Ascension Stories #19: Alice Jump

Empowered by Effective Empathy

By: AltaClaro

The ability to put yourself in another's shoes—to see the world through their eyes—may be the most valuable skill a lawyer can develop. In this episode, commercial and employment litigator Alice Jump (Partner, Reavis Page Jump LLP) sat down with Ascension to share how her path, from an inspiring childhood education to BigLaw in the 1980s, in-house in the 90s, and now boutique law firm leadership, has instilled in her an appreciation for empathy as an invaluable advocacy and business development tool.

We all do it. Between work and family obligations, errands, the mere whiff of a social life and the few minutes we manage to cobble together here and there for relaxation, we carry around an endless source of excuses for why something important to us must wait until later.
