I'd like to accept the offer, clerk, work in DC for a few years, and possibly head back down to Florida. The catch is I'd be interested in regulatory-type work (think Hogan Lovells, Latham type work) and am not sure there is a lateral market for that kind of work in Florida. Would I be able to lateral to Tampa/Orlando/Miami as a fifth or sixth year associate with a clerkship and regulatory work as my experience?

Companies, firms, you name it, in my experience LOVE folks who have been inside the beltway. Whether it's in a member's office, a committee office, or a legal clerkship like you're talking about. Most people work in DC for a few years then go back home (or to another location). To answer your question, I would say you would be able to pull off that lateral move very feasibly FWIW.
Hopefully some more posters will give you some more info. Good luck!
