"If you haven't got anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me." *

Now that’s a sentiment that might embraced by many of the respondents in our ongoing, 13th annual Law Firm Associate Survey. As we all know, it’s more fun to trash a competitor than to praise one. So when it comes to the Buzz we publish as part of a firm’s profile, we are careful to select quotes which are “fair” in the sense of being representative of a major current of respondent opinion. And “balanced” in that we typically publish four Buzz comments for each firm—two positive and two negative (or, at least, not positive). Below, in no particular order, is a sampling** of the current Buzz on Vault’s firms ranked Nos. 6 through 10 for overall prestige (at least as the voting now stands). Feel free to guess the firm being described in the comments.

“We like to bore you”

“We get it. You did the Lehman bankruptcy.”

“Not as ‘quirky’ as they think they are.”

“Crème de la crème for those without souls.”

“More respected than it should be; froze salaries under the radar.”

[Previous installment, Nos. 1-5 here]

*Alice Roosevelt Longworth, First Daughter, turn-of-the-century party girl and, much later, an “ambulatory Washington monument,” had a pillow embroidered with this motto.
