Experience at 150 attorney big regional firms major Mkt

Postby objctnyrhnr » Sun Jan 07, 2018 2:59 pm

I was wondering if anybody works or has worked at one of those big regional firms with 150 or 200 attorneys. By some definitions, I suppose these would be on the cusp of biglaw, paying maybe 40k off biglaw market value.

My questions include, but are not limited to, what does a junior litigation associate do? What does a mid level litigation associate do? How did you feel your firm was viewed by biglaw peers in the major market? How were exit options; specifically, did you ever try to lateral to biglaw from there? If so, do you feel that you were hurt by maybe arguable relatively lower prestige than a national firm? Could this be made up for by better experience as a junior associate? Are there circumstances that might warrant taking an offer at one of these over biglaw?

Thanks in advance
