Q & A
As an attorney focused on litigation, what is a skill you have that clients appreciate most?
I think clients appreciate an attorney who understands the client’s business and keeps their business top of mind as new developments in the law unfold. One of the exciting things we do as lawyers is monitor legal developments across a wide range of areas and study how these developments in the law could impact our clients’ businesses.

Additionally, it cannot be overstated that attorneys must know the rules. It is my firm belief that what sets apart a great attorney from a good attorney is that the great attorney not only has the willingness to immerse themselves into the rules that govern the case, they also have a deep love for it. The same is true for the facts and/or record of the case. It is not enough to know parts of the record—a great attorney takes on the record as his or her own history.

Unsurprisingly, this is the area of the law where I enjoy being in the most: being entrusted to keep abreast of all legal developments and procedural checks, while also being entrusted to adopt my client’s record as my own.
What do you think makes Bilzin Sumberg’s Litigation Practice unique among commercial law firms?
I think what makes our Litigation Practice unique is the level of trust and support the leadership imparts upon young associates like myself, and the ways they do it. A great example is the encouragement to lead the way on a pro bono matter. There is a great level of trust and encouragement to work on these cases from our start at the firm. This affords us opportunities to develop important skills that would otherwise have taken us considerable time at other firms. Being encouraged to leverage our skills and resources to help those who need it the most was a big draw for me.
