ATL March Madness: The Law Firm With the Brightest Future — Finals

The basketball tournament may be over, but ATL March Madness still has one more round of voting. It all comes down to this. After four rounds of voting, we finally have our finals set. And it’s not the matchup I would have predicted.

Negotiating the harsh realities of a challenging economy is a tall order, and our readers think the two firms in the finals are the best equipped to come out on top.

No word yet on whether the partners of either firm in the finals have decided to get inked up if they win.

There’s still some magic in Gibson’s Cinderella story. Wachtell looked nigh unbeatable before Gibson showed up and whipped them by 18 points. It may be time to stop calling them an underdog. Meanwhile, Paul, Weiss continued its march through the other side of the bracket with a comfortable 8 point victory over Kirkland.

An East vs. West finals. Two firms that can trace their roots to the late 1800s, looking to declare themselves the firm of the future. Time to get to voting.

Voting closes for this round on SUNDAY, APRIL 14, at 11:59 PM (Eastern).

Which firm has the brightest future?

  • Paul, Weiss (67%, 69,524 Votes)
  • Gibson (33%, 34,002 Votes)

Total Voters: 103,517
