I have practiced law for the last seventeen years as a lawyer at Davis Polk & Wardwell. During this time, I have had the opportunity to live in New York, Germany, Hong Kong, and California and have had the privilege of leading projects and practices and serving many clients in hundreds of transactions. As I reflect on my own journey and what I have seen across many organizations, I have come to believe that leadership is an everyday job accessible to young lawyers from the start of their legal careers. I believe that every one of us can and must show up daily as both a leader and a follower, be an agent for positive change, and do our part to nurture and support a culture of inclusion and excellence in our profession and in the organizations to which we belong. For law students who might read this brief Reflection, here are some of my thoughts on the subject of leadership as a practicing lawyer and how I personally orient to them.
