Avneet chose BLG after having many positive first interactions with various members of the firm. Avneet knew the team was extremely welcoming and inclusive and would be an excellent place for her to get the necessary mentorship and opportunities to help her legal career thrive. Avneet drawn to BLG because of the firm’s wide range of practice areas and opportunities they provide to further hands-on training opportunities for students and lawyers.
