POLL: NY White Collar - which firm?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Sep 13, 2017 8:29 pm

I am a CCN student with offers from five different NY firms. I am mostly interested in White Collar work. Any votes/comments are very much appreciated in aiding in my decision. Is there a big difference in terms of quality of work/exit options amongst my selections, or should I feel complete liberty to go to the place where I feel the best fit? Thanks!

SDNY drools over PW, DPW and Debevoise.

But for white collar, and generally, SullCrom seems to be your safest bet.

S&C, Debevoise are a bit ahead all things equal, the others are defensible if you have a reason to prefer them. You can't go too wrong. I am skeptical of claims that SDNY or anyone else really has an institutional preference for any of these firms over another. What will matter is if you work with the right partners, and any of these firms will have partners with great networks in the government.

I will say that if you're anything less than 100 percent sure about white collar, you should cross off Akin. It isn't nearly as strong across the board as the others.

To echo the others, S&C and Debevoise have the strongest white collar groups of your options. That said, I would choose Debevoise for fit reasons, but that's up to you.
