Career _Chow _320
Marianne Chow
Corporate Associate 

"The goal of the firm's career development program is to cultivate effective, well-rounded lawyers.  One of the reasons I chose Paul, Weiss was because of the Corporate Department's unassigned program, where junior associates are assigned to deals within different corporate practice groups for their first two years at the firm.  It was important to me that I gain a broad-based experience in different aspects of corporate law early on in my professional development and that I have an opportunity to explore the areas of corporate law I was interested in before being assigned to a specific group.  The unassigned program also helped me build relationships with associates and partners from different practice areas with whom I continue to work even after I was assigned to the financing group. 

As part of the career development program, the firm also provides a career continuum that outlines the types of analytical, research, drafting, negotiation, deal management and other skills that one is expected to achieve in order to transition from a junior to a midlevel to a senior associate.  The career continuum serves as a professional navigation tool for me - helping me take stock of both the progress I have made so far as well as showing me the skill sets and experience I should aim to attain so that I can advance to the next level."
