Within our business law practice, the Associate will gain exposure to and experience in the formation of corporations, limited liability companies and other business organizations, commercial loan transactions, equity financings (including private equity and venture capital) and mergers and acquisitions (including sales of stock and assets).

We have a strong preference for candidates who have:
