This year’s Summer Associate Program follows the same protocol set into place during last year’s program. The summer associates will support the firm virtually, providing assistance on work and research projects assigned by attorneys and practice leaders in the firm. In addition to virtual social events, they will also attend weekly practice group information sessions to learn more about different areas of the law. The associates will also be invited to attend various meetings with clients, depositions, hearings, and more.

The summer associates will assist with all aspects of the firm’s practice in key areas such as Public law, Environmental law, Intellectual Property, Labor & Employment law, Creditors’ Rights, Business law and Real Estate.
