Dec 6, 2016

Krysia Syska is a female partner who is not only happy but fully engaged in both her career and family. As the only female partner at her firm she shares her secrets for navigating the transition into motherhood and then partnership. She gives clear and practical advice for any young lawyer who is wondering how it can be done by thinking creatively, acting proactively and daring to believe it is possible.


What you’ll learn:

  • That it is possible to be fully invested in both your family and your career, even if it isn’t always easy
  • How having children changed Krysia's practice
  • The importance of setting realistic expectations to achieve real success
  • That if you are at a Firm that you want to stay at, then it’s about being able to have open and frank conversations about your goals and communicating your value to the Firm
  • Krysia’s thoughts on how the practice of law is changing



“The only way I was going to be a good lawyer was if I was able to not have the guilt of not being home with my kids.”


"If you don't like and love coming to work every probably need to reexamine who you are and what you are doing and what you love."
