Jenner Chi v. DLA Piper Chi

Help please! I loved both firms when I visited. I am pretty sure I want to litigate so Jenner seems like a great choice, but I like the international feel of DLA.

Summered at another DLA office in 2012 but got a chance to spend some time in the Chicago office and hung out with a couple of Chicago attorneys. Everybody I met there was very nice; plus their physical space is amazing (and I heard they're moving to an even swankier building soon). The Chicago folks seemed to do a large variety of work for a bunch of longtime clients, which makes sense given that Chicago was a prominent fixture in the old Piper Rudnick. The partner from my office (a lit guy) had extremely high praise for the lawyers he worked with often in that office, and pointed out a few rising-star associates in particular.

On the other hand, that partner also happened to be working with Jenner as co-counsel on another matter, and he spoke about them with a great deal of respect. They have a great rep and apparently are a pleasure to work with. IIRC they have a bit of a "nerdy" reputation compared to a place like DLA, but you probably got a sense of the culture when you interviewed. Congrats on having this choice -- both seem like great firms.
