Cultures at Cleary vs. Davis Polk (NY)

Post by haatis.17 » Tue Jul 02, 2024 9:36 am

Have offers at both firms for next summer. Interested more in corporate work, with a particular focus on M&A and Cap Markets (which has me thinking Davis Polk). Curious of people's thoughts about the culture, exit opps, and general reputation for both firms. Thanks!

For purposes of being a summer associate, both are the same along virtually every substantive metric. If you picked one over the other based on a preference for the neighborhood the office is in, that would not be an irrational way to make this decision.

Both excellent and both at the top end of the prestige rankings in New York. Lean DPW for capital markets, lean Cleary for international work.
