Maybe it changed last year, but grads of Class of 2022 got canned (in 2023) if they didn't get individual offers from overseas offices to relocate.

Can we have some more visibility on this? Especially from people in 2024 year. Prior years, a lot of firms were good (except for 2023) but not hearing much (good or bad) for this year.

From what I heard, PH and Ropes & Gray laid off. QE relocates if you get a separate offer from an international office. STB, Covington, Vincent & Elkins relocated. DPW and S&C relocated in previous years, not sure about this year. Cleary laid off in previous years, also not sure about this year.

When did Cleary layoff h1bs? Where did you get this intel for this year? :(

Can confirm that Cleary cancelled offers for incoming associates (Class of 2020) who didn't get H1B.

Heard about DPW relocating at least 1 person this year. Not sure about firm-wide policy.

Also, heard that Summer 2026 offerees at DPW are being told upfront that DPW will not relocate them. Not sure how this will affect the years in-between.
