Chicago: Jones Day, Latham, or Mayer Brown?

Post by Anonymous User » Mon Sep 21, 2015 12:43 am

Leaning litigation, with an interest in White Collar - but not really positive about either at this point, so I'd like a well-rounded experience.

Got a good vibe from each office, but in different ways, so I'm curious about the TLS consensus, considering all factors (substantive work, compensation, exit options, etc.) Forum search turned up only dated results.

Thanks for any input.

All good, but personally I would lean towards working at the home office so I would go with Mayer. They also have a good white collar practice.

Latham and Mayer are both great options in Chicago. Mayer Chicago is its flagship which can be a positive.

In Chicago, I'd probably give Mayer the edge. But as for rep outside Chicago, I'd go Latham. Can't go wrong with either though.
