Advancement & Performance Reviews

Prior to membership, there are three developmental stages for attorneys: associatesenior associate and managing associate. An associate’s progression from one stage to the next is contingent upon a formalized competency-based evaluation process, which provides a clear roadmap for professional development. In addition to the evaluation’s formal components, attorneys are encouraged to speak candidly with a member or managing associate, receive feedback and set priorities for the coming year. Finally, because we promote on the basis of demonstrated proficiencies and not years of practice, some attorneys rise through the ranks faster than others.

Membership

While the path to membership may be accomplished in the traditional timeframe of seven years, the firm provides alternative advancement models for attorneys in need of greater flexibility and whose accomplishments warrant recognition beyond the narrow title of “member.” We take a pragmatic, individualized approach in helping these attorneys chart a career trajectory.

Bonus Programs

We have two bonus programs, one based on objective criteria, the other on subjective considerations. The associate objective bonus program rewards attorneys on a quarterly basis for recording hours billable to FBT clients.

The subjective bonus program rewards attorneys for making significant contributions to the firm’s current or future profits. Other considerations include productivity (with respect to billable hours) as well as mentoring, pro bono work, marketing and business development activities, outstanding client service and the generation of new business.

Professional Development

For laterals joining at the associate level, we offer a “Fundamentals” curriculum that imparts best practices in a variety of legal disciplines. Supplementing our “Fundamentals” curriculum is a competency-based training program taught by nationally recognized speakers and leaders within the firm. Here, the emphasis is not on concepts, but on professional/technical skills and ownership behaviors. New associates learn to take initiative, prioritize, collaborate with their coworkers, and cultivate

In addition, each of the firm’s industry teams and practice groups hold regular meetings and in-office seminars. Led by Frost Brown Todd members, these subject-focused seminars address recent developments in the law and effective strategies for helping clients navigate these new exigencies. Each team has specific benchmarks for skill development at each level, ensuring that associates are on track and have a varied and manageable workload.

Marketing and business development support are provided as well. Our Marketing Department helps attorneys identify client engagement opportunities and develop marketing collateral for pitches and presentations.
