Talk about how you feed off the energy of dynamic, sometimes quickly changing deals. When I split between lit and corp sections this summer, that seemed to be one of corporate's main concerns: who could handle/would want to put up with the often hectic schedules involved with transactional work.

Talk about your interest in understanding the business of your clients.
Talk about how corporate work is win-win, in that you have to work with opposing counsel at the end of the day. Similarly, talk about how corporate work is constructive in that you are helping to build something.

If you are interested in a specific part of corporate practice and the firm does that work, definitely talk about that.
