Mary and I shared ideas and edited assignments as a team, and she gave me a lot of honest and genuine feedback. I also got a lot of practical knowledge and skills. Communicating with clients, opposing counsel, and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office — these are really important skills whether I work for a firm or myself.
