Rebecca Bratter: New deputy managing partner of Greenspoon Marder
Written by Gabi Maspons on March 20, 2018
Working closely with founding partners Gerry Greenspoon and Michael Marder, Rebecca Bratter says she has managed to find her way into every corner of the firm. When Ms. Bratter joined the firm she was still a student in law school, and today she is the deputy managing partner, a position newly created to encompass her overarching management role.
A trained litigator, Ms. Bratter has transitioned into a mentorship position. From her first day at the firm, she says, Mr. Greenspoon and Mr. Marder have always given her the resources and the space to grow. Her brand of mentorship is inspired by their leadership over the years. “They both believe in empowering the people who make up your team,” Ms. Bratter said. A good mentor recognizes talent early on and is available for help without being controlling, Ms. Bratter says. Of all her positions, she speaks most fondly about working with new attorneys: “Being a mentor is really important to me.”
To compete in the industry, Greenspoon Marder prioritizes the firm’s culture, Ms. Bratter says. Having a competitive but collaborative environment is essential to keeping attorneys happy, and transparency is key. All the firm’s financials are available to the attorneys so they can understand their profitability, she said.
