March 06, 2013

“New Ground in Talent Development,” which was published in the March 1, 2013, issues of The Recorder, details some of the programs O’Melveny & Myers LLP has in place to support the careers of its lawyers, including a full-time career advisor and talent development group. "At a big picture level, we feel strongly that we have a role in helping to create opportunities for our attorneys at all levels to reach their potential and become better lawyers and better professionals," Benjamin Bradshaw, O'Melveny's talent development partner, said in the article. “That's our mandate. And the firm takes this responsibility seriously." The piece also quoted James Moore, O’Melveny’s career advisor, who said that coaching is on the rise. "There is significant demand here. I have seen slightly over 300 associates and counsel since I've taken on the role as career development adviser," Moore said in the article. One of those associates was O’Melveny’s Matthew Cohen, who talked about seeking Moore’s guidance when transferring to the Firm’s Washington, DC, office.
