“My summer student experience at Stirling LLP was excellent. I appreciate the opportunities I was provided to work on diverse assignments, but more importantly that I was treated like a lawyer. From day one I was given meaningful and challenging work and responsibility. I complete residential conveyances from start to finish, closed commercial financings, performed legal research, incorporated companies, and was involved in client meetings. The lawyers were supportive and provided guidance when needed. By the end of summer, I not only gained an exceptional grasp of the basics of business law, but also invaluable practice tips. The lawyers at Stirling genuinely want to set their students up for success. They are supportive, understanding, and patient. If you are a law student seeking exposure to business law and want great mentorship, I strongly recommend Stirling to you.”

“Working at Stirling was a fantastic introduction to a career in law during my 1L summer. I appreciated how the small firm environment allowed me to develop relationships with colleagues quickly and provided me with exposure to the full life-span of diverse files such as franchise transactions, refinancing agreements, and property transfers. Stirling also provided excellent mentorship opportunities. David and Warren were patient teachers who dedicated generous amounts of time to advance my understanding of both business law and the business of law. I would strongly recommend Stirling LLP to any law student or new lawyer looking to gain experience in business law.”
