Last Week's Corporate Counsel Event

Last Week’s Corporate Counsel Event!


More than 250 leaders from the DC region’s legal and business community joined us last Wednesday night in Crystal City, VA to meet and honor the 2016 Trending 40 Corporate Counsel. Key takeaway: this is not your father’s local economy! Our honorees came from industries such as media, private equity, transportation, life sciences, energy, consulting, non–profits, real estate and technology; an incredible testament to the growing diversity of the Washington economy.


Special thanks to our partners: Kilpatrick Townsend, Legal Decoder, Partner Track Academy, Foley & Lardner, K&L Gates, Navigant, NeoSystems, Reed Smith, Garrison & Sisson and Association of Corporate Counsel – National Capital Region.

Congrats to all the great attorneys on this year's list and enjoy a few pics from the event.
