Competitive Intelligence Extern, Irvine, CA - August 24, 2015
My primary responsibility was to research and create an all-encompassing dossier on key municipalities and municipal figures that the firm did not represent at the time in order for the firm’s attorneys to familiarize themselves with the city and its local politicians. I learned about municipal law and the great lengths municipal lawyers must go through daily to make sure their clients are within the bounds of the law. My supervisor, the staff, and the working environment created thanks to the friendliness of the entire BBK staff made everyday of time there enjoyable. It was a very welcoming environment that in a sense redefined the notion of what a lawyer was. For instance, BBK had a "Casual Friday" and implemented a "Casual Thursday" as well. Simply put, suits, ties, etc. were not to be worn on those days.
