Kate Dougherty, an associate in the corporate group, said the event was “a great way to connect with colleagues near and far during the COVID lockdown.” Litigation associate Maria Brusco added, “flower arranging is an art that is closely tied to the space where the arrangement is displayed. Because I spend so much time in my home office, it was really nice to create something beautiful for my space with my colleagues.”
