Professional Growth and Development Partner Deborah Barnard was interviewed for a Law360 article about ways associates can demonstrate their value to a firm and stand out as future leaders while working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. The article surveyed partners at a number of major law firms, including Holland & Knight. Ms. Barnard described the importance of remaining proactive and demonstrating a willingness to be engaged with and supportive of others at a firm. Examples of ways to help range from offering ideas on a client matter to taking on pro bono work.
"[Associates can] be supportive of those they come into contact with throughout their days and make an effort to reach out to others," she said. "Everyone is likely coping with some stressors right now and as the old saying goes, 'A little kindness goes a long way.'"
