cadwalader's management was taken over by a group of partners who wanted a firm where the bottom line matters above all else. they increased compensation for rainmakers and pushed out underperformers. they made a decision to abandon all pretense of the professionalism/collegiality that law firms used to embrace. it's like an investment bank. if you are down for that kind of environment, go for it.

I had a callback there - one of my interviewers literally kept working while I answered questions - like he had a sheet of rote questions he'd ask and then go back to work until he heard silence then he'd ask another question and go back to work, etc.

I left midway through the callback without telling anyone.

Lol. This sounds like a callback I did at Dechert. The only partner on my schedule cancelled on me and when I asked an associate "what do you like most about your job?" he answered "it's not all fun and games you know!"

I did an interview in a different CWT office. Every single interviewer (including the managing partner) told me that "it wasn't as bad as the blogs say" and "the rumors apply more to the new york office."

"[Cadwalader's] argument regarding the amendment to the National Union insurance policy is censurable, and we hereby censure it."

Seems harsh. Who can follow thwt mambo jumbo preceding the censure?

Remarkably, in its opening brief on behalf of its client Mead Johnson, the well‐known law firm of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft argued that the amendment does apply to claims and suits as well as to occurrences, because the caption of the amendment is “Duties in the Event of Occur‐ rence, Offense, Claim or Suit.” That is a misrepresentation. The caption is “Duties in the Event of Occurrence, Offense, Claim or Suit, a. is hereby deleted and replaced with the fol‐ lowing,” the “following” being the passage relating to notice to the risk manager of occurrences, not claims. The new pro‐ vision “a,” like the old one that it replaced, begins: “You must see to it that we are notified as soon as practicable on [sic] any ‘occurrence’ or an offense which may result in a claim.” (“Offense” is not defined, but the policy contains a list of covered “offenses,” such as copyright infringement— and, as we’ll see when we come to the second suit by Mead Johnson, product disparagement.) Claim and suit are men‐ tioned not in provision “a” but in provision “b,” which con‐ tains no reference to the Director of Risk Management. The amendment changed only “a,” which pertains only to occur‐ rences.

Cadwalader’s frivolous interpretation, though exposed in the insurance companies’ brief, is repeated in Mead John‐ son’s reply brief and was defended by Cadwalader’s lawyer for Mead at the oral argument. That a major law firm would engage in such shenanigans distresses us. The firm’s argu‐ ment regarding the amendment to the National Union in‐ surance policy is censurable, and we hereby censure it.
