SAN FRANCISCO, August 31, 2022: Corporate Counsel has recognized Morgan Lewis partner Michelle Park Chiu as a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Champion as part of its 2022 Women, Influence & Power in Law (WIPL) Awards. The annual awards honor general counsel, in-house leaders, and law firm partners who have demonstrated a commitment to advancing the empowerment of women in law.
In her practice, Michelle represents clients facing antitrust claims, including cartel allegations, monopolization claims, and vertical restraint cases. She is a current member and past president of the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area; co-leader of Morgan Lewis’s Asian American/Asian Lawyer Network; and co-leader of the firm’s Conversations on Privilege and Anti-Racism Working Group, which is part of its Mobilizing for Equality initiative. Among other efforts, her extensive Diversity, equity, and inclusion advocacy has included partnering with a nonprofit organization to conduct bystander training for the firm’s clients, lawyers, and professional staff on how to intervene effectively against hate-based harassment to creating a comprehensive mentorship and training program for Asian American associates seeking to make partner at their law firms.
Michelle and her fellow honorees will be celebrated on October 18 during Corporate Counsel’s WIPL Conference in Washington, DC.
