Tom Mitchell quoted in NC Lawyers Weekly on MVA’s Summer Associates Program
Moore & Van Allen’s Firm Chairman Tom Mitchell was quoted regarding MVA’s Summer Associates Program in the NC Lawyers Weekly article titled, “Firms choosing different paths for summer law programs” published July 15.
Mitchell states, “Moore & Van Allen in Charlotte opted to continue its program and surveyed its 17 participants about their comfort level regarding in-person work. Based on their feedback, the summer associates are working remotely with the firm’s litigation, corporate, finance, bankruptcy and intellectual property practice groups.
Even with most attorneys working from home, summer associates have had many virtual and even some in-person opportunities to grow their relationships with our attorneys,” Mitchell said. “They have attended yoga and picnics in local parks, joined virtual ‘Lunch & Learns’ with our practice groups, played virtual team trivia, and attended small, socially-distanced gatherings with our attorneys. In-person activities are entirely optional and summer associates have chosen to attend, or not, based on their own unique circumstances and comfort levels.”
