Women’s Initiative: Meet Our Women Practice Group Leaders
Meyers Nave is proud of our demonstrated commitment to recruit, train, mentor and advance women attorneys throughout our firm. For example, half of Meyers Nave attorneys are women, nine practice groups are led by women, one of three executive committee members is a woman, two of four attorneys elevated to Principal since 2018 are women, four of our six Diversity Fellowship Program participants are women, and Law360 highlighted our commitment to diversity as a key to our merger with the Brown Law Group, a prominent woman- and minority-owned law firm. (“Diversity Is Key In Calif. Boutique Merger With Meyers Nave,” Law360, 9/3/2020).

Sharing Their Advice
Meyers Nave proudly served as a Gold Sponsor of the Daily Journal’s inaugural Women Leadership in Law conferences held in San Francisco and Los Angeles which brought together women who are leading all sectors of the legal profession, including in-house law departments, law firms and the judiciary. To share their personal experiences and professional insight for women litigators, Deborah Fox, Chair of our First Amendment Practice, Trial & Litigation Practice and Crisis Management Practice, spoke at the Los Angeles event and Nancy Harris, Chair of our Commercial Litigation Practice, spoke at the San Francisco event. Other prominent presentations about women in the legal profession include Brenda Aguilar-Guerrero, Chair of our Eminent Domain & Inverse Condemnation Practice, who spoke about “Pathways to Partnership” at a California Women Lawyers conference and the Women’s Leadership Summit for the Municipal Management Association.
