Our Summer Associate Program

Get ready for an incredibly interactive and immersive nine weeks. As a summer associate, you will be paired with three attorneys: two mentors to help you get to know the firm and a project attorney to help with the nuts and bolts of your work. You’ll do real client projects and often have an opportunity to interact with clients directly.

What To Expect:

  • Real-time feedback, coaching on your assignments, and formal reviews
  • One-on-one lunches and coffees with attorneys and shareholders
  • The chance to work with multiple practices to get to know each team and learn what they do

Beyond the hands-on experience, you’ll learn about each practice in our popular “101” lunches, presented by team members from across our offices.

All of these interactions are your opportunity to start forming connections and experience our highly collaborative approach. It is a program designed to give you the real attorney experience. We think it’s the best nine weeks of the year!

What Makes Our Program Unique?

Don't take our word for it. Hear from past summer associates about why we stand out.

Thrive Through Mentorship

Mentorship lies at the heart of our culture. As a summer associate, we prioritize your growth by providing invaluable one-on-one time with dedicated mentors and project attorneys who are deeply invested in your success.

Our commitment to mentorship extends far beyond these initial interactions. Everyone actively embraces and supports the program (and we're excited to meet you!). We want to get to know you over lunch or during one of our many events. We look forward to creating memorable experiences together.

The Summer Associate Program allowed me the opportunity to immerse myself in diverse practice areas, helping me to gain practical skills, expand my legal knowledge, and help determine my passions in the legal field, but more importantly it allowed me to form lasting connections with other members of the firm and my summer associate class.

My experience as a first-year associate has been nothing short of amazing. While learning to function as a high-level attorney is a difficult task no matter where you start your career, the help and encouragement from my colleagues, and the learning opportunities and resources that the firm offers, have made the transition enjoyable.
