Do you want to sue banks wearing sandals or defend them wearing suits?
Thoughts on what sandals to pair with a charcoal suit?

This. I could see choosing Quinn LA over Cravath but the New York office is. . . special. . .

Sure. Sorry for being so vague. The Quinn NY office seemed, by far, the most intense place I looked at during OCI. Even the Quinn LA people made subtle comments about the intensity of their NY colleagues. This, paired with their legendary cheapness, made it seem like an incredibly difficult place to work. That might be tolerable if they paid Susman or Wacthtell money, but they don't. These observations accord with what I've heard about Quinn NY from practicing lawyers. Cravath is, by all accounts, a very demanding place to work, but at least they ramp up the perks and it seemed like their junior associates had a small sliver of life outside of Cravath.

Quinn also has, IMHO, a business model that is only questionably sustainable, which was my biggest knock against them at OCI (their LA office actually seemed like a relatively tolerable place to work otherwise).

What about quality of work?
