025: How to Hire a Law Firm Associate (then and now…)
I was recently asked in the Building a Law Firm Facebook Group about when I decided it was the right time to hire my first law firm associate, and if I would use those same criteria again to decide when to hire a law firm associate now.
After thinking about it for about 5 seconds I thought to myself “this would be a great topic for a podcast!”
And here we are.
A couple of notes here to try to get you to listen in, if you were on the fence.
I talk about not just what the criteria are for hiring, but lessons learned from my first hires and how that has affected the way I’d hire a law firm associate today (here’s a hint – it’s going to take A LOT for me to hire a law firm associate).
Enjoy the show!
