SUMMER ASSOCIATE 2016

Summer associates at Withers are given the opportunity to explore the firm’s varied practice groups and receive substantial assignments from partners and associates. I was given real work and responsibility, and provided the tools necessary to succeed.

Attorneys at the firm were genuinely invested in the summer associates’ training and development, and it was clear that they cared about my growth and success.

The firm embraces a culture of diversity and inclusion, as well as a sense of community and teamwork. After a rewarding summer experience, I look forward to starting my legal career at Withers.

SUMMER ASSOCIATE 2014

Fortunately, my experience as a summer associate went above and beyond my high expectations. The summer program coordinators were extremely attentive to the interests of the summer associates. For example, when I expressed an interest in income tax planning, the work flow coordinator immediately assigned me various income tax matters relating to corporate reorganizations and cross-border investments.

Working as a summer associate also gave me a chance to experience the firm’s collegial work environment. Perhaps the most invaluable part of my summer at Withers was the opportunity to have countless lunch conversations with my assigned summer mentor who took the time to impart his insight as a practicing attorney. Now as an associate, I can say the spirit of mentorship continues and is a vital part of the firm’s associate culture.

In summary, I would encourage law students who are interested in working in a dynamic intellectual environment to apply to the Withers Bergman summer program.
