Work Assignments

In New York, we use a centralized assignment system which allows us to tailor the distribution of work assignments to the areas of interest expressed by the summer associate. While we primarily focus on those particular areas, we encourage summer associates to explore other practice areas in order to ensure a comprehensive summer experience.

Working closely with both partners and associates, summer associates undertake a variety of complex assignments, including drafting contracts and public and private offering documents, participating in negotiation sessions and due diligence, and drafting pleadings and briefs. Summer associates often accompany our attorneys to court, depositions, client meetings and closings.
