“As I’ve become more senior at O’Melveny, I’ve worked hard to mentor both my colleagues and students in Los Angeles,” Portnoi said. “I think carefully about how the firm can make sure the best talent can rise to the top and how students can be best equipped for what is undoubtedly a challenging profession.”
