When people describe a firm as "sharp elbowed" they're talking about Kirkland.

So much broish chest-banging and douchebaggery.

Paul Weiss looks dope as hell, they don’t have a billable requirement (YMMV) and their summer lunch budget is bussin’; I feel like Kirkland is like the popular kid at school who everyone makes fun of when they’re actually just conventionally attractive and from a good family

Honestly I’ve heard they both have terrible cultures. Kirkland’s by far the worst. But to be fair, the only top v10-15 firms I’ve heard good things about re culture and lifestyle are Sidley and Quinn, so take that with a grain of salt

I’m in PW funds and can answer any questions. Generally, this group is great and I would never go to Kirkland as an associate (maybe a NEP but only if the money were right)

I have been offered a job at KPMG within cyber security in the uk. Originally it was a 25% hike offer. Now I have received a 8% hike at Deloitte as part of the current performance cycle along with a 5k bonus (great incentives every year) The only thing is KPMG is offering this in a @kpmg regional location where I’m based plus the disadvantage is I need to pay 2500£ for my dependent visa costs which I can save if I continued with Deloitte. Seen Lot of negative comments about KPMG. Any thoughts ?

I’m curious to hear people’s thoughts on moving up (particularly within biglaw) with the goal of being a star litigator.

Is marketing the only way up in the biglaw model?

Tonight’s pour is Michter’s American for Mrs. PS, while I break into the Offerman Lagavulin. It’s slightly hotter than the Lag16 with a little upfront sweetness and noticeable oak.

Lagavulin, but doesn’t top the Lagavulin JazzFest in my book.
