This year I have the opportunity to open it up a bit more.
What do you want to know about law firms?
Payscales, bonuses, average stay time of associates, partnership odds (in the form of a %), exit options, offer rates, strongest practice groups
Look at number of associates and see how much more leveraged NYC firms are than southern ones. The southern ratio is 1:1 and the NYC is more like 10:1
profits per partner is over 5 million at the top NYC firms, they must have so many clients that they cant hire enough associates
PPP in the south is 500k on avg; your chances of making partner at a big southern firm are lik 50%
