Saba Bireda, with Sanford Heisler Sharp.

Employer: Sanford Heisler Sharp Title and Practice Area: Partner, Employment/Civil Rights

What was the most valuable lesson you learned in your first year practicing law? I learned the importance of dogged determination and never to return to a partner empty-handed, even if no case law existed to support our argument or the law was not in our favor. I learned to think out of the box.

Describe your biggest win or accomplishment in practice. My biggest accomplishment was helping to defeat summary judgment in the Campbell v. Chadbourne & Parke case. We faced an uphill battle in arguing that our clients, law firm partners, were employees under anti-discrimination laws. The court sided with us in holding that the question of whether they were employees was a fact-based inquiry requiring extensive discovery into the firm’s operations.
