2015 Summer Associate Rachel Wasserman discusses her unique opportunity to travel to the firm’s Tel Aviv Office
On my first day as a Summer Associate at Greenberg Traurig’s Miami office I was certain of two things. First, I was working for a prestigious, global law firm. Second, the next 10 weeks would likely be a truly educational and life-changing experience. What I didn’t know then was that five weeks into the summer program I would receive a phone call that would enlighten me as to the global nature of the practice of law at Greenberg Traurig.
June 10th started out like any other Wednesday. I walked into the office, grabbed a coffee, conversed with some of the other summer associates and got to work. Around 10:15 a.m., I received a call from Drew Altman, one of the shareholders in the firm’s Miami office. Gary Epstein, managing shareholder of the Tel Aviv office, and Joey Shabot, a shareholder also in the Tel Aviv office, reached out to Drew about the possibility of bringing one of the Miami summer associates to the Tel Aviv office to help out on a deal.
