Things are starting to heat up… and I don’t just mean the weather. The Summer Program here at Bilzin Sumberg is in full swing! This past weekend, the Summer Associates were invited to Mitch Widom’s house in The Keys for a party with the firm’s Litigation Practice Group, and there couldn’t have been a better way to mark the midway point of our Summer Program.
We took off from Bilzin Sumberg’s Brickell office in a party bus. The drive flew by as we enjoyed great conversation and music. Shout out to Brianna Sainte for doing a great job on the AUX cord! Once we arrived at Mitch’s house, we received a warm welcome to the party with delicious appetizers and drinks. My fellow Summer Associates and I were made to feel a part of the Bilzin Sumberg family immediately, which only made the rest of the night even more fun. It’s hard to say what was better about the dinner: the gorgeous scenery in the backyard area where we were seated, or the incredible food that was served. My vote will have to be for the Seafood Paella!
As we round out the month of June, it is becoming more surreal that the Summer is quickly passing by. Jessica Buchsbaum wasn’t kidding when she told us that the Summer was going to fly by on our first day. Though the program will soon be over, the relationships we are all building are ones to last. The wonderful time we had in the Keys with the Litigation group has further solidified that.
Thank you to Mitch Widom and Alicia, his wife, for welcoming us all to your home. The food, ambiance, and scenery made the party one to remember. Yet, the best part was the company. It is very clear why Bilzin Sumberg is “Proud to be Judged by the Company We Keep.”
