Lateral Integration: Coordinated and Customized

  • Mintz Levin's lateral integration program has been touted as "industry leading" and profiled in articles describing industry best practices.
  • As a firm, we are highly focused on integration for all new lateral hires. We recognize this is critical to success, and we have developed a robust program to quickly anchor and integrate all new attorneys.
  • Our administrative teams work seamlessly to onboard each lateral and develop a highly customized integration program mapping to the lateral’s LPQ.
