Associates are assigned to a particular office and practice area within the firm, with individual preferences accommodated where possible. Department chairs and attorneys provide mentorship and direction on project-based tasks while the Orientation Committee helps with professional guidance. Associates are closely supervised and carefully reviewed during their first few years and highly encouraged to attend outside educational seminars. In-house training is provided not only in substantive practice areas but also in developing comprehensive strategies for the associate’s long-term professional success. We are proud of our exceptionally high retention rates for new lawyers, who often view their decision to join Pullman & Comley as a career commitment.
While most of our associates start their careers at Pullman & Comley directly from law school, many of our experienced attorneys, both partner and associate, join the firm after working in other legal environments. We are always interested in adding outstanding talent to our team, and we hire accomplished attorneys at various levels of experience.
Pullman & Comley provides all new attorneys with the necessary training and mentoring to fully integrate them into the firm. We have many formal and informal programs in place that provide opportunities to meet attorneys throughout the firm.
