Associate Life

Kramon & Graham hires associates with the expectation that they have the talent, dedication, and ability to become principals of the firm. Our associates often come to the firm from judicial clerkships or through our Summer Associate Program.

Associates are given substantial responsibility at an early stage in their careers. Associates have direct contact with clients and, consistent with their experience and ability, frequently take or defend depositions, appear in court, and close transactions.

We look for lawyers with strong writing skills, initiative, personal presence, a strong work ethic, and who seek a varied experience in their practice.

Litigation associates work on a variety of matters under the supervision of principals. A litigation associate may work on a white collar criminal case one day and a construction defect case the next. Senior associates in the insurance coverage area tend to be more dedicated to that practice area.

Transaction associates work with all of the principals in the real property and business law groups. Such work typically includes transactions involving the purchase or sale of real property or businesses, commercial real estate finance, land use (including hearings before the applicable local authorities), and, occasionally, real estate-oriented litigation. Many of our clients are entrepreneurs with unique transactions resulting in opportunities for creative drafting, deal-structuring, and problem-solving.
