Seven new attorneys join Honigman from its 2007 and 2008 summer associate programs

December 22, 2009

Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP (Honigman) is pleased to announce that seven new attorneys have joined the firm, six of whom were 2008 Summer Associates and one who was a 2007 Summer Associate. All of the attorneys are located in Honigman’s Detroit office.

“We are very pleased to welcome these fine attorneys, especially since the current economic conditions have made it very difficult for many recent law school graduates to find work. Each of them has an impressive law school record and was a successful member of Honigman’s summer program,” said the firm’s Chairman and CEO David Foltyn. “We have an outstanding record of success with our Summer Associate Program evidenced by the fact that more than one-third of the attorneys currently in our firm began their career at Honigman in our summer program.”
