“Prior to becoming a Mergers and Acquisitions associate at McDonald Hopkins, I was a law clerk for 2 years. In contrast to my prior legal experiences, this firm consistently stood out for a number of reasons. McDonald Hopkins’ strong focus on culture, strategic growth, and entrepreneurship drew me in and made me want to build my own practice here. The broad and specialized expertise among my colleagues has allowed me to witness firsthand the unique and exceptional value we can bring to clients. This firm is more than just a team of lawyers, but rather a family who supports one another to strengthen our core values.”
