What's the culture/workplace environment like at Quinn Emanuel in the DC office? Specifically for the IP Lit group. I have a lateral opportunity and while I like my current firm, the signing bonus is tempting.

I wouldn’t leave a market paying firm I like for just $25k more.


I know, 25k isn't huge but it is does sweeten the deal a bit. I should've stated this in the original but I'm also intrigued by the amount of trial/litigation experience you get early on there. The few associates I've talked to all seem to agree that it's common and easy to get this kind of substantive litigation experience, even as a junior. I currently do like my firm and I'm at a good level of work and not totally swamped all the time but I do wonder if it would be good for me/my career to step out of my comfort zone to get some more experience that seems to be harder to get at my firm. I just thought I'd post here for additional input on the overall culture without the extra details of my situation

Curious what they’re offering in signing bonus.


25k plus covering my year end bonus that I'd miss out on as 2nd year.

Hi All, I have cleared all 3-4 round of interviews in Apisero by 26 Dec. HR also taken all the documents like salary slips etc. She said offer may take some time due to new year holidays.

So just wanted to know what is the point of all these rounds.

Anyone know of job opportunities for a UK qualified solicitor (corporate law) in Germany?

Would really appreciate any help on this, TIA.
