Women at the Top: The secret to success may surprise you

The Law Times News recently released an article titled, “Women lawyers’ secrets to success” by Helen Burnett-Nichols. The author conducted a follow-up survey on the career paths of 23 female lawyers who were identified in 2009 as high achievers by their respective employers. These women spanned the spectrum in regards to martial status, but were clustered in the litigation and corporate practice areas. Four years later, 19 of those women are now partners at their firms and continue to be excellent role models for aspiring female lawyers across the industry.
