Women’s Bar Association Program Offers Tips to Small Firm Associates
February 19, 2014
Just beginning to carve your path as a new associate in a small firm? Still learning to navigate the firm’s structure and protocol? Have a question and don’t know who to ask? Then the Women’s Bar Association has the program for you.
On March 6 moderator Daniel Mills, assistant director of the D.C. Bar’s Practice Management Advisory Service, will lead a panel on “Succeeding as a Small Firm Associate.” The program will address the best and worst things an associate can do at a small firm, and how an associate can market for and bring positive change to a small firm. This forum also will discuss small firm dynamics (the power structure and the associate), as well as questions an associate should never ask and questions he or she needs to ask.
Panelists include Kellie Budd, an associate at Doumar Martin PLLC; Paulette Chapman, a partner at Koonz, McKenney, Johnson, DePaolis & Lightfoot, L.L.P.; and Elaine L. Fitch, a partner at Kalijarvi, Chuzi, Newman & Fitch, P.C.
The program takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. at Jenner & Block LLP, 1099 New York Avenue NW, suite 900. It is sponsored by the WBA’s Solo & Small Practice Forum and Young Lawyers Committee.
