Southwest Regional Summit for Women General Counsel and Senior Women In-House Counsel
The Southwest Regional Summit provided an opportunity for senior women in-house counsel to network with one another and to share ideas as to how they can advance and succeed in their respective companies. In addition, Summit attendees discussed creative ways to help ensure that the outside women lawyers who handle their companies’ work are advancing in their law firms and are receiving fair origination credit for that work. At the end of the day, area law firm managing partners were invited to join the group for a joint session and reception, providing a unique opportunity for in-house counsel to share insight on what they expect from outside law firms on important issues like fair origination credit for work, two-tiered partnerships, and team diversity.
