We provide an extensive training program for first and second-year associates. First-year associate training covers fundamental topics including professionalism, work organization, time keeping, working with staff, policies and procedures, ethics, professional responsibility, firm economics and marketing. Second-year associate training involves more directed and concentrated sessions in the transactional and litigation practice areas. In addition, litigation associates receive training by assuming responsibility for our pro bono cases.
The firm’s trainers include some of our most respected senior partners, the men and women who have experienced 30 or more years before the courts of the region and the nation. The best training comes from being an apprentice to the masters, and our masters look forward to sharing their knowledge, wisdom and understanding with the masters of the future.
