Daniel Switts | Transactional Associate | Los Angeles
Irell truly allows its associates to handle the most substantive work early on in their careers. Less than a year after joining the corporate group, I was negotiating one-on-one with partners at other top firms and did most of the drafting on a venture deal. Last year, I led a financing transaction from start to finish, representing a major emerging company in securing financing from some of the top players in Silicon Valley. Irell trusted me to handle all of the negotiation, drafting and client management on the deal.
