We’ve been part of Western New York since 1852. And through our private and corporate clients; our partners, associates and staff; and the local organizations we help support, this community is truly part of our firm. Now, more than 160 years later, Woods Oviatt Gilman has a national and worldwide reach from our headquarters in Rochester, NY and offices in Buffalo, NY and Phoenix, AZ, and our colleagues in the Meritas global alliance.
Woods Oviatt Gilman LLP practices law in the following areas and works with its clients to provide the best possible legal solutions.
Our program is designed to take maximum advantage of the opportunity which we have in the legal industry to employ summer associates. Summer clerkship allows both the firm and candidates for permanent positions a trial or test run prior to committing to a permanent employment relationship. The philosophy underlying our Program has always been to take maximum advantage of this opportunity by making the summer associate experience mirror what it is like to be employed by the Firm after graduation, as an associate. To accomplish this end, we provide our summer associates with real work assignments involving real cases and issues. We attempt to avoid purely academic pursuits such as writing articles or researching issues that have no relationship to client work. We strive to provide a working environment that allows the summer associate to experience what it is like to practice law as an associate attorney. Only by treating our summer associates similarly to associates, including the challenges and responsibilities that all attorneys face, can they experience what it would be like to work here in the future. The feedback which we have consistently received is that these efforts are successful.
