What was the biggest challenge you experienced when transitioning your career from a law firm to the corporate world, and what advice do you have for others making the leap?
In many ways, the corporate world is more layered than a law firm. To succeed, you must build support for your advice and career development from a large group of stakeholders with diverse backgrounds and viewpoints. It is not always easy to be inclusive with such a broad group, but doing so will enable you to be successful and will expand your skills and abilities. So embrace the challenge!
