The firm's hiring programs are driven by the needs of our clients. Because of the focused nature of the firm's core areas of practice, our summer programs are relatively small in size and limited to candidates with a demonstrated interest in the work done by the firm. Participants in our summer programs receive a wide variety of substantive assignments across practice disciplines, mentoring, and training, as well as the opportunity to get to know firm personnel and each other through social activities.
