Bye bye, big law: Greenberg Traurig co-president Hilarie Bass is stepping down to start a nonprofit

    Zach Schlein writes, “After a one-firm career that spanned more than 30 years, Hilarie Bass, the Miami-based co-president of Greenberg Traurig, will be stepping down in December.

    Bass, who concluded a one-year term as president of the American Bar Association in August, is vacating her position to establish the Bass Institute on Diversity and Inclusion, an organization dedicated to tackling issues facing women and minorities in the workplace.

    Greenberg Traurig confirmed the  prominent litigator’s departure after being contacted by the Daily Business Review, ALM’s Florida-based litigation publication.

    Bass is just the latest leader to leave Greenberg Traurig, which saw its profits grow 7.2 percent in 2017 to $1.477 billion. Earlier this summer, the co-chair of its global restructuring and bankruptcy practice Nancy Mitchell, along with two other Greenberg Traurig partners, jumped to O’Melveny & Myers in New York.”
