Any thoughts about MoFo Cali for ecvc work? My recruiter keeps telling me it’s a bad move but I LOVE the people. Seems totally different than big law vibe

MoFo ECVC in CA used to be strong but it’s lost a lot of ground against the major players that truly support ECVC practices (Gunderson, Cooley, WSGR, Goodwin, Fenwick, etc.). And compared to their peers, their vibe is way more big law. Your recruiter is giving you good advice, but your mileage may vary.

This is unhelpful but truthfully I wanted to work for them 80% because of the nickname/shorthand. Best firm name ever.

As someone who works in the ECVC space, I rarely ever see them across from me whether company side or investor side. I see Cooley, WSGR, Fenwick, Gunderson, Goodwin, Latham all the time.

Does the recruiter’s fee depend on where you go? Either way, it seems like you have strong feelings and I wouldn’t discount that.

That’s what’s interesting but it doesn’t. I even asked Bc I didn’t understand. The recruiter really thinks for ecvc work and brand it’s not great

Why does the recruiter say it’s a bad move?

Curious to hear, I see people leave that particular office

4th year litigation associate in Houston. Big firm on Cravath. Looks like I’ll cap out around 2100 hours YTD; hour requirement is 2000. I’ve received half of COVID bonus (expect other half to come end of year). Been receiving good feedback from partners and senior associates. What can I expect for discretionary year end bonus?
