Attorney Development Committee

About Us

The Attorney Development Committee at Snell & Wilmer consists of a large group of representative associates and partners across our offices whose primary goal is to create, manage, and improve professional development opportunities for our attorneys from the first day they join the firm. The Attorney Development Committee makes every effort to provide new and lateral attorneys with the tools necessary to thrive and enjoy the practice of law at Snell & Wilmer. For associates, we commit to providing the resources necessary to assist them to develop into self-sustaining partners.

The Committee meets frequently to identify, develop, and monitor initiatives to meet core objectives, so that new and lateral attorneys who join Snell & Wilmer may reach their full potential, both personally and professionally. With the assistance and leadership of the Attorney Development Department, the Committee coordinates with practice group leadership and other administrative departments to best identify and address the unique needs of new associates and lateral attorneys. Committee members also serve as a point of contact for attorneys within their offices to communicate concerns to firm leadership. In doing so, the Attorney Development Committee has the full support of the firm’s Executive Committee.
