Fitzpatrick is known for pharmaceutical litigation for name-brands, Goodwin Procter does pharmaceutical litigation for generics (mainly Teva). Goodwin Procter has a kick-ass office on 42nd street in the new NY Times building. From what I hear, everyone wants to work at Goodwin Procter because of it's emphasis on lifestyle and not having to work ridiculous hours like most other NY firms. Kaye Sch. is the typical NY firm, they see their associates as dollar figures, working and billing long hours, the people at Kaye Sch. there aren't too happy. If you don't perform at Kaye Sch., they kick you out fast. If you want to learn a lot, go to Fitzpatrick. If you want lifestyle, go to Goodwin. If you want to be miserable, go to Kaye Sch.
