Partner Promotion Decisions May See Long-Term Impact From 2020
Joel Carpenter was quoted in the article, "Partner Promotion Decisions May See Long-Term Impact From 2020," which was published in The American Lawyer on November 6, 2020 [sub. req.].
In the article, Joel discusses how COVID-19 has impacted hiring and advancement decisions within the firm: “The people we will be considering for partner are people that have been around long enough, so the lack of the proximity isn’t really a factor. The pandemic problem isn’t so much working and evaluating people that are already part of the team, it’s bringing on new people that’s a challenge.”
