Saul Ewing LLP

A determination to build a more inclusive legal community, Indira K. Sharma has been a leader in the movement at Saul Ewing LLP. 

For more than a decade, she was the chair and now serves as the immediate past chair of the firm’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee. Her guidance helped with the creation and implementation of the firm’s diversity-related policies and programming. 

Sharma was also instrumental in forming the firm’s Women’s Development Initiative focusing on advancing female lawyers and leaders as well as forming the Working Parents Committee which provides support and community for staff who are balancing work and childcare duties. 

Apart of the Saul Ewing team for nearly 17 years, Sharma started as an associate attorney, rising to counsel in 2016 and named a partner in 2018. Her legal practice focuses on a wide range of business litigation including complex contract and commercial disputes to matters involving real estate and commercial leases. 

“Indira reminds us that the efforts of one person can truly make an impactful difference in how the community embraces and thinks about diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEI&B),” said Jason St. John, managing partner. “She has led our firm’s DEI team for many years, and her impact will be felt for generations. Indira has created and successfully executed a strategy to build a more diverse and inclusive workplace culture and we are stronger as an organization and as individuals because of her efforts.”

She is a University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law graduate and holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Maryland. 

Sharma serves on the board of the Pro Bono Resource Center of Maryland, the Budget and Finance Committee of the Maryland State Bar Association and as the secretary of the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Maryland.
