Navigating the first year of partnership

28 June 2022 By Robyn Tongol

Law firms across the country are currently promoting lawyers to partner. Here, HFW commodities partner Ranjani Sundar reflects on having made partner just over one year ago, what she’s learned and what others must know about being a new partner.

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Ms Sundar about life as a commodities lawyer (particularly during the age of coronavirus), how and when she made partner, what she has experienced in the 12 months since becoming a partner, the need for support when stepping into that role and being able to lean into those support systems.

Ms Sundar also delves into the importance of having mentors whom you can confide in and trust, being proactive about managing yourself and your workload, the challenges of building a new practice, the need to be adaptable and flexible in what that practice looks like, and her advice for those striving for partnership in a post-pandemic market.
