"White shoe"[edit]

I've deleted the "white shoe" reference in the article (and have proposed deleting the "white shoe law firms" category). "White shoe" is a subjective label that suggests elitism and conservativism. Most people would not apply it to a "bulge bracket" firm like SPB or any of the other big Swiss Verein firms, but more to the old and super-prestigious firms in New York that have strong ties to Wall Street. Some discussions about the phrase below for reference:

In addition, there's a historical racist connotation to the label. See, e.g., http://www.weeklystandard.com/remembering-the-white-shoe-firm/article/2000803
