CITATION UPON INDUCTION INTO THE COLLEGE
Aleisha Gravit, Chief Client Services & Marketing Officer at Akin Gump, brings a rare combination to the legal profession – she is both a visionary and a servant leader. Nothing she accomplishes is born of or driven by ego, yet her confidence and swiftness in evaluating a situation, assessing what needs to be done, understanding and respecting the delicacy of relationships – and ultimately achieving the right goals and solutions – make her the right hire, an adept business partner, a trusted advisor, a sought-after ally, and a gentle comrade.
An active contributor to her chosen profession of legal marketing, Aleisha served as president of the Legal Marketing Association in 2013, after several years of involvement with the international LMA board of directors. She brings intellectual and emotional perspective to each situation she encounters, is enormously generous with her talents and time, and is universally respected and enjoyed. The College of Law Practice Management is delighted to welcome Aleisha Gravit as a Fellow.
