Succeeding in a law firm often depends on your book of business. Join WLSA for a panel featuring successful women rainmakers and hear how they made the connections that led to their positions in the upper echelons of the profession. Our panelists are: Karen Popp (Partner and Executive Committee Member, Sidley Austin LLP), Mary Nash Rusher (Managing Partner, Hunton & Williams, Raleigh), and Amy Batten (Partner, Smith Anderson). They will be sharing their business development strategies and tips for young attorneys. Lunch will be provided. Please contact Ruthanne Minoru at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
