good litigation, you save money on dry cleaning, and they are kind of nuts.

Nuts how?

read abovethelaw.com  one of their partners converted a treadmill into a desk and does work while walking every day.  kinda crazy. 

I have a friend that worked at Quinn.  She loved it.  I interviewed there this year and thought they were great.  I wasnt really what they were looking for, but it seems like a great place. They have grown really really fast but seem to be maintaining growing their reputation just as fast.

i mean both that there are some eccentric people (the treadmill guy, the partner who takes summer associates on really dangerous hiking trips) and they are kind of intense. The people who work there really seem to love it though.

That's not crazy.

I think it is.  to be a partner and in a prestigious firm and actually charge clients while you are on a treadmill all day is a little crazy.

I beg to differ.

I'm a pacer.  Should I not charge clients while I'm pacing talking on the phone?

The science behind the treadmill thing is dead on.  Some people simply burn more calories because we fidget more during the day.  I'm one of those people.

well, you can disagree.  I just dont think its possible to read a case and fully absorb it while on a treadmill.  It has to kill the concentration.  I dont think there is anything wrong with pacing and talking on the phone.  Im just saying, it is a little strange to put a treadmill in your office and do work.  To each his own.

You're clearly not a pacer.

I'm working for Quinn next summer.  I like them.  They work a lot.  Definitely not a lifestyle firm.

Requesting a treadmill office?   :)

Hah, no.  I don't think I would get much of a rush from a 1.5 mph walk.
