sup, I work at a non-NYC QE office. I imagine the thing that differentiates our case portfolio is more plaintiff-side work in the big cases than other big law litigation groups. no idea about reputation in NYC. for AUSA, probably less than a place that focuses really heavily on white-collar. I think our DC office meets that bill, but I'm not sure that our NYC one does. peer firms? I don't know, other big litigation shops, I guess. GL.

I work at a NYC biglaw firm. Quinn has a rep as hard-charging. Associates seem to be working pretty demanding hours there even by NYC biglaw standards. They do a lot of general commercial work but they are also one of the few biglaw firms that do what I call "institutional plaintiff's" work - representing big investment firms or pension funds in massive securities litigations where they'll be opposite a S+C/DPW/Skadden type firm. I know they had quite a practice representing RMBS trustees or insurers in litigations against the big banks related to the financial crisis, for example.

The other large aspect of NYC litigation practice at the biglaw level is investigations work, but I do not know if Quinn does a lot of that. You should find out, as the experience of being a generalist lit associate is very different if you are at a firm that does mostly litigation as opposed to a mix of litigation/investigations.
