Our Women’s Initiative is dedicated to the support, development, advancement, and retention of our women attorneys, patent agents, and law clerks. The group meets regularly to explore ways they can assist and champion one another, including through collaborating on business development efforts and brainstorming solutions to personal or professional challenges. In addition, they periodically hold events designed to build and strengthen relationships with women clients and other business contacts.
One feature of the Women’s Initiative is a long-running mentoring program designed to advance professional growth and leadership development. While the program has proven beneficial to women lawyers at every career level, it has particular value to those at earlier stages, providing them with feedback and advice to help them grow and advance within the firm.
