Summer Fun 2018 at the Conkle Firm

Posted by:

Sure, we’re serious lawyers but we like to have a little fun too, especially during the summer with our law clerks.  This summer, our law student clerks joined us for a lot of hands-on, real world experience in commercial litigation, intellectual property and transactional practice.  And they still had time for some fun, including an outing to a Dodgers vs. Angels game in the Freeway Series.  We started with a limo stop for dinner at Wurstkuche in DTLA, and ended the evening with fireworks after the game.

We also attended a special evening at the Hollywood Bowl – Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, with a live orchestra and even more lively lightsabers.  The evening began with a special private dinner served at the Hollywood Bowl Volunteers Cottage, and ended with a limo ride home for our stormtroopers.

Back in the office, our lawyers and summer law clerks joined in a lark of a project that one of our attorneys, Evan Pitchford, dreamed up as an homage to the movie “Inception”.  Rather than dreams within dreams, Evan decided he wanted to create “Shirtception” – T-shirts within T-shirts.  Evan photographed himself wearing successive generations of T-shirts to organically create an infinite mirror effect of image within image of himself in his T-shirt.  When Evan was done, attorneys and our summer law clerks wanted to join in.  This photo of our attorneys and summer law clerks wearing successive generations of the T-shirts followed:

One of our clients imports kites and other toys and games, and gave our attorney Desiree Ho a couple of kites as a gift of appreciation.  As summer wound down and fall breezes picked up, a few of our attorneys decided to hold a kite-flying contest – from the roof of our building.

We can’t say exactly what next summer will bring, but we can say that we expect to have more fun.
