LionTree SF - Reputation/Exit Opps

Lots of threads on LionTree recently, not much on the SF office. Could anyone provide insight into the quality of transactions/experience at LionTree's SF office, as well as it's ranking within the SF tech space (compared to other boutiques/EBs), and exit opps. The group is relatively small 15-20 people, growing, and has poached BB & MM group heads. Also, the group focuses solely on tech, rather than media & comms. Thanks!

The most I can tell you is that the group is small and in addition to tech they also focus on video games. For exit opps, most people go to MMF so it's not bad but I can only tell you about reputation as a whole, not specific to SF. Best advice: When applying from LionTree, stay in TMT because very few people outside recognize the name.

What made you decide to pursue a role away from your internship? I view LT as a pretty unique / potentially really interesting gig but I also know a few people that left pretty early on there (either left early for buyside or didn't return post-internship).

One of the better boutiques in SF. Similar to DBO Partners. Lean team, growing, solid exit opps, high comp, focus on tech. Source: summered.
