Katz, Marshall and Banks is excited to announce that, Nicolas O’Connor has been hired as a Law Clerk.
Prior to joining the KMB, Mr. O'Connor worked at Akin Gump in New York as a Summer Associate, where he handled immigration, gender-based violence, and bankruptcy matters.
Mr. O'Connor is a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, where he received his J.D. earlier in 2020. While at Georgetown, he served as a research assistant, conducting analysis on banking and mortgage regulations.
Before going to law school, Mr. O'Connor co-founded EduAmistad Ecuador, a nonprofit which provides comprehensive health and English education to at-risk youth in and around Guayaquil, Ecuador. While the organization is currently on hiatus due to the pandemic, its ultimate goal is to promote skills-based health education in collaboration with local governments and to develop a long-lasting cultural exchange between U.S. university students and students in Ecuador about health and health education.
Mr. O'Connor also volunteers with the Washington Lawyers' Committee's Workers' Rights Clinic, and is a fluent Spanish speaker.
