Breaking the Glass Ceiling on a Part-time Schedule

Just before the COVID crisis really heated up, I interviewed Lauren Resnick, who is the Chief Practice Partner for the national law firm BakerHostetler.  Lauren is someone who not only broke through the glass ceiling at an AmLaw 100 firm, but she did it as a part-time attorney.  I spoke with Lauren about her path from the public sector back into private practice, and what it was like being part-time.  We also discussed some of the challenges of being in a management role at a major law firm and how she has continually reinvented herself throughout her career.  You can hear this latest episode of the Counsel to Counsel Podcast wherever you get your podcasts or click here.

This interview was conducted in early March.  At the time, Lauren and her firm had already developed a practice group to address the legal issues that are raised by the pandemic, a testament to her ability to think in a highly strategic manner.
