BGD team members are always learning. Our administrative team members are leaders in their respective fields. We encourage participation in professional associations such as the Society for Human Resource Management, the International Legal Technology Association, the Association of Legal Administrators and Paralegal associations.
Our Legal Administrative Assistants receive on-going training from the firm’s in-house trainer. Our goal is to hire and retain those individuals with the highest level of skills.
Our firm offers a variety of courses on legal and business topics throughout the year. Our recent BGD University course guide has covered:
- “Trust but Verify”
Course Description: Whether a researcher is verifying some simple facts or involved in complex due diligence research on an organization, a Google search is a great way to start. But once the researcher obtains a results list and begins to review the information, every researcher should wonder if these websites are to be trusted?
- “Professionalism Program: Transparency in Invoicing”
Course Description: The most important regular communication we have with our clients is the monthly invoice for services. What we say in our entries can have more meaning to our clients than that multi-page letter we sent them with lots of Latin words and footnotes.
