Antonina “Nina” Prestigiacomo (1L) will be doing a summer internship in the tax litigation department at Baker & McKenzie in Chicago.
The tax litigation department represents clients before the U.S. Tax court, U.S. District and Bankruptcy Courts, U.S. Court of Federal Claims and the U.S. Court of Appeals.
“I anticipate working long hours, doing a lot of research, and brief work. I will also be helping with some pro bono cases,” said Prestigiacomo.
Baker and McKenzie, the law firm for which Prestigiacomo will be interning, is one of the premier firms in the world.
“ I feel incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity this summer to not only spend time in and around one of the most well-known and respected law firms in the world, but also to learn from some of the brightest minds in the legal community,” Prestigiacomo added. “While I’m honored to have been selected, I’m also anxious to get started and see what the life of an intern will be like at Baker & McKenzie.”
