Lindquist & Vennum has once again been ranked among the Best Places to Work in Minnesota by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal. A three-time honoree, our firm ranked 14th in the medium-sized company category.

"It's a high priority for us to provide an environment that encourages teamwork and mutual respect," said the firm's managing partner Daryle Uphoff. "We value everyone who works here and the contributions they make to the firm."

Best Places to Work are chosen based on an electronic employee survey. Employees are asked to rate their companies on these topics: work environment, embracing innovations/new ideas, people practices, personal growth and development, people in the organization and how things work day-to-day.

Information about the firm culture and efforts to create a positive work environment are featured in the August 17 issue of The Business Journal.

Lindquist & Vennum's Summer Associate Program, offered in our Minneapolis office, is intentionally small—seven to nine students—but is an integral part of our hiring process. In fact, offers were extended to all nine of our 2007 summer associates and all have decided to join the firm in 2008.

To ensure summer associate exposure to various legal matters, during the first half of the summer we assign work from many of the firm's practice areas. During the second half of the program, Summer Associates solicit projects on their own, just as associates do.

Summer associates are encouraged to attend depositions, motion hearings, trials, negotiating sessions, client meetings and closings.

We attempt to give each summer associate as much feedback as possible. The summer associate receives an oral evaluation and a written evaluation on each project. These evaluations are discussed with the summer associate during two formal performance evaluations.

Because a lawyer's ability to communicate through writing is crucial to success in the practice of law, we offer a writing program. Each associate is assigned a writing program mentor. Three initial writing assignments are critiqued for organizational abilities, style and composition.

Involvement with assignments and meetings does not preclude social activities which include both cultural and sporting events. Two associate mentors help acquaint each summer associate with other members of the firm and with the Twin Cities.
