Morgan Lewis partner Terry Johnson was featured in a Law.com Q&A about making partner. Terry discussed the ways his mentors at Morgan Lewis supported him in moving from associate to partner.
“Transitioning from associate to partner was not the daunting challenge that one might expect in a large international law firm. If anything, my partners have gone out of their way to help ensure my success as I continue to grow and develop my practice,” Terry says in the article. “By far, the greatest influence on my path to partnership was Grace Speights, the leader of Morgan Lewis’s labor and employment practice. From the beginning, Grace took a vested interest in my career, and although she is resident in our Washington, DC, office, she consistently made herself available to mentor and guide me as a young lawyer. Grace also sought out opportunities to introduce me to key clients and for us to work together on important matters.”
