We recognize the changing challenges and triumphs associates experience as they become more senior. To help our associates at important transition points in their careers, we developed STBAdvance for associates in their third and fifth years.

STBAdvance kicks off with an off-site conference and is combined with education, mentoring and coaching throughout the year to help accelerate the development of leadership behaviors and next-level skills. Some of the topics of focus at these conferences are:

  • How to think strategically about clients’ businesses.
  • How to master the skills needed to achieve goals and be leaders at Simpson Thacher, and in the legal industry.
  • How to develop management skills and style.
  • Setting goals for the short, medium and long term.
