Barb Rummel Featured in Law360’s Female Powerbrokers Q&A Series

03.13.14

Barb Rummel recently discussed how she built her successful practice with Law360 for their “Female Powerbrokers Q&A” series. When asked what advice she would give to a law firm looking to increase the number of women in its partner ranks, Rummel responded, “First and foremost, ensure that women get access to good work and important clients in order to build skills and a book of business. Success in a law firm is all about the clients. Firms should make mentoring and business development resources and coaching available to all attorneys. Second, offer flexible work options and provide opportunities and support structure for alternate career paths without the stigma associated with part-time or nonequity status. It is important for women choosing those options to also be flexible and to take charge of their careers to find solutions that work for their individual situations. This route may take longer than the traditional path, but it is better (for both the firm and the lawyer) than dropping out entirely. Last, firms should involve women in important firm committees and provide leadership opportunities to network within the firm, build their profile and develop leadership and ownership skills. In my experience, women have been great contributors to firm leadership because they have been team-oriented and followed through with their commitments.”

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
