We are looking for students who are well-rounded and demonstrate the creativity and excellence it takes to find the best practical and legal solutions to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.

We also recruit students with an eye on diversity, so we can broaden the perspective of our team. Our summer associates demonstrate the virtues of personal integrity, camaraderie, community, mutual respect, and professionalism.
