Lori Pines Appointed New Chair of NYC Bar’s Committee on Women in the Profession

Lori L. Pines, a Complex Commercial Litigation partner in the New York office, has been appointed as the new Chair of the New York City Bar’s Committee on Women in the Profession, a high-profile position that has been held by a long line of prominent female attorneys in the past. Ms. Pines, who has served on the Committee for nearly a decade, started her three-year term as Chair on September 1st.

Since there is no separate bar association for women in New York City, the Committee on Women in the Profession is an especially influential and important vehicle for addressing issues that affect the advancement of women across all sectors of the legal profession – including law offices, corporate law departments, the public sector, and other legal settings. The Committee on Women in the Profession has recently focused on developing programs to support women lawyers in five main areas: (1) women of color; (2) women beginning their careers; (3) women practicing in-house; (4) women practicing intellectual property law; and (5) women partners. For more information on all the programs, studies and events the New York City Bar’s Committee on Women in the Profession holds each year, please visit their website at

Ms. Pines received her JD from New York University School of Law, where she was a teaching assistant in the Lawyering Program and a member of the Moot Court Editorial Board. She has a Master’s in Public Affairs (MPA) from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, and a BA in Biology from Harvard College, where she graduated with Honors.
