Anna Erickson White, a securities litigation partner, has spent her entire career at Morrison Foerster, starting there as a summer associate in 1991. From early on, she was involved in different firm committees; she was the associate representative of the Palo Alto, California, office, managed the summer associates for two years and shortly after becoming a partner in 2000, sat on the firmwide associate evaluation committee and was the head of litigation in Palo Alto. “I enjoyed those opportunities because it gave me a broad perspective of the firm and introduced me to the different people and practices in the firm,” she says. She served as MoFo’s firmwide managing partner twice, from 2006–09 and 2012–15. Currently, she is on the firm’s executive committee and board of directors and works in the San Francisco office.
