How would you describe the culture at Schulte?

One of the first things that struck me about Schulte was how warm and genuinely human the people here are. Associates and partners don’t hesitate to help you resolve difficult client questions and invest in you. The goal is always to provide the best service to the client, and we work as a team to achieve this end without worrying about office politics or credit. The associate classes are tight-knit and socialize outside of work. We go out together, invite each other to our homes, and occasionally even attend each other’s weddings. I treasure my personal life, but I’m grateful to have co-workers that I can also call friends.

How has the LGBTQ Affinity Group at Schulte affected you?

Schulte helps forge a sense of community among the LGBTQ attorneys through the affinity group, where we can socialize, identify pro bono projects for the firm, and advocate for a more inclusive workspace and community.

What was the path that led you to the legal industry and Schulte?

I’ve always loved solving puzzles, and to me the law is a series of jigsaw pieces that need to be fit together. Corporate law’s focus on negotiations and reaching deals drew me in, and my summer associate experience at Schulte sealed the deal. During the summer program an Investment Management associate asked me to research a question, and I came back with a partial answer and even more questions. We talked it out and he followed up with additional assignments and introduced me to Dan Hunter, the partner supervising that private equity fund closing. I asked Dan if I could continue shadowing on the closing to see how it would play out, and to my delight he agreed and added me to the team. I began to see how the fund terms guide the jigsaw of documents we draft, and wanted to learn more. I still ask questions constantly, and (thankfully) the partners have not tired of me yet.

What do you focus on in your practice?

I help hedge and private equity clients launch and maintain investment funds, negotiate terms with large investors (through side letters or funds of one), and manage an ever changing regulatory landscape.

In what ways does the firm support your professional development?

Schulte has a flexible mentoring program that allows you to strengthen connections you have with partners, special counsel, and other associates. We recap client interactions, discuss skills you should continue to hone, and how to balance work and personal obligations. The firm also has formal training programs that cover the major legal issues we regularly see and also provides regular updates on the business side of what we do. A good lawyer can give you an answer on the legal question you ask. A great lawyer keeps the big picture in mind to help you achieve your goals, and Schulte works to build us into great lawyers.
