Thanks, everyone! CLT, DC, or Chicago.

Had a couple friends at the Richmond office. Litigation practice seemed probably a little less intense than typical NYC or DC biglaw, but those folks still weren’t leaving the office before 7 most days.

Their consulting/lobbying practice is very busy near session but otherwise has a better balance in the off season.

It’s been a few years since my friends worked there, and this pertains to the Richmond office, so things could have changed or could vary based on office and practice group.

Friends in LA office make it sound very group/partner specific

Any specific office or practice group?

My friends who work in the Chicago office like it!
