Voice of Maslon: Julian Zebot

I can’t help but feel a bit nostalgic—after all, this weekend happens to be my ten-year law school reunion. In looking back on the past ten years, I can honestly say that I am exactly where I envisioned I would be as I graduated from law school, studied for the bar exam, and prepared to head out into the work-a-day world. In large part, that is directly attributable to the environment and culture of Maslon—something that I quickly identified as a 2L summer associate all the way back in 2002.

Unlike some law firms, Maslon takes the long view with respect to its hiring, regardless of whether the candidate is entry-level or a lateral. The firm looks for individuals who want to put down roots and build a practice with supportive and engaging colleagues. When an offer of employment is made, it is made with the expectation that, barring unforeseen circumstances, of course, the candidate, should he or she accept the offer, will stay, grow, and eventually become a partner.

Maslon is not a firm that is predicated on “renting” associates or one that views its younger attorneys as fungible commodities. Instead, it looks at its associates as future partners, and it invests in them accordingly. Having risen through the firm’s ranks from summer associate to now partner, I know for a fact that Maslon does everything it can to help its associates succeed, including by offering flexible training and mentorship programs. That is why I am still here ten years later, and it is also why I am so excited about the next ten years.
