From that list, I've only worked across from Weil. The do solid fund formation work. I would look at the partners profiles and list of recent matters to determine if it's the sort of practice you'd be interested in. Tax work can be quite varied.

Nice group of people at Dechert.

Met with some Akin tax associates who seem really cool. It seems like a generalist group that does deals and fund formation.

Haven’t worked across from Akin but I know they do energy related tax work, and some folks I know who came up there and are now senior elsewhere all are grounded, solid tax attorneys.

I’m not in Latham’s tax/benefits group, but they’re hands down my favorite group of people at the firm. They’re really down to earth, close-knit and feel like a family. I did a lot of work with them as a summer associate and I desperately tried to like tax/benefits work just so I could join the group
