Summer Associates

The summer program is our principal source of hiring entry-level attorneys and is designed with the summer associate’s professional development as its primary goal. Because more than three quarters of our summer associates return to the firm as full-time lawyers, we maintain high standards in the selection process. We recognize that the program should give each summer associate a realistic impression of what the people and practice of Riker Danzig are all about. Individual attention is a priority.
