Currently a NY summer associate at a V20. Looking to move to LA at some point in the next few years, and would like to stick with this firm (assuming I get an offer) and move to their LA office.

Assuming you're a law student. Have a conversation with the firm. Where you can go oftentimes largely depends on where you're licensed. Are you planning to take both NY and CA bar exams? Only one? Will the feedback you get from the firm make a difference re: which one you take/take first? Usually when you get an offer, it is for a particular office, not a "pick your office and we'll place you there" offer. You really should talk to the firm, because the LA office probably has their own summers there, and you're working with the NY lawyers and they're doing the same with the LA lawyers, so you need to find out if LA is even an option for you right out of school. If it's not, you should take and pass the NY bar, let the firm know of your long-term plans, take the CA bar as soon as you can, and leverage your 2-state licensure to secure a transfer to the LA office when you can.
