Getting Real: A 'Video Podcast' Series: An Interview with Abigail Bortnick

Hosted by Foley Hoag partner Veronica Jennings to generate dialogue among and build community with women lawyers

These days, we are looking at this widespread remote working scenario as an opportunity to enhance business relationships by reexamining professional boundaries and relying on means such as video conferences and phone calls. This "video podcast" series consists of discussions with female and male attorneys about issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you find them interesting and helpful and we are grateful to all the lawyers who made time to talk with us.

Guest: Abigail Bortnick, Counsel, King & Spalding

In today’s episode (recorded February 10, 2021), Veronica gets real with Abigail Bortnick, a friend since their days (long ago!) competing together on trial team during law school, and currently counsel with King & Spalding’s Special Matters and Government Investigations practice in Washington, D.C. In addition to previewing what we can expect from congressional investigations this year, Abigail gets real about how she manages to accomplish what’s on her To Do list, even when feeling overwhelmed. She also treats us to a description of some key best-practices for witnesses who are preparing for testimony.
