Finding Firms in Secondary Markets

Postby TTH » Fri Aug 28, 2009 5:06 pm

Is there a good resource online for finding out information on the firms in secondary markets? I can see myself working in Cincinnati or Columbus after law school, due to family ties to the area, and if I don't get into a T20 school and thus have a realistic shot at a major market, I would want to pick a regional school that gets me to those markets. I know the first assumption is "go to OSU or UC," but I'd like to take a look at firms and see where the attorneys working out of the Columbus and Cincinnati offices went to school. Thoughts? Thanks.

Some major firms for Columbus/Cincinnati are:

Jones Day
Frost Brown Todd
Baker & Hostetler
Dinsmore & Shohl
Squire Sanders (be aware that they cancelled their SA program this year)
Taft Stettinius & Hollister
Vorys
Porter Wright
Roetzel & Andress
Bricker & Eckler

There are more, but you can search those on NALP. For many of these firms, you can search for lawyers on their website by office and law school. You can also see where they are going to OCI on NALP. Some firms even give you the composition of their 2009 SA class by school in the recruiting section of their website.
