What are some of your proudest recent achievements? I am so proud of our New York office and its recent move to Hudson Yards. As has been covered elsewhere, we are the first law firm to move to a hybrid open plan. I stepped into the partner-in-charge role just a few months before the move, as we faced the challenge of being one of the first law firms to move to Hudson Yards, a brand-new neighborhood, as well as adapting to a completely redesigned office. It has been an exciting time to lead the office. I am also very proud of the promotion of two of my mentees to partner in the last year, Adriana Lofaro Wirtz and Stephanie Gentile. It has been incredible to watch them mature as lawyers and come into the partnership.
