Benchmark Women in Litigation Forum – West

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Following the inaugural Benchmark Women in Litigation Forum in New York in September 2014, a sister event was created on the West Coast.

Join in with this one-day interactive forum, in a peer-led environment for you to become a better litigator, improve your skills in the ‘business of litigation’ and advance your progression through the ranks. Delegates will hear some of the US’s top in-house and private practice women lawyers to discuss litigation issues.

Partners Charlene Shimada and Susan Resley will present on "Best Practice for Handling Government Investigations."

  • Strategies when handling SEC, DOJ investigations and enforcement
  • Dodd Frank updates; a year down the line
  • Avoiding professional negligence – when and how to take action
  • Do women have the advantage in compliance cases given the higher number of women in government inhouse roles?
