Berger Montague strives to develop well-rounded attorneys who are provided opportunities for professional growth and success.
To that end, Berger Montague has a multifaceted mentorship program in which each associate is assigned a shareholder mentor to help guide the associate through the Firm’s career development checklist. The Firm development checklist is aimed at ensuring that associates are honing the skills and obtaining the experiences necessary to reach practice-specific goals. New hires are also paired with an associate to help navigate the ins and outs of associate life within the Firm.
In addition to Firmwide access to traditional CLE programs, associates are also provided in-house training sessions run both by senior members of the Firm and fellow associates aimed at topics that are of interest to the associates, relevant to their professional development, and which provide practical advice on navigating their careers both professionally and personally (i.e., work/life balance issues). The Firm also sponsors social events and activities for the Firm’s associates.
