Law360 featured Elizabeth Sher in its March 20 Q&A Female Powerbroker series. Beth shared her experience on how she broke into the male-dominated world of litigation and what helped her the most in shaping her legal career. "Thirty years ago I was blessed to receive excellent, simple advice from my parents and mentors, and I was smart enough to follow it. They all said work very hard, learn from every good and bad example you observe, strive to be the best, and stay true to yourself," Beth noted. She also added: "I was also fortunate to choose a firm where the partners focused on performance and results, not gender. When I became a partner more than 20 years ago, our firm made national headlines for making four partners that year, all of whom were 'homegrown' women. In short, I found and continue to find that if you assume you deserve to be at the table and perform at or above the level of the others at the table, they will almost always save you a seat."
