As chief officer of recruitment and development at K&L Gates, Susan Fried oversees much more than staffing and retention. Working collaboratively with the firm’s leadership since her arrival there in 2002, Fried has been instrumental in establishing innovative programs aimed at growing a diverse force of associates into great attorneys.

Her background as one of the country’s first professional development professionals prepared Fried well for the opportunities and challenges she would face at K&L Gates, one of the world’s leading law firms with 1,500 lawyers stretched across 24 offices on three continents. Fried was one of the earliest members of the board of directors of the Professional Development Consortium, an association of development specialists at major law firms in the United States, Canada and England. Perhaps most helpful to her current role, however, is her own background as a corporate lawyer.
