Has anyone heard anything from Husch Blackwell regarding SAs? I had a callback with them a week ago for a 1l SA. Would also love to hear what people have heard about their reputation.

I know they have been facing some backlash due to their representation of Trump and Kanye during the elections

Never heard of em but looks like they're fairly new and lit-focused

Definitely not a new firm, but also depends on what market you're talking about. They're based in Kansas City and have a big St. Louis office as well. In the major markets that they have offices in, they don't pay market (I think Chicago pays either 165 or 170). I know people who loved their summer there and people who hated it, so can't give you much insight on that part, but knowing which office you're referring to would help.

I'm referring to the Austin office.

I heard they did not give 100% offer (not because people did bad but because of their financial reasons). Take this in mind if you have other choices.

Yeah, it's an old Midwest firm that has repeatedly merged and expanded. It's biglaw by headcount but largely focused on the lower-growth parts of the Midwest (especially Missouri, in which it has five offices) and does not pay market in major cities. I don't imagine it will be a major player in Austin, especially with so many market-paying firms opening up there at the moment (McKool Smith, WSGR, plus obviously BB and VE, etc.).
