Law.com profiled Partner Robin A. van der Meulen as part of its "How I Made Partner" spotlight series. The Q&A covers Robin's journey as an Associate to becoming a Partner at the Firm.
Robin recalls the keys to success in achieving partnership, advice to her younger self and associates looking to make Partner, and the day-to-day changes after becoming a Partner. "My path to partnership required success in all of these areas: a high level of performance actually litigating cases; relationships with colleagues developed over many years, reputation in the bar, and demonstrated leadership skills both inside and outside the firm. For most people seeking partnership, a well-rounded pitch is what will win the day; not any one particular success or skill, and that is what worked for me too," Robin said.
