Terry Brantley Discusses Associate Hiring For The Daily Report
As law firms ramp up recruitment efforts for new associates, particularly litigators in anticipation of post-pandemic spike in disputes and trials, Terry Brantley discussed the firm’s recruitment strategy for a March 12, 2021, article in the Daily Report.
