Associate Experience

FIND YOUR FIT

When you join our team as an associate, you have the opportunity to discover and unleash your legal talents before becoming a member of one of our industry groups.

Move Your Career Forward

We are committed to your growth, personal and professional. Unlike traditional lock-step systems, our competency-based, level system allows associates to advance by developing skills and meeting performance standards.

Our Lawyers Academy will educate you on a variety of essential topics. This comprehensive program covers Husch Blackwell’s culture and structure, law firm economics, associate progression and career management. The training we provide distinguishes our lawyers from their peers and will uniquely equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to succeed.

Perspective Matters

Dive into meaningful work on challenging and interesting projects. We handle important matters for clients across a broad range of industries and locations, and your perspective is important to the firm’s success. We trust and value your input and recognize your contributions on every level of a project. We understand our success is a result of our people and their distinct perspectives.

Shaping Policies and Practices

The NextGen Committee facilitates communication between the firm and its non-partner attorneys in their first 10 years of practice. The Committee provides a forum for discussion of firm policies and practices that affect associates, and is responsible for:

  1. Soliciting input on matters of importance to associates
  2. Facilitating integration between associates and various new groups
  3. Enhancing professional development and training for associates
  4. Encouraging associate participation in firm initiatives, committees and programming
  5. Assisting with the planning of firm retreats and networking events

The NextGen Committee is comprised of four sub-committees, including Client Development, Innovation, Professional Development, and Retention.
