Mound Cotton Wollan & Greengrass LLP prides itself on its ability to develop dynamic young attorneys who become leaders in the field. This starts with MCWG’s accredited CLE program, which consists of weekly classes that teach our attorneys all of the facets of our business. Although many early assignments will involve research and writing – MCWG places a premium on our attorneys’ legal writing ability – new attorneys will also be expected to handle their own cases at an early point, under the supervision of a more senior attorney. There is no substitute for experience, and while new attorneys learn about the law and being a lawyer, they also achieve the feeling of responsibility for their own case load. New associates are not confined to the library, but rather will soon be conducting depositions, attending court, handling arbitrations and mediations, and developing client relationships early in their career. It is this unique combination of tutorial and practical experience that sets MCWG apart from other, larger New York firms.
Mound Cotton Wollan & Greengrass LLP encourages its new associates to discuss their assignments and the cases they are working on with the assigning attorneys in order to develop a “big picture” sense of how their work assists our clients. MCWG also has an open door policy that encourages new associates to speak with any attorney at any time.
Mound Cotton Wollan & Greengrass LLP maintains a competitive starting salary, which is accompanied by a benefits package that includes health care, major medical care, life insurance, disability insurance, and a 401(k) plan.
