Inside Counsel Recognizes Faegre & Benson for Women in Leadership and Key Committee Roles

May 20, 2010 // Franchising.com // Minneapolis - Based on strong representation of women on its management committee and in other leadership positions, Faegre & Benson has been named a recipient of the Inside Counsel Economic Empowerment Award.

The first annual Transformative Leadership Awards honor women general counsel and law firms that demonstrate a commitment to advancing the empowerment of women in corporate law.

Three women lawyers, Leslie A. Fields, Kathlyn E. Noecker and Linda S. Svitak, serve on the nine-member Faegre & Benson Management Committee. Lisa R. Pugh chairs the firm's benefits committee, and Heather Carson Perkins chairs its legal personnel committee.

Women also serve as executive partners of two of the firm's five offices: Terri L. Combs in Des Moines and Linda Rockwood in Denver. Ann McCullough leads the firm's health care and nonprofit organizations industry team. Kathleen Smith Ruhland is co-chair of the firm's international practice.

"We're proud of the strides Faegre & Benson is making in advancing women and in developing leadership talent among all our diverse lawyers," says Fields. "We look forward to continued progress in this area—and hope to serve as an example for other national firms."

Winners from each awards category will be honored at the Inside Counsel awards ceremony and conference in May at the Fairmont Chicago.
