Partner Chuck Shimada was named by Best Lawyers as 2022 “Lawyer of the Year” in Securities/Capital Markets Law in San Francisco. In a profile featuring her recognition, Chuck commented on the influence she hoped her successes would have on others. “I have always had a strong belief that any success I achieved would help women and people of color make progress toward equality. Thus, I felt doubly rewarded by any success I achieved—personally and for women of color.”
The feature also highlighted her pioneer role as the first woman litigation partner and the first woman of color litigation partner at a premier California law firm and as a founding member of the Bar Association of San Francisco’s No Glass Ceiling Task Force and as the co-founder of Women in Securities (WISe).
