Partner Mary Leslie Smith was quoted in the June 4, 2013 edition of the Miami Herald in an article titled, “Advice to graduates: Combine networking with true passions.” The article offered networking and career advice to young professionals, highlighting ways in which to build the right networks, learn the right skills, and lay a foundation to become a successful leader in the future. Ms. Smith noted in the article that it is worth the time investment to build and maintain social networks, but that is only one piece of the puzzle — connecting in person builds shared experiences that strengthen relationships. She also added that building a vibrant network includes forging relationships at all levels. “Ten years from now that associate next door may be a general counsel who becomes a client. The more friendships, the more relationships you build, the better.” Ms. Smith also noted that one of the best time investments a young professional can make is financial education, particularly for those without business degrees. “Learn to read a financial statement, the key terms in the stock market, how to read a prospectus. It will pay off for you.”
