yes but looking for information beyond the rankings-- especially since I have heard that Vault rankings are mostly for NYC based transactional work. Looking specifically for DC here

Ropes is a private equity and M & A powerhouse; haven't heard as much about Goodwin on the transactional side

Neither firm is going to have much in the way of ordinary transactional work in DC. Go to their websites and search for attorneys by location. Both are pretty small in DC. Ropes, for instance, only has 12 DC partners.
