Associates are given hands-on training with an opportunity to participate actively in client work.

Upon joining the Firm, associates are assigned a mentor to help guide them through the onboarding process and to ensure a successful assimilation into the Firm.
Pathway to Partnership
At Glaser Weil, we invest in our people. The best way for an associate to become a partner is to think and act like a partner and to take a proprietary interest in the Firm’s practice. The Firm has a flexible partnership track, dependent on the particular attorney's development and contribution.
The Firm fully encourages laterals and associates, alike, to bring in new clients with the potential for growth and development.
