly grades selective and I'm pretty sure the other two are as well. It's worth giving these guys a shot but I'd also try to extend your search to smaller firms. Unfortunately I don't know the names of those firms, but maybe good places to look would be SF legal publications. This document has a decent list, but I have this weird recollection that some of those firms aren't really plaintiffs firms. Worth looking at though:

Cotchett is not grade conscious. Nor is Robbins Geller. Leiff maybe in comparison to Cotchett and Robbins Geller, but in practice it's not that hard to get a job there -- assuming they are hiring, which is the biggest barrier with them.

The only real grade conscious firm on the "left" side of the V in SF is probably Altshuler Berzon.

Feel free to PM if you want more info.

Anon who said they were grade conscious.

You're right re Cotchett and RG, thanks for correcting me. I think you underestimate the difficulty of getting a job at Lieff - not everybody has your (substantial) experience, 168.

Dechert also does a lot of plaintiff work in CA... and a fair amount of troll.
