In an interview with Law.com, White & Case partner Anna Kertesz discusses her path to partnership and provides advice to associates wanting to make partner:
"Be flexible. Sometimes projects come up that you think may be only tangentially related to your usual practice, but these opportunities can be great for professional growth and for meeting lawyers in different practice areas at your firm. These projects can give you a chance to develop new skills or hone existing ones, and to expand your internal network. These opportunities may also be an avenue to develop skills in a niche area related to your general practice."
