You can't buck New York headquarters unless you're Pat Kelly. Bring Pat Kelly back as managing partner. Too political and oppressive.

Interesting work for the most part, nice offices, felt proud to work there, not much else to recommend it (20 words).

Terrible management. It was fun when Pat Kelly was managing partner. For the last four years, it has been poorly run. No raise for several years.

Better to list the partners who I enjoyed working with -- Herb Kunowski, Michael Douglass, Pat Kelly, Steve Joffe, Marty Deniston, and others

Conveniently located, freedom to decorate your office the way you want, nice amenities, good parking structure, close to a lot of happening restaurants, bars, lounges, etc.

Be prepared to brush up on your bird law, because you will be dealing with it on a daily basis here.

Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker LLP is not your average starter firm. This is a finisher firm, a firm fit only for five star lawyers.

They mostly deal with bird law, although they have been known to handle some divorce cases. Some troublesome clients are not turned away.
