Attorney Development & Training

Honigman GPS

Your success is the Firm's success. The Attorney Development & Recruitment team is dedicated to ensuring that our litigators have state-of-the-art tools necessary for their professional development. Our GPS (Growth-Professionalism-Success) Core Competency Framework provides a road map for success by articulating the skills to be mastered at each level of development.

Our training programs are facilitated both by Honigman partners and by external, national subject-matter experts and are part of our concerted effort to prepare associates to assume significant responsibility at an early stage in their careers. Trained mentors also work to accelerate associates' integration into the Firm and provide support until they are promoted to non-percentage partner.

Each department maintains a unique training checklist that benchmarks both the substantive and business development skills necessary to be a successful Honigman attorney. Associates are given hands-on experience and receive significant responsibility on important matters from the outset of their careers. Some of our recent training programs include:

  • Trial Advocacy
  • Communicate to Influence: Oral Advocacy and Presentation Skills
  • Negotiation Skills for Litigators
  • Business Etiquette: The Rules of Engagement
  • Making Rain YOUR Way
  • Individual Writing Coaching
  • The Honigman Business Fundamentals Institute

Honigman's Department of Attorney Development & Recruitment also offers Executive Coaching for individualized career development. Coaching equips our attorneys to build on their strengths and neutralize "blind spots" that can compromise results and hinder success.
