Jay Holland shares career advice to lawyers recently promoted to partner

When asked to provide advice to lawyers who have recently been promoted to partner, JGL’s Jay Holland shared this insight:

“My one tip to junior partners upon making partner is this: Do not forget from where you came. Do not be so enamored with your new status such that you fail to continue to treat those junior and senior to you with respect and consideration. You deserve to feel confident and proud; do not allow that pride to morph into arrogance. Hard work, intelligence and the ability to connect with colleagues and clients are the attributes which surely resulted in your promotion. Continue what you have been doing, do not let up. But sprinkle your promotion with a healthy dose of humility.” 

Several attorneys weighed in with advice in the subscription based Law 360 article, Welcome to the Club: Advice from Old to New Partners.
