Adam Kaplan on Practical Skill Development, Attorney Satisfaction

Munger, Tolles & Olson attorney Adam I. Kaplan published an article in the Winter 2017 issue of San Francisco Attorney analyzing results from a junior attorney survey tracking practical skill development  and measuring attorney satisfaction resulting from significant litigation opportunities.

The survey, conducted by the Bar Association of San Francisco (BASF) Barristers Club, tallied responses from nearly 50 Bay Area attorneys from 24 firms of various sizes. Among other findings, Mr. Kaplan observed that survey responses indicated that attorneys have a higher satisfaction when they have taken or defended a deposition, or when they have argued at least one motion in court, compared with colleagues who have not yet participated in either action.

Mr. Kaplan is a litigator who focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation, with an emphasis on securities, intellectual property and employment litigation. He served as 2017 president of BASF’s Barristers Club and a past co-chair of the Barristers Club’s Litigation Section.
