Law Firms / Re: Is it better to work in a law firm than in a company?

Working in-house generally necessitates a significant paycut. Recently, in-house attys are working comparable hours to those at firms; it's not nearly as great a lifestyle as it was 10 years ago.  If you have the opportunity to work for a real firm, do it.

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.
