KTMC provides new lawyers and summer associates with uniquely challenging opportunities. At KTMC, everyone, regardless of experience level, has exposure to substantive, stimulating, and impactful assignments. Our litigation pool approach provides new lawyers with exposure to a diverse group of associates and partners to learn from. Rather than following a lockstep process, our associates are encouraged to take on high level workloads as quickly as they are able to. All new lawyers are paired up with a Partner/Counsel as a part of our New Lawyer Mentor Program.

Summers at KTMC

Our summer program is designed to give summer associates a realistic glimpse into life as a fulltime KTMC associate. Summer associates work very closely with our partners, counsel, and associates on challenging assignments. We strive to fully integrate summer associates with their respective litigation departments so that they can develop the deepest possible understanding of our case strategy. We depend on our summer associates to contribute meaningfully and allow them to do so by providing them with plentiful resources and direct access to more-senior lawyers.
