I have found the firm to be full of truly interesting people

After almost 15 years recruiting at large law firms in New York City, I moved with my family to Connecticut and was fortunate to find this position at Withers Bergman based in New Haven. I joined the firm in January 2015 and have learned a tremendous amount in a relatively short time. Withers is dedicated to, and succeeds at providing its extensive global network of clients with the highest level of legal advice and representation. I have found the firm to be full of truly interesting people, which is not always something one can say about a law firm. What makes it a great place to work on a daily basis is the firm’s commitment to its values of teamwork and respect for one another.
