(PRWEB) July 27, 2016
Nikki-Lewis-Simon shareholder at global law firm Greenberg Traurig LLP’s Miami office is now president-elect of the Gwen S. Cherry Black Women Lawyers Association.
The association, which originally formed in 1985 as the National Bar Association Women Lawyers Division Dade County Chapter, states that its “mission is to address the concerns of women lawyers, and to address the legal, social, and economic needs of the Black community, and the community-at-large.” Simon was installed at the organization’s annual ceremony on June 30. She will take the reins of the organization in July 2017.
Simon has been recognized in the South Florida Legal Guide, "Top Up and Comer," Florida Trend's "Legal Elite" and in Diversity Journal’s "Women Worth Watching." She received a law degree, cum laude, from University of Miami, and a Bachelors of Print Journalism, cum laude, from Florida A&M University.
Simon serves as the firm’s Director of Client Development and Corporate Social Responsibility. As part of this evolving role, she works to strategically align the firm’s diversity and inclusion programming and initiatives with client needs thereby serving as an integral component of the business development function on a global scale, as well as to expand the current efforts of the firm’s diversity initiatives in collaboration with cross-firm stakeholders, among other endeavors. Previously, for more than 15 years, she primarily represented her cross-industry clients’ business objectives by protecting their capital, whether human, intellectual or financial, against claims of wrongdoing in complex commercial litigation matters that span the full panoply of issues targeting businesses’ corporate character and brand.
