Employment lawyer makes partnership on a 4-day week

Elaine Aarons, top employment lawyer and a principal at Withers, says that women can have it all.
By this she means that they can have a successful legal career in the City as well as balanced children and a happy family life. When we asked her how she thinks this is possible, given the hours and pressure that partners face, she cited working a four day week for the last 17 years as one of the reasons why she has managed it. Her moral of the story is to ask... Read below to see how and why a successful female partner thinks it can be done... mtl: Hi Elaine, tell us about where you have worked? Elaine: I planned to go to the Bar but in the end decided to train at Norton Rose, as in the late 1970's choosing to be a solicitor instead meant being able to combine a legal career with having a family. Elaine: I still put in significant effort and hours and commitment, but on a much more flexible basis. Elaine: The difference between hitting the glass ceiling and moving on is whether you get involved in bringing in work. Elaine: Communicate, be cheerful and try not to bring your stress home with you!There is nothing like a smile and positive thinking to influence a child. Elaine: It should of course be more possible. Elaine: No, I have had fun, I've enjoyed my work and I've had the flexibility to be able to mix it successfully with my family life. mtl: Thank you for your time Elaine. Elaine is also a member of the The Hidden Brain Drain taskforce led by economist Sylvia Ann Hewlett and made up of 19 global corporations.
