I work in mergers and acquisitions.  It’s kind of intense.  I wouldn’t recommend it, actually.  You want to do litigation, right?  Litigators have a better sense of what their workload will be like day-to-day and week-to-week, which makes it easier for them to have a life outside of work.  Most of the litigators I know seem to be relatively happy with their jobs.

I work in a civil litigation firm. We do international law (mostly admiralty), small business stuff, and a handful of personal type cases like PI or legal malpractice.

Honestly, you might want to reconsider the M&A idea.  I was at work until 5AM Wednesday “night,” went home to get 2 hours of sleep and then went back to the office.  I was there until 2AM last night.  The guy I’m working for let me leave since I “must be tired.”  When I woke up this morning I had 7 emails since I had gone to bed.  This is what it’s like much of the time.  The work can be interesting, but the hours are insane.  It’s very hard on your body and your emotional state and makes it really hard to maintain relationships with people since you’re constantly canceling plans.
