Summer Associates

We recruit summer associates who are driven to contribute and want to be challenged. 

Meaningfully contributing your skills and talents in high-profile cases with exceptionally accomplished lawyers is but one characteristic that distinguishes Kramon & Graham's Summer Associate Program from those of other firms. Steeped in excellence, teamwork, collegiality, and respect -- our firm culture is another. As a summer associate at Kramon & Graham, you will work in highly-collaborative team settings on sophisticated national and local litigation, real estate, and transactional matters.

Because of the diverse range of cases and matters we handle, and because of the complexity and time-sensitivity of our work, Kramon & Graham summer associates will be challenged to improve their skills and learn new ones. You will benefit from exposure to early case evaluation, trial strategy, and contract negotiation. You will attend hearings, depositions, settlement conferences, real estate closings, and client meetings.

We hire summer associates with the expectation that the individuals selected are capable of becoming successful lawyers at the firm. We look for mature summer associate candidates with top academic credentials, journal participation, and impressive undergraduate credentials. We seek students with excellent writing skills, initiative, personal presence, and a strong work ethic. While we have a national profile, we are Baltimore-based. Our ideal candidate is seriously considering Maryland as the preferred place to live and develop professionally. 

Our summer program is a key component of our hiring and recruitment effort. The program provides an opportunity for learning and evaluation for both the summer associate and the firm. For students, you will gain first-hand exposure to our lawyers, our culture, and our clients. For the firm, it provides an opportunity to assess the skills of a prospective associate.

We will begin accepting applications for the 2020 Summer Associate Program in June 2019. Please check back to this page at that time.

Associate Life

Kramon & Graham hires associates with the expectation that they have the talent, dedication, and ability to become principals of the firm. New associates often join the firm following a judicial clerkship or after participating in our Summer Associate Program.

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

Our litigation associates work on high-stakes commercial and criminal matters under the supervision of firm principals. As a litigation associate, you will work on a variety of matters. It's not unusual to work on a white collar criminal case one day and a construction defect case the next. Senior associates in our insurance coverage area tend to be more dedicated to that specific practice.

Our transaction associates work with firm principals in the real property and business law groups. Their work typically includes transactions involving the purchase or sale of real property or businesses, commercial real estate finance, land use, 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.

Kramon & Graham has always attracted highly motivated top-quality lawyers with a commitment to excellence. In our hiring criteria, we look for lawyers with exceptional writing skills, initiative, personal presence, a strong work ethic, and who seek a varied experience in their practice.
