DLA Piper News

When I agreed to blog about my experiences at DLA Piper this summer, I knew it would be fitting to discuss the event that likely will be a memorable highlight for all of us: our summer retreat.

We had delicious food and drinks and proceeded to learn about Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, got to see a collection of amazing guitars, and even played our own instruments. My boyfriend, a musician, was surely squirming with jealousy.

For our 2012 Summer Associate event, our 57 Summer Associates gathered in Seattle to get to know one another and learn more about the vision and values of the Firm.  The program focused on the importance of building bonds with colleagues, clients and our communities.  The event also featured a dynamic partner/client panel, a discussion of law firm economics, the importance of diversity & inclusion in everything we do, the value of pro bono work and a discussion of emotional intelligence in the workplace.  Everyone was treated to a unique Seattle experience including a visit to the Experience Music Project Museum and a cooking party and dinner at the Blue Ribbon Cooking School.
