Female Powerbrokers Q&A: Crowell's Ellen Dwyer
Feb.07.2014 — Labor & Employment Law360
Law360 has recognized Ellen M. Dwyer, Crowell & Moring's managing partner and member of the firm's Labor & Employment Group, in their 2014 "Female Powerbroker" series. In this feature, Dwyer discusses her professional and personal experiences as a successful woman in the legal industry which many consider to be "an old boys' network." When asked what advice she would give to aspiring female lawyers, Dwyer notes, "I would urge a young woman attorney to of course do excellent work, but then to get out of her office, and to let the lawyers around her know what her ambition is, and her commitment to realizing it. She should throw her hat in the ring for opportunities, and worry about how she can manage it all after she gets the opportunity. She'll find a way to manage, and in the interim, she will grow tremendously as a lawyer and person."
