Former Summer Associate Testimonials

Holland & Knight's summer associate program offers participants an attractive combination of sophisticated legal work, social events and professional activities. As a summer associate, my work included drafting an asset purchase agreement and Daubert motions for an intellectual property dispute, researching complex civil litigation issues and representing a criminal defendant in a pro bono matter. The challenging work, the opportunity to work with committed professionals and the collegial atmosphere created a unique, and unsurpassed, work environment. I am proud to be part of Holland & Knight.
As a summer associate at Holland & Knight, I was provided the opportunity to work on matters in a comparable manner as if I were a regular associate. It's like starting the training process early. Because the work is not theoretical experience, but real-life, hands-on learning, the summer associate experience prepared me to handle cases and deals in the future. Now as a full-time associate, I am not pigeonholed into practicing a specific type of deal. I can look outside of my office and reach out to attorneys who will help train me on new types of matters.
