Kalpana Srinivasan Named a Managing Partner of the Year by Corporate Counsel

Co-managing Partner Kalpana Srinivasan has been recognized as Managing Partner of the Year by ALM’s Corporate Counsel as part of the publication’s 2021 Women, Influence and Power in Law Awards. Recognized for, “demonstrating a commitment to advancing the empowerment of women in law,” Srinivasan wins this award just one year after being elected Susman Godfrey’s first ever female and diverse Managing Partner.

Srinivasan, who was elected co-Managing Partner of the firm in 2020, is a leader both internally, serving as the first woman to be named managing partner in the history of the firm, and industry-wide, representing plaintiffs and defendants in the nation’s most prominent and high-value intellectual property, entertainment and media, antitrust, and class action litigation.

This win comes on the heels of Srinivasan being named one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in the nation for the third year in a row and one of the Top 20 Trial Lawyers in California by Benchmark Litigation, a Top Trial Lawyer by Managing IP, and a Top IP Lawyer in California by the Daily Journal for third consecutive year.
