Neesons sponsors the Women in Litigation Conference, 2017

successful litigation women

One of our favourite events to be involved with is when over 250 women meet to learn, network and create a powerful force; and this year was no different.  Highlights from the conference for us include meeting and speaking with women from all walks of litigation law, whether in-house, local or out of town, big firm or small, or sole practitioner.  The conference brings women together with strong, information-intensive panels and presenters.  One of the big highlights of the day was hearing the keynote speaker, Marie Henein, give a strong, impassioned talk about the so-called “imposter syndrome” for women – and there’s no doubt that Ms. Henein is no imposter; she’s definitely the real deal.  It’s so important for particularly newer members of the litigation bar to have role models who embody strength, confidence and empowerment; it’s a message all women need to hear, and hear often.
