Voice of Maslon
Joining a new firm as a lateral attorney is a nerve-wracking experience, but I quickly felt at home at Maslon. I came to Maslon after a few years working as an associate at large, national law firms, primarily in defense of product liability litigation. After relocating to the Minneapolis legal market, I was initially drawn to Maslon by its reputation for superb products liability defense work. As I continued to research firms and participate in countless informational interviews, this interest was cemented by the warmth and generosity of the Maslon attorneys with whom I met. Taking the lateral leap of faith, I joined the firm in 2016.
I could not have landed in a better spot. As an associate at Maslon, I was able to work on the same types of product liability matters I previously defended at a prior firm, but I played a much more integral role. Because of Maslon's nimble and collaborative nature, I worked independently on many matters, gaining real, substantive experience while enjoying the support and resources of a much larger team. In addition to the practical opportunities I received, the level of access to information and strategic decision-making available to me at Maslon was central to my professional development as an attorney.
To me, the best part about Maslon is its commitment to its attorneys. Once you join Maslon, the firm hopes you will stay and is committed to providing the opportunities, resources, and other support necessary to help you succeed. This development-focused attitude paved the way for me to join the partnership in January 2021.
