Wilson Elser
Thiebaud Remington Thornton Bailey LLP

I'd really appreciate the advice. I have interviews with these firms this upcoming week.

Thanks in advance.

Told Wilson Elser is a tough (not saying bad, there's a difference) place to work. Supposedly an alert is sent to your supervising attorney if you don't have your allotted hours billed for that day.... whether or not you are ahead of your billable requirements.

I know someone who was there for all of 6 months before upping and quitting. She was under a very toxic equity partner. Firm did nothing about it at the time, but ended up firing him 6 months after she left. I would personally recommend skipping insurance defense altogether (which I have been doing for the past three years).

Wilson Elser has a big Lyft docket I believe. Sheehy Ware I believe does construction litigation and represents some hospitals with their litigation. Not too much intel but good luck on the interviews.
