Get to know Michelle a bit better:

How long have you worked at Boylan Code?
I started at what was then Boylan Brown in 1997 as a Litigation Paralegal, and then moved into Systems Administration in 1998. I moved to Massachusetts in 2001 but came back to Rochester and Boylan Brown in 2003, working in the Residential Lending Department. I moved back to Massachusetts (yes, again!) in 2006 before coming back to Rochester and Boylan Code in 2016 to take on my current role as a Paralegal in the Commercial Lending Department!

On any given day, what does your work routine look like? What do you do/focus on?
I do any of the following on any given day: communicate with clients, coordinate commercial closings, draft loan documents for commercial closings, attend commercial closings and review and organize due diligence materials. Basically, try to keep everyone organized and on track to close in a timely manner.

What part of your job do you enjoy the most?
I love the fact that I am constantly learning and growing in my job. I learn something new with every file I work on. I also work for great people that have entrusted me to challenge myself and learn new positions within the firm.Read More »

#MeetUsMonday: Susan Gross

Susan Gross will celebrate 30 years at Boylan Code on August 1, 2018! Sue is the Director of Human Resources and Continuing Legal Education.

Get to know Sue a bit better:

On any given day, what does your work routine look like? What do you do/focus on?
No two days are ever alike!  My primary focus is human resources, which entails managing our staff and working with the Executive Committee to ensure workload balance so all of the firm’s work is completed as efficiently as possible.  I handle the firm’s employee benefits, recruiting, payroll, and employee wellness initiatives (which include CPR/AED training, our annual flu shot clinic, Employee Assistance Program, etc.).  I also oversee the firm’s activities as an accredited provider of continuing legal education in NYS and help to ensure our attorneys adhere to their individual CLE requirements.  Finally, I serve on the firm’s Social Committee, helping to plan fun events for our employees.

What part of your job do you enjoy the most?
I would have to say that the best part of my job is spending my days with an incredible group of people who make Boylan Code a wonderful place to work.  Let’s face it — work becomes a sort of “home away from home” – and that is very true for me at Boylan Code.  In many ways the firm feels like family, especially after spending more than half my life working here.

Boylan Code Client News: Albert Paley

ROC Artist Captures Breckenridge Beauty in Sculpture- Install of Syncline in Breckenridge, Colorado

Breckenridge is the first Colorado town to feature a permanent installation by renowned contemporary sculptor Albert Paley, whose work graces cultural art centers from the Smithsonian Institution to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The 24-foot-tall, azure blue, abstract steel sculpture is fabricated from hydraulically formed steel plates. It takes its name from a geological formation, using intersecting convex and concave planes to represent the irregular contours of the mountain milieu, replete with the interplay of slope and light.
​”The emphasis of this sculpture is the focus on the identity of the mountain topography, skiing and winter sports.  The sculptures gestural concave and convex forms refer to the mountain and valley contours. The gestural angle of the sculpture makes reference to the mountains various inclines and slopes.  The silhouettes of these forms are basically curved and “S” shaped arabesques – visually one of the most dramatic visual elements reflecting balance and counter balance of skiing. These contours refer to the lines of force and the trails left by the skier.  This lyric pattern emphasizes the play of line on the snow covered mountain slopes.  Thus the sculptures curvilinear interlacing emphasizes contour and incline. Besides the skiers physical imprint in the snow these lines also reflect the psychological and experiential reality of those involved. Between the two major concave and convex forms there is a series of tumbling or cascading folded metal forms. These are to suggest the experience of skiing – a fluid act of passage or time sequence.  Anticipation, experience and memory are implied within this visual dialogue.”   Albert Paley
