At the end of the day, that's what matters. You can be a great lawyer and sometimes that's good enough but more often than not, it's our ability to bring in business that makes the difference," says Nicole Nehama Auerbach , a partner at Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP (Chicago) and a founder and co-chair of the firm's Women's Leadership Forum, an initiative committed to the strategic retention and advancement of women within the firm and the legal industry. "Formal training and mentoring opportunities that are offered the moment women walk in the door will make a difference in developing strong women leaders for the future both for law firms and for corporations." Auerbach is available to discuss the need for women's initiatives in law firms and corporations and to write an article on the topic.
