Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Our redesigned programs for attorney, paralegal and administrative mentoring address the evolving needs of our people, including minority and female employees, as they advance within the firm. Our Attorney Mentor Program gears its initiatives to associates and counsel, expanding and tailoring support throughout professional growth. Mentors help newcomers to grasp firm culture, learn time recording procedures and advocate for themselves. As mentees advance, mentors encourage involvement in professional associations, discuss business development techniques and offer guidance on specific business opportunities. Understanding that one’s needs evolve throughout career progression, our Mentoring Committee seeks to provide appropriate mentorship at each stage.
