If you had to reduce each market to one practice area

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jan 27, 2014 7:16 pm

Have interview with market that I don't have ties with and honestly, I don't really know what the market is "known for" (i.e. "Go to Chicago if you want to practice x."). I know that such reductive thinking may not be helpful...but if you had to...

NY: Corporate/Banking
DC: Regulatory
SF: IP
Chicago: ?
LA: ?

NY: Corporate and all transactional related work (e.g., tax)
DC: Regulatory
SF: IP
Chicago: essentially New York with less deal flow, smaller deals, fewer cross-border transactions
LA: entertainment
Boston: Corporate

It's really hard to reduce New York to just one practice area because you will find New York firms at the top of most practice areas: securities litigation (Paul Weiss, S&C, Cravath, etc.), financial institutions regulation (S&C, Davis Polk, etc.), anti-trust (Skadden, S&C, Cravath, etc.), etc.
