Kenneth Reich offers a mentoring consulting service to attorneys and other professionals with varying levels of experience. Mr. Reich is a practicing lawyer with his own firm and over his career has worked in a variety of settings, including legal services, the federal government and private firms, large and small. See his legal website at During his career, Mr. Reich has served as an informal mentor to law firm associates, junior government colleagues, recent law school graduates and law school students. However, mentoring is less and less the norm, as a result of a combination of factors, including the increased pressure on partners in law firms to produce, leaving them less time for mentoring; decreased emphasis in firms on training their younger associates, for the same reasons; time pressures on overly busy government and pro-bono lawyers; less opportunities for collegiality for all of the above reasons as well as the technological breakthroughs that allow lawyers to work away from the office; and what appears to be a flood of recent law graduates hanging out their own shingles as a result of the economy. In recognition of this gap, Mr. Reich has started a mentoring service to provide lawyers (and law students) with the following: advice on the development of practical lawyering skills not taught in law school, including questions attorneys may be afraid to ask; advice about the nuts and bolts of running a law practice; client development advice; career advice and confidential advice on specific client matters, including substantive advice in areas of Mr. Reich’s practice.

Mr. Reich is also an adjunct faculty in the 2012-2013 academic year at Boston University Law School where he is teaching upper class seminars on environmental law and energy law and policy.
