Bonny Forrest brings to her work with lawyers a unique combination of skills and experience.
Her many years as a practicing lawyer gave her a first-hand understanding of the issues that confront lawyers working in fast-paced, high-stakes environments. She practiced as a litigator at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in San Francisco and then, during the height of the hostile takeover boom, as an M&A lawyer at Skadden Arps in New York, before moving in-house to Greenwich Capital Markets and Merrill Lynch. While completing her doctorate at Columbia and Yale, she also led Shearman & Sterling’s pro bono program. Although she continues to take on some high-profile legal matters, for the past 15 years she has worked primarily with organizations and individuals as a clinical neuropsychologist.
Her background and training enable her to combine a first-hand grasp of what it is like to practice in a large firm with top-tier training as a psychologist and many years’ experience working with professionals as a coach and psychologist.
