Integration

Upon arrival at the firm, new associates and senior counsel receive a one-on-one professional development orientation. During orientation, the attorney is introduced to the firm’s available resources, such as MCLE tracking and online/on-demand MCLE training, and is provided with an opportunity to ask questions. Lateral associates and senior counsel are paired with an integration mentor from their department to introduce them to other attorneys and to help them learn about the firm.

Training and Coaching

Loeb & Loeb offers associates  and senior counsel a variety of training and coaching resources and opportunities, including traditional classroom, practical workshop and online/on-demand formats. Training programs cover a broad range of professional skills, including those related to business development, client service, management and leadership, negotiation, oral and written communication, and ethics. In addition to professional skills training, many departments hold monthly meetings focused on practice-specific training and legal updates.

One of our innovative programs includes an annual 12-week business-development coaching program for high-potential senior associates and senior counsel. The cohort is kept small and represents participants across our U.S. offices and practices. We have partnered with the Leadership Counsel on Law Firm Diversity for its annual Pathfinder Program, offering two Loeb associates the opportunity to receive intensive leadership and business-development training alongside peers at other law firms and in-house, creating a fantastic networking potential.

The firm is committed to assisting its lawyers in meeting their MCLE requirements. MCLE credit is typically available for all of the firm’s formal training programs in states in which Loeb & Loeb is an accredited provider — California, Illinois and New York. Loeb & Loeb uses CE Manager as its MCLE management and training database. Lawyers can find jurisdictional requirements and track MCLE compliance online. Loeb & Loeb also offers its lawyers access to PLI as an additional resource to earn MCLE credit.

Mentoring

Mentoring is an essential element of Loeb & Loeb’s associate and senior counsel development program. The mentoring program does not take a one-size-fits-all approach and is structured for the individual associate. Mentor/mentee pairings are made with associate input and careful consideration of the associates’ identified professional goals. The mentor is available to provide career guidance, act as a professional resource or simply act as a confidential adviser. With the assistance of the mentor, associates develop an annual business plan, and it is the mentor’s responsibility to help the associate meet his or her specific goals. The mentor pairing is evaluated annually and changed as necessary. 

Evaluation

Associates are evaluated semiannually through midyear and year-end reviews to ensure timely feedback about an associate’s progress and development. Associates receive written feedback from partners with whom they have worked and meet in person with department chairs to discuss their progress and professional goals. Associates are also encouraged to seek informal feedback during and at the conclusion of an assigned matter.
