Nadira Clarke, head of the firm's Washington, DC Litigation practice, and member of the firm's Board of Directors and Executive Committee, was named Katten's Working Mother of the Year by Working Mother for her leadership in mentoring women. The profile on Nadira in Working Mother describes how she manages to balance her career with being a mom and step-mom. "Even though I hold a more senior position, I'm a mom of a young son and a step-daughter," she explained. "I have the advantage of having done this for a while, so I'm better able to multitask and control my schedule." The feature also discusses how, as a member of Katten's National Mentoring Panel, Nadira works hard to impact how women get business and are promoted, recognized and compensated. "I understand the challenges of being a working mom so I look for opportunities to promote women to the client, or share tips about balancing work with the challenges of parenthood," she said.
