What was your route to the top? I started my legal career at WilmerHale 32 years ago and was elevated to partner in 1994. I held a variety of leadership positions at the firm before being elected to co-managing partner in 2012. The first of these positions was as chair of the Corporate Department. After 14 years in this role, I became chair of the Transactional Department, which includes the Corporate Department and several other practice groups, and then assistant managing partner a short time later. I also served on the Firm’s Management Committee during this time. I gained an intimate understanding of the firm—its practices, clients and culture—and of law firm economics from holding these positions, which prepared me to take on the role of co-managing partner. While pursuing these opportunities, I have benefitted from wonderful mentors, outstanding colleagues and a firm community that holds close our motto of: “Great work. Hard work. Team work. A place where everyone counts and they know it.”
