Careers: Voice of a 2014 Summer Associate


JOSHUA HARRISON, Maslon Business & Securities Associate

My summer at Maslon was a fantastic experience where I was given the opportunity to develop personally and professionally.  I received a wide variety of interesting legal projects that ranged from drafting amended bylaws for a nonprofit corporation, writing memos on significant topics, and assisting with the creation of legal alerts. Throughout the summer I was able to observe settlement conferences, pitch meetings with investment bankers, contract negotiations, and many other valuable experiences.

Legal projects are just one part of a carefully coordinated summer associate program that was engaging and immersive without being overwhelming.  The flow of assignments was managed to ensure each summer associate received projects from a variety of practice areas.  Planned social events provided me with the opportunity to meet and develop a relationship with nearly every attorney at Maslon.  Finally, assigned mentors ensured that guidance and feedback was always an email, phone call, or a knock on an office door away.

Beyond the well-designed summer program, what made my summer at Maslon such a positive experience was the commitment that was shown to developing young associates. Despite the busy pace of the office, assigning attorneys ensured that I understood how my work fit within a project or overall strategy.  Questions were encouraged, and the insights provided by the attorneys I worked with was one of the most beneficial aspects of my summer.

I recommend Maslon to anyone seeking a firm dedicated to exceptional client relationships, legal excellence, and collaboration.  I cannot imagine a finer environment for an aspiring attorney to spend a summer.
