Hi, everyone.
Could anyone share some information about Michael Best & Friedrich?  I've read Vault and NALP forms for that firm.
Still, I am looking for any positive/negative info...Also, I would appreciate any insights on Milwaukee legal market in a whole.

Thanks a lot...

MBF is a great firm. They're very strong in IP and litigation. All the major firms in Milwaukee (Reinhart, Quarles, Godfrey, MBF) except for Foley are very good regional lawfirms. Foley is the only truly national firm in Milwaukee. If you want to work 2200 hours and do Fortune 500 work on a consistent basis, go work at Foley. If you want high level, quality work where you're not spending every living moment at the office, any of the other firms are great.

If you have more questions about, feel free to PM me.

Thanks for your response.  I am concerned a little bit about their bonus structure and pay increases each year, as I heard from some people that MBF is not as generous in this aspect of compensation as some other Milwaukee firms. What do you think?
