I first came across MBHB at a job fair while I was in my second year of law school at the Illinois Institute of Technology’s Chicago Kent College of Law. I applied for and was accepted into the firm’s summer associate program. This program allowed me to explore various areas of patent law while I was earning my JD. I met teams across the firm and had the chance to work on both prosecution and litigation projects. The program allowed me to build important relationships and decide what I wanted to focus on after law school.
Following the summer associate program, I stayed at MBHB as a law clerk while I finished law school. The firm was flexible and allowed me to successfully balance work with school. Throughout the summer associate program and my time as a law clerk, I had the opportunity to do substantive work on important client projects.
Having worked at various law firms before joining MBHB, I was drawn to the firm’s culture. The attorneys are friendly and supportive, and my mentors invested significant time and energy into my growth and development. I truly feel like everyone at the firm wants to see – and help – me succeed.
