The Connecticut Defense Lawyers Association (CDLA) presented Robinson+Cole lawyer Stephen O. Clancy with its Rising Star award during the organization’s fall meeting on November 12, 2018 at the Inn at Middletown. The CDLA Rising Star award recognizes a civil defense lawyer who is truly “one to watch” because of his or her contributions to the profession, the civil defense bar, and the community, and who shows promise of leadership in the future. Steve is a member of the firm's Insurance + Reinsurance Group.
The firm was featured in the article “How a Big Law Firm Is Linking Parental Leave, Mentorship,” published in the Connecticut Law Tribune on November 13, 2018. The piece details Robinson+Cole’s enhanced focus on mentoring, which was the overarching theme emphasized during the recent all-attorney retreat. Managing Partner, Stephen E. Goldman, described how the firm is going beyond the traditional mentoring model to include reverse mentoring and a new mentoring program for attorneys taking parental leave as a means of furthering retention. "’Mentoring and the retention of attorneys is intertwined, Goldman said. ‘People want to stay with us because they feel there is a path for them to succeed at Robinson & Cole.’”
