Whether working in-house or in a law firm, continuous learning is essential to good lawyering. Now more than ever, lawyers at all levels need to be intentional about their professional development. ATSG delivers tested training to make your lawyers productive and profitable members of your team.

Building Muscle Series I: Junior Attorneys

Moving from law school to law practice is a huge transition. For many junior lawyers, working in a law firm or legal department after law school may be their first job. ATSG can work with your organization to create an effective onboarding program to jump start the careers of your younger lawyers and integrate them quickly. A key deliverable is a personalized career plan with goals and action steps tied to their development of key substantive and self-management skills.

Lisa presented repeatedly on the topic of strategic career planning to an audience of in-house counsel when I was the Director of Legal Education for the association. Every one of her presentations received rave reviews. Many people attended year after year, knowing that they would always leave with valuable take-aways for their careers. Lisa knows the industry well and she’s a pleasure to work with.

“Lisa designed and delivered our 18-month leadership development program for high potential women attorneys. She ensured the program was tailored to our firm’s culture and participants’ needs. Lisa developed the curriculum, delivered the presentations and provided one-on-one consulting to class members to help them develop and implement individualized career and leadership plans. The program was completed in June 2016 and reviews by both firm management and class participants were outstanding.”
