Assuming we're talking corporate law/litigation in New York, the less clear-cut ones I was wondering about are: Latham, White & Case and Paul Weiss. It seems that 3 years ago a top 1/3 top 10 would have a very good shot at these firms, but I wonder if the trickle-down effect has changed things. Does anyone have any insight (anecdotal or otherwise)?
I don't think Paul Weiss is quite as picky, but I considered including them. Weil is not as picky as you would expect, even with their huge pickup in bankruptcy work. I have no idea why anybody would want to work at Latham or White & Case after the past few years.
