Rebecca Blake Chaikin
The learning curve is incredibly steep, but in the best possible way… You can take as much responsibility as you want. You do have to earn it — and then you can take it.
The Firm fully supports efforts to bring in additional cases or causes that are important to us. For example, I’m a Marine, like my father. I served in Afghanistan and he served in Vietnam. So it was particularly meaningful to be able to help a Vietnam-era veteran.
Early in my career, I’ve led transactions valued at hundreds of millions of dollars. I thought it would be 10 to 15 years before I’d have the opportunity to do that. If you show you can handle it, the Firm lets you run with it.
