“We’re focused on [relationships] at our firm within our practice groups, our firm as a whole and with our clients, because we feel strongly that these relationships are so vital and we want to maintain those relationships long term.”
“The Millennial generation has an intense interest in doing good for the client, and they’re expected to perform with excellence to keep that client. So if they’re working on the file under the supervision of another attorney, it’s smart to discuss the outcome and why we’re doing this. I also think that mentorship is really critical, because again you’re developing those relationships within the firm, with clients and with your connections, and there’s so much you just can’t get out of a law school textbook. If you have a good mentor, that is experience you cannot buy.”
“In our firm we value mentorship and support; it’s not billable but it’s important. We have programs that focus on how to make ourselves better in terms of sponsorship. In fact, we just hosted a women’s event in our office this month that coached on this important topic for our clients and our attorneys.”
