Alexia Korberg Featured on In Loco Parent(i)s Podcast
January 6, 2022
Litigation partner Alexia Korberg was interviewed on “In Loco Parent(i)s,” a podcast about lawyering and parenting hosted by Karen and Steve Vladeck. In the episode, Alexia shares how they balance a high-profile commercial litigation practice with constitutional impact work; their advice for younger lawyers; and their experiences as one of the only openly trans and non-binary partners of a major law firm.
Alexia also discussed Paul Weiss’s commitment to pro bono work and inclusive benefits policies, and how Alexia’s pro bono practice has made them a better commercial litigator.
“What my cases all have in common is that they are all existentially important matters for clients—but my commercial cases don’t necessarily depress me, so it’s a really healthy mix,” they said. “Both practices are mutually reinforcing. I’m a better commercial litigator, which is of course mostly on the defense side, because I know how to be a plaintiff. I’m also a better commercial litigator because I understand the importance of narrative and storytelling from the constitutional work. I litigate my commercial disputes from a consciously narrative framework. So at a trial, I don’t just want my clients to tell the court what they did, I want them to tell the court about their feelings, their incentives, their motivations. Across both of my practices, I’m really interested in the power of empathy-building.”
Recent guests of the podcast series include Dale Ho, a nominee for district judge in the Southern District of New York; Preet Bharara, former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York; and U.S. Representative Mikie Sherrill (D-New Jersey).
