In this week’s episode, Law.com business of law reporter Dylan
Jackson talks to Yvette Ostolaza, the chair-elect of Sidley’s
management committee, and Larry Barden, the firm’s outgoing chair.
The conversation centers on the timeless topic of succession
planning--an area too many firms neglect despite knowing the
potential cost of doing so. Barden and Ostolaza, who will be the
first woman to lead Sidley in its 155-year history, discuss the
firm’s philosophy on succession planning and its approach to
cultivating a new generation of law firm leadership that is both
diverse and innovative.
