Law students can use Lateral Link as a valuable resource to research AmLaw 100 firms. Interested in comparing one firm against another? We analyze firms by surveying practicing attorneys, summer associates, and law firm management. We summarize our results in the Career Center so you have the tools necessary to compare firms on a number of criteria, such as salary and bonus information. Our recruiters, including a former managing partner of an AmLaw firm, also provide career tips on our blog. Please note, our directors frequently visit law schools across the country to speak on a number of relevant topics, including networking, market trends, and things you should know before starting as a summer associate.
A firm with international reach, this law firm's 1,000 attorneys are organized and operated as a single, integrated global partnership. The firm prides itself on its cross-border transactional capacity and inter-office collaboration. The firm's core practice groups include M&A, finance, and tax, as well as a highly regarded international practice, particularly in Latin America. The firm employs lawyers from more than 50 countries, and perhaps because of this diversity, associates say the firm has a pleasantly eccentric environment, filled with very "smart," "quirky," "non-arrogant" people.
