Evan Goldfarb Discusses Leadership Journey with Corporate Counsel

November 22, 2023

Thompson Coburn health care partner Evan Goldfarb was featured in a recent ALM Corporate Counsel Q&A highlighting honorees at this year’s Women, Influence & Power in Law event. She discussed her route to a leadership role in law, what she wishes she had known when she started in the legal profession, and the best leadership advice she has received.

"I believe my ‘route to the top’ resulted from my diligence and commitment to providing high quality and responsive work product both with respect to my billable activities for clients and my non-billable activities for the firm,” she said. She also noted leadership advice she received from her mentor Jim Gunn: “Jim had an uncanny ability to develop strong and genuine personal and professional relationships with his firm colleagues and with his clients. Hearing Jim’s views on the importance of these relationships and observing the success he achieved as a result of these relationships has always served as an inspiration to me.”

The Q&A followed Evan’s recognition as a 2023 Women, Influence & Power in Law Award winner. In October, Evan received the award at ALM’s Women, Influence & Power in Law (WIPL) conference in New Orleans. She was recognized in the Collaborative Leadership category.

Evan co-chairs Thompson Coburn's Corporate Department and serves on the Management and Executive Committees. She is a trusted advisor to hospitals, health care systems, long-term care facilities, health plans, physicians, and other businesses in the health care industry.
