Career Journey

A conversation with Sonia Ramirez Anderson.

What is one thing that makes Husch Blackwell special?

The willingness of people at every leadership level to devote their time and energy to ensure I’m successful. The reason they’re so good at it is that they have such high emotional IQs, which you won’t find at every firm.

What is your advice for a new hire?

Be your true, authentic self. That is sometimes difficult, but the practice of law is hard enough without you trying to be someone else. The firm hired you because we see you for who you are, as well as your potential to be successful. Always keep that in mind.

Is there a recent achievement you found particularly rewarding?

A team of associates and I took to heart what the firm has taught us about making your friends your clients and your clients your friends. Each of us had a corporate contact at one of the world’s largest fast-food chains and, with the support of various Husch Blackwell leaders who helped us strategize and taught us the tricks of the trade, we landed the corporation as a labor and employment client. That’s been the highlight of my year!

Describe the mentoring and coaching support you have received at Husch Blackwell.

We have a formal mentoring program, but the best mentorship and sponsorship I’ve received has happened organically because I am very intentional about seeking it out. I have sponsors within the Denver office and across the firm, which is incredible. The firm has provided communication opportunities – CLEs and panel discussions, for example – that in turn have enabled me to create supportive relationships in all the offices, a number of which developed after I reached out to colleagues following their presentations.

How has Husch Blackwell supported you in achieving work/life balance?

This is a personal journey, not one-size-fits-all, so the firm is supportive as I figure out what is best for me. Like others, when I had a child my priorities shifted. You must decide what’s right for you and ask the firm for the tools to support you, which it will provide.

What opportunities have you had to become involved in firm leadership?

I am Co-chair of the firm’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) Strategic Planning Committee. I’m so fortunate to be part of a team that is helping the firm move in that positive direction. Our people have the power to make change; they are passionate about it. That tells me that I’m at the right place to help. The committee worked with an outside consultant to create a multiyear DE&I strategic plan, which identifies specific goals, such as the retention of diverse talent across the firm, and how to measure progress. With our collective knowledge of firm culture, we then tweaked the “how” to fit Husch Blackwell. We meet quarterly with committee leaders and discuss what we’ve accomplished and ways to move the ball forward. The firm as a whole is excited that this is a priority and is open to trial and error.
