As the Economy Reopens, McGrath North Announces Five New Associates and Four Law Clerks


McGrath North is excited to introduce its 2020 team of new associates and law clerks.  While the recent disruptions are unsettling and have created some uncertainty, McGrath North is confident in the resiliency of the economy and remains fully committed to building a talent-rich, inclusive team to serve its local, regional and national clients.

In building its team, the firm strongly believes it is important to provide early opportunities to both law students and new lawyers, so they receive practical, real-world experience to complement their high academic achievements.  The firm also has a long history of hiring both first and second-year law clerks, who then choose to join McGrath North as associates and remain to build successful careers.

As a result, the nine-person group includes five individuals who have accepted offers to join the firm as associates and who previously clerked with the firm:  two May 2020 graduates, one December 2020 graduate candidate, and two May 2021 graduate candidates.  In addition, to these five outstanding additions to the firm, the team includes four law clerks entering their second year of law school in Fall 2020.  They represent Creighton University School of Law, University of Nebraska College of Law, University of Minnesota Law School, and University of Iowa College of Law.

McGrath North strongly believes that this new team, mentored by lawyers across the firm, will help fulfill its ongoing commitment to Excellence in helping clients achieve their success and goals.
