New Series – Alumni Spotlight

Starting this week, the OCPD Bulletin will feature a regular spotlight of a WCL alumnus/alumna.  This week, we are featuring Greg Seidell, a 2009 graduate who is an associate in the Investment Management group of Seward & Kissel LLP.  Seward & Kissel regularly participates in WCL’s Fall Recruitment Program as part of the New York Interview Program (NYIP) for hiring in its New York office.  In addition to participating in NYIP this year, the firm will collect resumes for its D.C. office.
