In the article, Hazen offers advice to associates wishing to make partner including what mistakes to avoid, challenges they can anticipate, and the skills needed to be successful.
“Be willing to seize opportunities when they are presented, even if that means developing a new area of practice. Also, figure out what your firm lacks and needs. We were a litigation-heavy firm when I started, but as we grew, opportunities arose in the corporate transactional space,” he said.

He also serves as outside general counsel to several small and mid-sized businesses in the agriculture/food, commercial real estate, construction, health care, insurance, and manufacturing industries.
