Forest Program

It takes ten years to grow a tree and a hundred years to bring up a generation of good men. Hylands launched the Young Partner Support Program (Forest Program) in 2022 to support, empower and lead young partners all over the country. The program has great significance and role in promoting healthy, sustainable, and high-quality development of the firm. The Forest Program invites applications from suitable candidates in the first quarter of each year. Young partners from all the branches across the country can send their applications. The local personnel department collects these applications and submits them to the Partner Development and Assessment Committee of the National Board of Directors, which will report it to the National Board of Directors for review and appraisal, and finally choose the suitable candidates for young partners. These selected candidates can avail of various support schemes of the Program every year.

    Platform publicity and salary incentive

    Tailor-made, unified, and batch-by-batch publicity and promotion activities will be carried out for young partners through online publicity channels such as the law firm's official website and WeChat public platform. Publicity should not only aim at the open market but also take into account small-scale precision marketing. Along with improving the popularity of young partners, we will also enhance the brand effect of the law firm, thus cultivating the professional brand image of Hylands' young partners.

  • Professional empowerment and talent promotion

    Youth Working Committees have been set up in offices all over the country to recognize and improve the leading role of young partners. These Committees serve as a bridge to connect young lawyers in law firms and make greater contributions to the business development and development strategy of the firm. At the same time, branches from all over the country should set up management committees, and local management committees to ensure that two qualified young partners under the age of 45 participate in the management committees and join in the research and discussion of various management affairs of the firm. At the same time, young partners should be given priority in serving on platforms such as law societies, bar associations, and trade associations at all levels.
