I was drawn to Dovel & Luner’s fierceness and unique client value proposition when I interviewed with them back in 2010.  I ended up declining their offer to explore other career paths.  But after challenging myself for years in several in-house counsel roles, I wanted to take on a new challenge.  I wanted to go back into litigation and get substantive trial experience.  But I realized that while many other firms talk about being built for trial, almost none of them really mean it.  I only knew of one firm that actually built its entire practice around success at trial: Dovel & Luner.  So I called Sean, told him what I was thinking, and the rest is history.
