A Positive Impact on Impact Investing

To mark Women’s History Month and the advances women continue to make in the legal profession, we are proud to feature a look at the career and insights of a highly successful Weil alum, Jennifer Johnson, who was recently promoted to Managing Director, Associate General Counsel at Nuveen, a TIAA company. Nuveen is a global investment leader, managing an array of public and private assets for clients around the world and on behalf of parent company TIAA, one of the world’s largest institutional investors. Jen began her career at Weil as an associate in our Structured Finance & Derivatives and Real Estate practices.

In this edition of the Weil Alumni Interview Series, Ashley Butler, a partner in our Capital Markets practice (and a summer program classmate of Jen’s), talks to Jen about what her elevated role at Nuveen entails, her part in the forefront of Nuveen’s continued focus on impact investing, her guidance for women attorneys in the early stages of their career, and the ways she successfully manages work and life as a parent of a young child.
