Id look at the corporate partners' bios to understand what corporate for that office means: M&A, cap mkts, venture, etc. Ask them about their practices and what types of deals they do. If you have access to PLI, they do 1 hr briefings on trends that might be helpful, and if you have access to PLC, the have "practice nite" overviews that can demystify different types of corporate work.
