MG&C seeks to hire lawyers who have demonstrated exceptional academic performance and who have a professional vision of developing their practice. We also consider interpersonal skills, community and civic involvement, written and oral communication skills, ethics and values, integrity, and a passion for client service.
During their first few years, new associates work directly with partner mentors attending trials, hearings, depositions, client meetings, seminars, and conferences to gain experience and exposure. MG&C believes that it is critical to provide associates with practical experience and frequent client contact early in their careers. We make a conscious effort to give our associates significant responsibility for cases and matters commensurate with their training and level of experience.
In addition to providing the tools associates need to succeed in their professional careers, MG&C recognizes the importance of providing frequent feedback as well as structured performance evaluations. Each associate receives an annual written evaluation in a one-on-one meeting with his or her partner mentor, where performance is discussed and goals are identified.
