How Legal Ops Can Get You To Your Work Joy

Frustrated with your career? There's hope.

I interview Sumi Trombley, a senior advisor at UpLevel Ops, who delves into the world of legal operations. We discuss Sumi’s career transition, the influence of the pandemic on workflow, the role that legal ops can play in promoting diversity, and how it bridges the gap between legal and business concerns. She emphasizes the need for authentic work and balance, and encourages listeners to be open to change and new opportunities.

The Jabot podcast is an offshoot of the Above the Law brand focused on the challenges women, people of color, LGBTQIA, and other diverse populations face in the legal industry. Our name comes from none other than the Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the jabot (decorative collar) she wore when delivering dissents from the bench. It’s a reminder that even when we aren’t winning, we’re still a powerful force to be reckoned with.

Happy listening!
