Coaching and Mentoring

We strive for an engaged workforce and workplace where each lawyer is highly skilled, engaged, productive, and satisfied with his or her career. Our strong coaching and mentoring program is a cornerstone of an engaged workplace built upon the core principles of cooperation, enthusiasm, friendship, loyalty, and commitment. With this focus, we develop successful lawyers and teams, which translates to success for our clients.

Prior to arrival, new and lateral associates are assigned both a partner coach and an associate mentor, usually drawn from the associate’s practice group. Partner coaches advise on long-range career planning, skill development, workflow management, and fostering strong working relationships with peers and supervisors. Associate mentors are typically mid- to senior-level associates who provide support for new associates to hit the ground running, become productive contributors, and successfully integrate into the Stoel Rives culture. We encourage coaches and mentors to meet with their mentee at least monthly, and each relationship is provided with a budget to support a variety of mentoring activities.

The firm has a Firm-wide Coaching and Mentoring Committee and office-based Coaching and Mentoring Committees that monitor and evaluate the overall program for effectiveness. Those Committees also oversee the process of assigning coaches and mentors. They also monitor coach and mentor relationships on an ongoing basis to ensure they are successful and meeting the associates’ professional and practice development goals. On an annual basis, we honor individuals with Coach and Mentor of the Year awards to highlight and recognize those who have made significant contributions to the coaching and mentoring program that year.
