Nelson Mullins has named five partners and one of counsel to its 2020-2021 class of the High Potentials Program, an award-winning two-year program developed by the firm to support women attorneys as they build their practices and hone their leadership and business development skills.
The new class consists of:
Women make up just under 35% of lawyers at law firms, a Law360 report found, and their share of equity partnerships remains at 20%. To address this disparity, Nelson Mullins developed the High Potentials Program, which specifically aims to expand the business-development and leadership capabilities of its women attorneys.
The High Potentials Program includes a select group of women non-equity partners and of counsel attorneys identified by firm leadership for both their legal skills and their high potential for business development. The women work closely with dedicated successful senior sponsors, an internal business development and client relationship coach, and an external executive leadership coach to affirm their personal brands and interaction styles, raise their profiles internally and externally, develop client opportunities, and expand leadership capabilities. The program is designed to equip women attorneys to serve as leaders as they advance to the highest ranks of the firm. It has been nationally recognized for innovation by Profiles in Diversity, Chambers and Partners, and the Financial Times.
