Salary, Mentoring, & Evaluations
Salary and Benefits
Associates receive a highly competitive salary and are provided an attractive benefits package.
Training and Mentoring
In all of our practice groups, associates work directly with partners and receive training through hands-on experience and immediate feedback on their work product. In addition, all associates are paired with a partner mentor who develops a personalized approach to each associate’s training and development. Some of our larger practice groups also have regular professional development and training programs designed to enhance technical skills and develop specific abilities. Our firm pays for Continuing Legal Education programs, and we encourage our associates to identify programs that address areas of interest and relevance to their particular practices.
Associate performance is evaluated annually, and salary increases are based upon individual achievement and progress. The Group Coordinating Committee, made up of attorneys from all of our offices and practice groups, is responsible for collecting comments from all partners about the associates with whom they have worked, reviewing all of those comments and other information, and arriving at consensus evaluations of associate performance. Each year, every associate will meet with a member of the Committee and the associate’s mentor to discuss the associate’s performance and to offer guidance on future professional development goals.
