The penalty for having a partner announce layoffs on a train was six spots according to Vault. There have been other Pillsbury cutbacks. But the Acela incident happened when associates had Vault surveys sitting on their desks.
After the jump, let’s take a look at some of the other firms in this group.
Holding the Heller Ehrman memorial number 66 position is K&L Gates.
Sonnenschein and Cahill both fell a few spots, but Cahill fell further, allowing Sonnenschein to jump Cahill this year. Is there something specific that makes Sonnenschein less prestigious than last year, yet suddenly more prestigious than Cahill?
At least we can give Holland & Knight credit for consistency. Ranked #65 last year, HK comes in at #65 again this year.
What do you guys think about these firms?
