He represents both individuals and corporations in class actions, mass torts, consumer protection suits, contract disputes and shareholders' rights cases.

Carolyn Summers, an Ivy League MBA, was surprised when a headhunter contacted her about a job at a law office. "I thought, `Why is a law firm interested in me?' " she said in an interview. "The idea of what I was - which was a financial and business manager - being at a law firm, didn't really click." Even after interviewing at the firm, where the proposed job was explained to her as similar to that of a chief operating officer, or COO, Summers was skeptical. "I had a whole lot of hesitations about the idea of working at a law firm," she said.

With ball games, barbecues and boat trips, area law firms have wooed another batch of summer associates -- in hopes they will stay on. It's a time-honored tradition that's evolved with economic times and the competition for good candidates. But now, sandwiched between crab feasts and casino nights, happy hours, golf games, and even a tour of the King Tut exhibit at Philadelphia's Franklin Institute, there is more legal work than ever before. "Every year we seem to ratchet down the number of social events," said Jason M. St. John, head of Baltimore law firm Saul Ewing LP's summer program.

"I love it. Did you try it? The artists show you how to use all these little transmitters," said museum board member Marcy Sagel.
