As mentioned above, just check NALP.  Failing that, talk to the career services at your school.  They'll point you in the right direction.

If you're talking about moving to a small-midsized firm, NOT bloody likely.  Small/mid-sized firms hold a stigma against BIGLAW associates for two main reasons.  (1) they are used to making more money than small/mid-sized firms are willing to pay.  (2) BIGLAW associates do not have the skill level necessary.

That's patently false.  It's very easy to move from BIGLAW to a small or midsized firm, as anyone who has worked in BIGLAW can readily attest.  Look through the bios at a reasonably competent midlaw firm and you'll see that virtually all of them lateraled over from BIGLAW.

No, firms don't care at all.

If you want to be in Milwaukee, work for Foley.  They're light years ahead of Quarles and have a significantly better IP practice.
