Our clients have been telling us how important it is for them to be able to work with well-rounded lawyers—those who not only possess excellent legal skills and knowledge but also understand the business world and the client’s unique business and industry, and who focus their efforts on solutions that meet the client’s legal and business objectives. Internally, the generation of associates entering and coming up through the law firm ranks today is looking for greater development, more transparency, alternative paths, and a better sense of where they stand on the development spectrum. The complementary needs of our clients and lawyers led us to develop the CareeRS program.

CareeRS is Reed Smith’s competency-based career development program. It is designed to provide our lawyers with the transparency, development opportunities and support needed to achieve career satisfaction and success at Reed Smith, and enables the firm to provide the best legal representation to its clients.
