Associate Development: Optional or Essential?

By Tom Garberson, Esq.

Developing, training, and retaining associates can be a challenging and time-consuming process that draws focus away from cases, clients, and business development. However, it is vital to the strength and longevity of any law firm. The process is a two-way street, requiring a commitment from both the associate and the firm. While an active mentoring program may not immediately generate revenue, it enhances the firm’s work product and promotes team building. In the long run, it will result in practical benefits for your practice.

This article addresses the issue of professional development from an associate’s perspective, offering concrete suggestions for both partners and associates to promote that development.
