First female managing partner

Site Logo

For many women lawyers, a long-term career at the top level of Big Law seems just out of reach. Diversity statistics from around the world reinforce that belief. The situation is similar in Hong Kong and Singapore, where out of the 20 largest firms only five are spearheaded by a woman. How have they done so and what do they think needs to change for the next generation to succeed? To find out I asked a selection of female managing partners, practice heads, one law firm founder, and several senior lawyers across Europe and Asia Pacific to share their career secrets. Of those I spoke to, many attributed their early career success to the presence of a strong female role model.

Higgs & Johnson Appoints First Female Co-Managing Partner

Carol F. She succeeds Jonathan Spergel who led the lawyer firm for the past five years. She said she has worked with Spergel on the leadership transition over the past year and will serve a five-year term.

Why did you decide to become a lawyer, and what were you hoping for and dreading most? The simple truth is that I was an achiever who loved to argue and loved to write, and that I was the daughter of a doctor and wanted to be a professional — but I could not stand the sight of blood. I was hoping that I would have a gratifying professional life, and was worried about how I could balance that with being a wife and mother, which were also very important to me. How did you get into the areas of law you are known for today? By design?

Дверь, ведущая в ванную, закрыта. - Prostituiert? - Немец бросил боязливый взгляд на дверь в ванную. Он был крупнее, чем ожидал Беккер. Волосатая грудь начиналась сразу под тройным подбородком и выпячивалась ничуть не меньше, чем живот необъятного размера, на котором едва сходился пояс купального халата с фирменным знаком отеля.

Беккер старался придать своему лицу как можно более угрожающее выражение. - Ваше имя. Красное лицо немца исказилось от страха.

Mar 6, - EY looks increasingly likely to appoint its first female managing partner, with two women among the four frontrunners for the amerikancilar.com Big Four.

Последний файл обычно попадает в машину около полуночи. И не похоже, что… - Что? - Бринкерхофф даже подпрыгнул. Мидж смотрела на цифры, не веря своим глазам. - Этот файл, тот, что загрузили вчера вечером… - Ну .

Странно, - удивленно заметил Смит.  - Обычно травматическая капсула не убивает так. Иногда даже, если жертва внушительной комплекции, она не убивает вовсе.

Его обгоревшие останки все еще виднелись на ребрах охлаждения. Вся сцена напоминала некий извращенный вариант представления, посвященного празднику Хэллоуин. Хотя Стратмор и сожалел о смерти своего молодого сотрудника, он был уверен, что ее можно отнести к числу оправданных потерь.

Вы сможете его найти? - спросил Стратмор.

- Что еще это может. Иначе Танкадо не отдал бы ключ. Какой идиот станет делать на кольце надпись из произвольных букв. Фонтейн свирепым взглядом заставил его замолчать. - Вы меня слышите? - вмешался Беккер, чувствуя себя неловко.

Мы ищем цифровой ключ, черт его дери. А не альфа-группы. Ключ к шифру-убийце - это число. - Но, сэр, тут висячие строки. Танкадо - мастер высокого класса, он никогда не оставил бы висячие строки, тем более в таком количестве.

Эти висячие строки, или сироты, обозначают лишние строки программы, никак не связанные с ее функцией.

Пять человек. Четверо. Всего трое.
