Notice to Search Firms

Verrill does not accept unsolicited resumes from placement agencies unless the agency and Verrill have previously entered into a written agreement that is in effect at the time of the submission.

This policy is designed to provide clarity and certainty to placement agencies, Verrill, and our recruits, including by way of example, in situations where we have received duplicative submissions from multiple sources. Accordingly, if a placement agency submits a resume without a prior signed agreement with us, we will not be bound by that agency’s terms, or recognize any claim that may be made by that agency. If you represent a placement agency and wish to negotiate such an agreement with us, please contact our Assistant Director of Talent Acquisition and Development, Sarah Lacombe.

2025 Summer Associate

The Verrill Summer Associate Program is a comprehensive, 10-week program for law students designed to give a realistic picture of life at Verrill providing summer associates with the information they need to determine whether Verrill is the place for them after graduation.

Click to apply via email.

Our program provides summer associates with the opportunity to get to know each other and all firm members by hosting a variety of in-person and virtual social events that are consistent with our culture and wellbeing.

Since most of our first-year associates are drawn from our Summer Associate Program, it is the heart of our recruiting efforts. The size of our collaborative summer class is designed to meet our long-term hiring needs without having to compete for a limited number of positions.

Verrill’s summer program offers real-life experience to understand the day-to-day life of a typical associate at the firm. Summer associates will rotate through a variety of practice groups over the course of the summer and enjoy individualized opportunities. The program is based in our Boston and Portland offices; however, summer associates receive challenging assignments from members of all offices. Substantive assignments will involve significant research and writing, as well as opportunities to observe hearings, trials, closings, and client meetings. By shadowing our attorneys with clients and other counsel, summer associates are exposed to the collaborative team effort and challenging work that distinguishes Verrill.

Each summer associate is assigned a peer contact and mentor to provide guidance in their transition from law school to private practice. Throughout the program, summer associates receive feedback on each project they have been assigned. At mid-summer and summer's end, each summer associate meets with the Chair of the Hiring Committee to receive feedback on their progress and provide us with feedback on the practices in which they are most interested.
