The Transition from Government to Private Practice
The McCormick Group presents:
"The Transition from Government to Private Practice"
A change of presidential administration is often an opportune time for government lawyers to consider entering private practice in a law firm. But making that change continues to be more challenging as law firms face an increasingly competitive environment, exacerbated this year by the impact of Covid-19. As a result, those lawyers seeking to join law firms have to make sure that they can make the best possible case for their candidacy.
In this informative webinar, Business Development and Executive Coach Stewart Hirsch, Esq. of Strategic Relationships LLC and Dave Ris of The McCormick Group will discuss challenges and strategies to all of the aspects of the transition from government to private practice, encompassing everything from resumes and LinkedIn profiles to the value of a business development plan and tactics for interviewing. Topics we plan to address include:
• Current Outlook for Government Lawyers Entering Private Practice
• How can Candidates Improve their Resumes and LinkedIn profiles?
• Defining your Value Proposition
• Developing a Business Plan
• Recusals and Ethics
• What to Expect in the Interview Process
• Why a Recruiter?
• Why a Business Development Coach?
Stewart is a former firm and in-house lawyer with more than 25 years of experience coaching lawyers on developing business in law firms. Dave is an executive recruiter in the legal and government relations area, with a particular specialty in assisting senior-level government officials to transition to the private sector.
The webinar will be moderated by Steve Nelson, Executive Principal at The McCormick Group.
