SA decision - DC offices

Please don't quote.

Choosing between four firms listed in the poll (all DC). Interested primarily in regulatory work but potentially interested in lit.

Hogan is the D.C. powerhouse out of those four and should be great for regulatory work.

Agreed with above poster. If you want general lit though, Kirkland's DC office would be a hell of a place to work too, especially given that Paul Clement and his team came on board.

If you're conservative, Kirkland. If you're not, Hogan.

Sorry, I misread and didn't realize OP had a meaningful preference for regulatory over lit (as opposed to being indifferent between the two). In that case, Hogan. I stand by my assertion that if OP is conservative and interested in lit, the connections that OP can make in the conservative legal world through Paul Clement and the Bancroft people are probably unparalleled.

But you don't actually believe that your average SA / junior associate is going to get meaningful contact w/ Clement & Co., right?
