FormanWatkins Holds Lunch-and-learn on DRI Women in the Law Seminar

In June, Forman Watkins & Krutz attorneys participated in a Lunch-and-Learn hosted by the Firm’s Women’s Initiative, with attorneys from several FormanWatkins offices sharing valuable takeaways from the 2021 DRI Women in the Law Seminar.  The topics sparked conversations regarding business development efforts, as well as discussions of defense law best practices and litigation skills. The Lunch-and-Learn also prompted continued discussions regarding networking and professional development opportunities, including those available through the DRI Women in the Law Committee.

Seven FormanWatkins attorneys attended the DRI Women in the Law Seminar held April 28 to 30, 2021: Chelsea Gaudin, Ruth Maron Huskey, Sam Kapoor, Michelle Roy, Jennifer Studebaker, Caroline Upchurch, and Elizabeth Penn, who also served with the DRI planning committee for this year’s Seminar.
