Thinking about accepting an offer, any downside to Norton Rose?

Depends on the office. They have a pretty dismal offer rate compared to other firms.

Different poster - Absolutely brutal offer rate in TX.

I think the post-merger integration is still a bit rocky. They were the last of the bigtex firms to match 180, and even then seem to have done some weaseling on it. NYC is likely going to take a second fiddle to Houston, and you are going to face lower name recognition than NYC based firms in NYC. Whether it's a good offer to accept may depend on your others.

OP here, I'm considering because they have a strong niche practice group (aviation finance) that I have prior law school experience in and their aviation group wants me. I don't have any offers with firms that have a similar group.

I think that's a very special case. I wouldn't worry so much then. If things go badly for the firm, that's the type of group that would likely leave all together.

Anyone know anything about DC? It's near the top of my wife's list.

From what I've read, lots of new purchases in aviation industry lately, they are going small, and the industry seems to be learning how to adjust to the ups and down of the market. However, isn't that a VERY niche practice area? What are the exit op?

edit: "purchase"

Exit options mostly include aviation leasing companies or private equity firms that invest and lease commercial airplanes. (I worked at one prior to law school). Its a niche area but growing. The company I worked for owned 20 planes 6 years ago and now up to 125, mostly 737s and A320s. (fleets double every 10 years and most big companies are switching over to leasing instead of buying commercial airplanes because its easier to restructure fleet size during down periods.)

Other options include working for shipping companies, major component providers like UTC, Honeywell and GE, and manufactures like boeing.
