Arnold & Porter partner Kathleen Harris, who heads the firm's London office and co-chairs the firm's Anti-Corruption practice, was featured in a recent article from Law.com International discussing the unique demands faced by women lawyers as they return to the office post-pandemic. The article discusses how firms can implement workplace practices that support the professional development and work-life balance of women lawyers.

In the article, Harris provides advice for women lawyers on maintaining high-quality work in flexible work environments. She notes that "the most important thing is to remain visible, keep relevant, meet deadlines, predict the flow of your work so you can anticipate needs and make sure you receive recognition for the work you do, both formally and informally."

"Hard work and excellence cannot be denied so everyone should continue bringing their best selves to work and keep showing how a flexible approach can achieve fantastic things," explains Harris.
