I have an interview with a solid MM firm (Houlihan//Harris) coming up. I have 3 years (post JD from top 7 law school) experience working in lower middle market PE (1.5 years) and then IB (1.5 years) in the midwest. Almost all of my deal experience (around 12-14ish) has been with deals in the $30 million - $100 million dollar range. While I am experienced enough to realize that deals are deals and the process is relatively the same, (if not slightly more difficult at times IMO in a small shop b/c of lack of resources) I have to believe that a larger MM shop in a major market is going to have reservations about my experience and the "jump" to larger deals.
Thus, I would appreciate if anyone could help me prepare for the types of reservations a MM firm could have and what they would want to see overcome in an interview.
Btw, the whole reason I want to make the move is because obviously I like what I do for a living, but want to do it on a larger scale, in a bigger market, and with more resources. When I got out of law school in 2011 I sort of fell into a lower mm position in a new PE firm ($50 million) that paid as much as law and seemed more exciting so I took it. I then switched to a sell side investment bank in the same town for a variety of reasons (which I can share if helpful). Thanks in advance.
