Recruitment and the Summer Associate Program
Our recruitment of potential top notch litigators begins with our Summer Associate Program. Each year, the firm is committed to hiring second year law students to spend the summer before their final year of law school working at our firm. The primary purpose of the Summer Associate Program is to identify qualified law students new attorneys who may be offered the opportunity to join Marshall Dennehey after graduation. Many of our attorneys began their legal career at the firm as a Summer Associate.

We believe that a Summer Associate's experience should reflect what it is like to be a first year associate at the firm. The goal is to introduce these aspiring litigators to as many different attorneys and practice areas as possible. This way, the firm can make an educated decision on whether to extend an offer to a given summer associate, and the associate can make an educated decision on whether to accept an offer.

Lateral Hires
In recent years, a number of accomplished attorneys have joined the ranks of our litigation staff to meet the continued demand for our services in defending significant litigation matters. If you have an accomplished professional record that is aligned with the legal services we offer our clients, we are interested in hearing from you.
