Tell me about Dorsey & Whitney Costa Mesa?

What are they known for? What is their company culture like? Any other details to watch out for?

Have a screener with them next week. A search through these forums mostly turns up info about Dorsey's Minneapolis office, which I understand is their largest. I've heard the soCal office is mostly IP and corporate, is this accurate?

Unsure about IP, but I know corporate is not big in the Socal office. They're looking for 2 SAs this summer. Litigation seems like a need there. NALP's breakdown of practice areas should be fairly accurate.

Culture and vibe seemed chill with casual fridays and people gone early for 3 day weekends.

Interesting fact: as far as I know, associates who've summered there have all stayed and not left to another firm since.

Good luck!

Has anyone heard from Dorsey this year?
I had a callback from them a few weeks ago but since then…silence.
