CBIA’s BizCast talks with Leander Dolphin, Kent Nevins, and James Ruggeri, the new three partner leadership team at Hartford-based law firm Shipman & Goodwin.

The co-managing partners share the background behind the decision to expand the leadership model following the retirement of former managing partner Alan Lieberman at the end of 2020. 

“The thing that was important to the partnership was to have diversity, in every different way," says Dolphin. "Geographic diversity, diversity of ideas, and even diversity in the practice groups from which the three of us come.”

The attorneys also share the ways they balance their practice responsibilities with their leadership roles, noting the importance of open lines of communication and their supporting staff.

Dolphin, who is one of the featured speakers at CBIA's May 26 When Women Lead conference, also discusses the importance of diversity, saying  “we understand we need to reflect our community."
