The Tampa Bay Business Journal recently held its 2016 Legal Roundtable, where Tampa Managing Partner, Alan Higbee, along with other senior and managing partners from other firms, shared their perspective on millennials who want to make partner and the evolution of young lawyers.
“I’m the father of one of those millennial lawyers,” said Higbee. “…When the economy changed…[and] lawyers came out of law school and there were no legal jobs, people got stone-cold serious about the jobs they were taking. They may all work differently, but you should not assume for one second that it’s not serious. Because they know there’s a group behind them that would love to take their place, and they’re being really, really conscientious.”
