Arrested Development: Law Firm Strategic Planning Around Junior Partners (Breakout)
Suffice it to say, the past twenty-four months have proven especially challenging for many junior law firm partners. Thanks to a global pandemic, many individuals struggled to establish a core book of business or build upon personal brands within an ever-evolving remote work environment and tepid business climate. Recent Harvard Law School research further attests to a generational shift among legal professionals toward greater work-life balance, alternative career pathways, and improved social awareness on the part of one’s employer, colleagues, or self. Viewed through a comprehensive lens, such headwinds augur a potential headache for law firm leaders and professional development peers. This session examines junior partner performance and professional development strategies for the modern COVID era. How does one address common professional, practical, and philosophical sentiments endemic to this key demographic?
