The large, complex matters that clients characteristically bring to Simpson Thacher often require several of our practice areas to share knowledge and resources. This is a reflection of our core strength: the power of teamwork. For our junior associates, teamwork is executed in different ways:
- Our professional development philosophy is to help shape the Complete Lawyer, with an emphasis on essential skills and broad-based knowledge
- We take mentoring seriously and have institutionalized processes to make it work
- We assign offices not according to department or practice, but by individual choice
It is the nature of our law practice that demands teamwork. Whatever the subject matter and whomever the client, teamwork is the hallmark of Simpson Thacher.
