07.29.10

Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP hosted approximately 75 junior staffers on July 23, as part of the Firm's 14th annual celebration of "Take Your Child to Work Day."

The event, held in the Firm's Dallas and Houston offices, gave children between the ages of 8 and 18 the chance to spend the day at work with their parents, socializing with attorneys over pizza and learning about Gardere's commitment to the community.

"This isn't just a 'Career Day,'" says Steve Good, Gardere's managing partner. "Not only do we want them to see what their parents do all day, but we also want them to see the importance of continuing their education and all the career possibilities that lie before them. We also want them to learn about the importance of balancing work with family, and how companies such as ours support the community by providing free legal services, holding our Annual Gardere MLK Jr. Oratory Competition and other events."

In addition to shadowing their parents for part of the day, the children had time for crafts, including a T-shirt design contest in which the winner designs the T-shirt for next year's "Take Your Child to Work Day" event. In Dallas, the children also took in some face painting and participated in a Wii Bowling tournament.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
