Shearman & Sterling’s Sanja Udovicic, a London-based partner in the Project Development & Finance Group, was featured as a "Voice of Experience" on The Glass Hammer, an online community designed for women executives in financial services, law and business.
The profile notes that Udovicic has worked on transactions all over Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa in sectors ranging from power, including renewables and nuclear, oil & gas, transport and other infrastructure, entertainment, telecom and media. This global experience, Udovicic says, has been a key factor in her practice. “It’s crucial to be with a firm that values this globalization,” she comments. “We’re able to connect [clients] with colleagues and resources around the world, and they view that as a significant asset in working with the firm.”
A member of the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee in London, as well as a Resource Partner for the firm’s Lean In initiative, Udovicic is a firm believer in the importance of diversity. “If law firms lag behind their clients on diversity—and some of the statistics are showing that this is starting to be the case—they will find themselves less representative of the clients they serve,” she says. “I am actively involved in the promotion of diversity and inclusion in the firm because I want us to be leading on these issues.”
