Tannenbaum Helpern Welcomes New York City Bar Association Diversity Fellowship Summer Law Students

06.04.2024  •  Press Release

New York, NY, June 4, 2024—Tannenbaum Helpern is pleased to welcome summer Fellows Sarah Chan and Amy Kong, who join the Firm through the New York City Bar Association (“NYCBA”) Diversity Fellowship Program. The Program provides first-year law students who have encountered barriers on their path to a legal career with the opportunity to work at a New York City-area law firm. Throughout their fellowship, Sarah and Amy will work with and learn from each of Tannenbaum Helpern’s core practice groups, participate in Firm events, participate in client meetings, draft transactional documents, and observe mediations and oral arguments. Sarah and Amy will have the opportunity to explore the Firm’s commercial practice areas and develop practical skills as they continue on their path towards becoming well-trained attorneys.

“We are very excited to welcome Sarah and Amy to Tannenbaum Helpern for their summer fellowship,” said Partner Carl Regelmann, who is overseeing the Fellows’ experience at the Firm. “Many attorneys find that early law firm experience is helpful in determining which areas of law excite them, and we believe an experience like NYCBA’s Diversity Fellowship Program to be a key element to career development. We look forward to creating a meaningful experience for Sarah and Amy.”

Stacey Usiak, Partner and Co-Chair of Tannenbaum Helpern’s DEI Committee, added, “We are proud to participate in the City Bar’s Diversity Fellowship Program, which aligns with our continued and consistent efforts to support and encourage DEI initiatives throughout our Firm. Welcome, Sarah and Amy!”
