Mr. Armoo recently graduated with a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree from Wake Forest Law.

Prior to coming to Wake Forest Law, Mr. Armoo graduated with Honours from Leeds Metropolitan University.
What have you been up to since your time at Wake Forest?
After graduating from Wake Forest in May, 2013, I moved to New York with the aim of finding legal internship or employment.
Where are you currently working? What do you do?
In July, 2013, I started interning as a legal intern with the General Counsel/President and Executive Vice President at the Corporate Office of NUS Consulting Group (“NUS”), an International Energy Consulting Company. At NUS, my responsibilities include reviewing and drafting international and national contracts, and carrying out research for pre-negotiation of these contracts. These contracts come in different forms, such as Energy Management Services Contracts, Brokerage/Supplier Contracts, and Non-Disclosure/Confidentiality Agreements.
However in November, I start a new employment with a New York corporate law firm, Bryant Rabbino, LL.P., where I will be working on corporate transactions.

which I believe has better equipped me with the necessary skills needed to start practicing in this area. My LL.M. degree will serve to further prove my interest in this area of practice to employers. Continue reading »
