A group of 12 Weil women was recently recognized in Expert Guides’ 2014 “Women in Business Law” publication. The practice areas in which these women earned “Expert” status include Capital Markets (Anna M. Frankowska), Commercial Arbitration (Karolina Horakova), Competition and Antitrust (Ann Malester), Corporate Governance (Ellen J. Odoner), Insolvency and Restructuring (Lori Fife, Marcia Goldstein, and Jacqueline Marcus), Litigation (Diane P. Sullivan), Mergers and Acquisitions (Akiko Mikumo), Private Equity (Marilyn French), Structured Finance and Securitization (Jacky Kelly), and Tax (Kimberly S. Blanchard).
These leading lawyers span from nine of Weil’s offices around the globe – Boston, Hong Kong, London, New York, Prague, Princeton, Warsaw, and Washington D.C. Notably, Anna Frankowska was the only lawyer in Poland recognized for Capital Markets. Additionally, Karolina Horakova was the only lawyer in the Czech Republic mentioned for Commercial Arbitration.
