A Day in The Life

“During my summer at the firm, I had the opportunity to work on a private-placement financing deal with a local technology start-up. It was interesting to learn about a new industry while working on the file. The partner included me in interactions with the client throughout the entire process – from the beginning all the way to a successful closing.”
