Participants in the firm’s Summer Associate Program have the opportunity to gain tangible legal experience in transactional and litigation matters in various departments and practice areas while working with partners and associates at the firm. This year’s program is being conducted within a remote framework due to ongoing restrictions related to COVID-19. Still, to the extent possible, our summer associates will receive direct exposure to the legal process by attending virtual events including closings, hearings/trials, depositions, negotiations, and business meetings that take place throughout the summer. Informal remote social and networking opportunities will be offered to further develop professional and personal ties to the firm and its attorneys. Litigation partner Stephanie G. Reckord serves as the supervising partner for the Summer Associate Program.
