Women Attorneys' Network

The Women Attorneys' Network (WAN) is our initiative for women attorneys. WAN actively supports the firm's goals to attract, retain, develop, and advance women at all stages of their careers. WAN is co-chaired by Alexis DeBernardisArlen Pyenson, and Rebecca Ricigliano and includes women from every office and practice group at the firm. WAN provides mentorship and sponsorship opportunities, and also delivers workshops and seminars that address relevant topics such as improving retention; professional development; business development; advancement and leadership opportunities for women attorneys; internal networking; and furthering the firm's relationship with its female clients, prospective clients, and alumnae.
