Highlighting camaraderie, informal networks and the importance of mentorship, Bloomberg Law profiled Munger, Tolles & Olson’s Elaine J. Goldenberg and Ginger D. Anders about the relationships they built during their time in the Office of the Solicitor General.
The feature published Jan. 10, 2018 profiles the careers of five female attorneys who served in the Solicitor General’s office at the same time and chronicles the friendship that emerged. It describes the unofficial alliance the group has formed to support one another as they transition into private practice.
The cohort also discusses the importance of mentoring junior attorneys, especially female attorneys looking to explore appellate law. Several point to Munger, Tolles & Olson’s Donald B. Verrilli, Jr., who served as Solicitor General from 2011-2016, as a mentor they hope to emulate.
Prior to joining Munger, Tolles & Olson, Ms. Goldenberg – whose practice focuses on complex litigation and appellate law – served as an Assistant to the Solicitor General for five years.
Ms. Anders served as an Assistant to the Solicitor General for eight years. She has extensive experience in intellectual property law, particularly patent law, as well as transnational litigation and the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, administrative law and constitutional law.
Both joined the firm from the Office of the Solicitor General in 2017.
