Lateral Partners

Blank Rome understands that when we hire a lateral partner, we are making a long-term investment. We guide our lateral partners through a comprehensive integration process based on practice group support, marketing resources, and business development initiatives that is specifically tailored to their personal and professional goals.

Our collaborative integration efforts have a proven track record of success: our lateral partners generate a high percentage of their projected business goals within their first year at Blank Rome and achieve nearly 100 percent within their first three years.

Our firm’s history and culture has taught us, time and again, that our true capital is our human capital. We are extremely proud of our firm’s investment in hiring leading lateral partner talent as well as our culture of integration and inclusion.
