NEW YORK – From my first interactions with members of Weil’s team, it was clear to me that the firm’s culture emphasized collegiality and approachability. Subsequent exchanges only served to reinforce my initial impressions, and give credence to the firm’s reputation as a dynamic workplace. Although word of Weil’s strength in mentoring summer associates had trickled down to me through law school peers, all manner of firms make similar claims. So I admit to overlooking mentorship as a key consideration when choosing Weil over other firms. Yet from my first day at Weil it was abundantly clear to me that mentorship was no simple catchphrase.
