Date: July 21, 2021: 12PM-1PM
Place: Zoom “webinar” style; only the event speakers will be on camera.
Description: Recent data suggests there is skyrocketing demand for lawyers looking to make a career change. The FBA and Honigman LLP will host a virtual panel discussion to explore a discrete segment of the legal market: former government lawyers who successfully transitioned to private practice. The Panelists will discuss their career path, journey to private practice, and considerations for lawyers looking to transition their practice from public to private or private to public. The panel will further explore how working on the “inside” can help shape your practice on the outside.
Panel: Matthew Schneider, former United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan; Mark Burton, former Chief Strategist, Executive Office of Governor Whitmer; Alex Parrish, former Assistant to the General Counsel, US Department of the Army; Mahja Zeon, former Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, Vanderburgh and Marion County Prosecutor’s Offices. Moderated by Adam Wenner, former Career Law Clerk to the Hon. Nancy G. Edmunds (EDMI), and Shannon Duggan, former Law Clerk to the Hon. Gerald J. Pappert (EDPA).
