Friedman Mathis & Gray
Clyde & Co
Hanson Bridgett
Lewis Brisbois
Wood, Smith, Henning & Berman

Sidley Austin

I'm in San Francisco so if you all have suggestions on other firms to consider for litigation please let me know!

Nothing to add, but that is a very random list of firms. Lewis Brisbois and Sidley?

I'm guessing you're looking at Bay Area litigation firms based on this list. I used to work at Ropers (corporate though), so PM me if you want more info. Just curious, what practice area are you currently in?

2013- Yea it's admittedly a little bit of an odd list. SFSpartan is right. I'm looking at Bay Area litigation firms.

I'm a litigation associate who just wrapped up 2nd year and I'm still a generalist for most part. Largely general liability with some business litigation cases and a fair bit of construction defect cases oddly enough.

SFSpartan - Could you send me a message please? The TLS account says I'm too new to start sending direct messages. I'd really appreciate any help and insight on a lateral move in the Bay Area and if you know of ideal firms to go to versus "run away" type firms.
