My personal experience is that DPW and S&C are better than the other two. Both have broad and well-regarded tax practices. Both have banks as cornerstone clients (JP Morgan/Morgan Stanley for DPW, Goldman for S&C).

To my mind, the main differences are cultural and geographical. Geographically, I'd do S&C if you wanted to move downtown or in Brooklyn, while DPW is good for a commute from Westchester. Culturally, DPW is sometimes described as "genteel," which I think is fairly accurate--people are polite and nice, and my impression is that the hours are slightly better than S&C.

Tax at dpw is boring as fuck. Enjoy structured products and shelf takedowns x 10000

Out of these options I'd do s&c

I'd do S&C or Kirkland, depending on the environment you want. Kirkland NY just added Jared Rusman, who was a WLRK partner before he was at Weil.

ETA: I've heard from multiple tax lawyers who are gung-ho about "deals" that DPW focused on financial products and they thought this would be somewhat boring. Definitely nothing wrong with choosing them though. They have smart tax folks.

DPW and S&C both have great tax groups. I would say DPW based on the reputation of the firm in general.
