In her 3-1/2 years at Stafford Rosenbaum, senior associate Olivia Pietrantoni has grown into her practice, not only honing her work in client management, but also strengthening her specialties as she looks to the future.
Pietrantoni now offers business law and real estate services in areas including commercial and residential sales and leases, conservation easements, land trusts, mergers and acquisitions and commercial-loan documents.
“With a host of satisfied clients, she earns their trust by being responsive to initial inquiries from potential clients and maintaining an elevated level of professionalism and focus throughout the legal processes,” said Kathleen McNeil, head of human resources and business development at Stafford Rosenbaum.
She often hears compliments from clients about her delicate balance of compassion, promptness and knowledge of the law, according to her colleague. She also receives recommendations from outside professional organizations, like real-estate agencies.
Another notable contribution is her work with different practice groups throughout the company on articles to publish on the web.
Whether she is listing legal options for a new client in a consultation, providing advice in a marketing meeting and contributing her thoughts and writing to another team’s blog.
With foresight in an ever-changing world, she wants to add cyber-security and data privacy to her specialties.
Christopher Hughes, a managing partner at Stafford Rosenbaum, called Pietrantoni a standout senior associate at the company.
“She is smart, professional, thoughtful and well received by her colleagues and clients,” Hughes said. “Olivia is very focused on being the best attorney and legal counselor she can possibly be.”
Additionally, she has found a way to bring her legal expertise to her environmental advocacy and land-conservation work by serving on the board of the Madison Audubon Society.
“In a number of significant ways, Olivia is not an ‘Up and Coming Lawyer;’ she’s already there,” Hughes said.
