This might be a dumb question but are you allowed to disclose who your clients are in an interview? E.g., if you worked on matters for a Fortune 500, can you name that company in your interview?

If anything linking you to that client is public domain, then yes. For example, if you’re in litigation and a judgment includes you as counsel for that client. Otherwise no, it’s privileged.

Agreed with above- I usually say something that places the size of the company in my example during interviews- they do above xx in revenue a year, have more than xx number of customers or employees, etc. this way, I can talk about the work without violating anything. Or just general description- “a large teaching hospital” or “a national grocery store”

If the deal has signed and there's a press release or publically filed docs on it, identities are completely ok. Otherwise, in an interview, I wouldn't. Just looks sloppy even if it is technically ethically ok. Always err on side of privilege. I would say something like PE client's $300M acquisition of healthcare industry business, something like that. Also personally, the more fluff someone gives on how prestigious the deal may seem on paper versus actual substantive discussion of the work they did puts me off as an interviewer. I don't care if it was $30M or $3B, I am more interested in how you resolved a complicated issue. Smaller deals often have a lot more hair actually, because every dollar actually moves the needle.
