Managing Partner, Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP 

Jennifer Grady joined Richards Kibbe & Orbe in 2004 and became Managing Partner in 2014. She is one of only a few women to lead a top law firm. In 2015, she was named a Woman Worth Watching by Diversity Journal

“While I am a rarity as a female managing partner, and while there are advances yet to be made, thanks to women who’ve gone before me I find myself judged largely on my work rather than my gender,” Jennifer said in an interview

In 2016, RKO was named a top law firm for minority attorneys and gender diversity. The firm also partners with The Posse Foundation, a college access and youth leadership development program for diverse students.
