Getting Real: A 'Video Podcast' Series: Interview with David Sharfstein

Hosted by Foley Hoag partner Veronica Renzi 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: Dave Sharfstein, Partner, Hogan Lovells

In today’s episode, Veronica gets real with Dave Sharfstein, a partner at Hogan Lovells, who focuses on white collar, compliance, and government enforcement actions.  Dave talks about playing baseball as an amateur athlete in college, and how he learned to harness nervous energy as a pitcher and uses that same skill when he advocates for his clients.  Dave shares about the one loss he remembers most as a pitcher, the importance of building off failure, and how failure is part of getting to the next level.
