Great for the person that wants to get away from large New York type law and move to a more hip and smaller city. Also great for anyone into tech companies and issues.Pros : They have a large practice but it is really focused around business and commercial clients. It is a great place to break into the tech market since many of the local companies in the area are tech ones. They are really focused on that and you will meet many of those types of clients. Also with the location there is a lot of port and maritime law.
