Professional Development

The firm places tremendous emphasis on the professional development and growth of every single one of our employees.We don’t just say that, we live it. Training and developing our employees is at the heart of everything we do, because the professional growth of our people drives the growth and success of the firm overall.

We are committed to cultivating development opportunities for each employee, and helping them achieve targeted career goals. As we continue to expand and serve a growing number of clients, this commitment to development is more important than ever.

We have a robust associate mentoring program, which is structured so that each associate is paired with a partner so that they can gain knowledge and insight as they grow to be the firm’s future leaders. The goals of the program are to help our associates develop their careers while fostering self-confidence, legal skills, the ability to market themselves and their practice, develop institutional savvy as well as strengthen their connections within the firm.

Our signature GOAL Program (which stands for Go Out and Learn/Lead) encourages all attorneys and staff to identify a professional goal or learning objective each year. The firm then supports their plan through providing marketing and human resources support, covering expenses for courses, certifications, registrations, etc. Goals have included public speaking and time management training, business development coaching and language lessons among others – anything for the betterment of people and how we approach our clients’ work.

We have developed a number of initiatives to give our lawyers the tools to succeed in lead generation and client retention. The cornerstone of these efforts is a business development Pipeline Program. Participants in this program, who range from first-year associates to senior partners, meet together monthly to brainstorm leads, discuss tactics and outreach, and report back on their progress and roadblocks. The program also focuses on best practices in cross-selling, client service and in-person and online networking. The Pipeline program strives to provide our lawyers with the critical skills they will need today and tomorrow to generate new business and develop stronger professional relationships. The program has led to our lawyers obtaining new engagements and strengthened relationships in just one year since its inception, and we look forward to our lawyers’ continued success.
