Our company believes that giving female mass tort attorneys networking opportunities like this only serves to further strengthen the plaintiffs’ bar.
WILLIAMSVILLE, NY (PRWEB) September 21, 2017
Law firm financing company, Counsel Financial, proudly announced its sponsorship of an all-women plaintiff attorney program occurring this September. The Women En Mass (WEM) annual retreat for female mass tort attorneys is celebrating its fifth consecutive year and Counsel Financial is honored to continue its support as a pledge sponsor again this year.
Women En Mass was founded by Aimee Wagstaff of Andrus Wagstaff in 2012 to allow female mass tort attorneys to network and stay on the cutting edge of current litigation. The annual retreat is held this year in Aspen, Colorado on September 25-26 and provides a multitude of sessions that promote leadership and growth of women lawyers in the mass tort arena. The event is free as a result of generous sponsors like Counsel Financial, who support the notion of gender equality in the law and the Women En Mass mission.
“WEM is unlike any other seminar in that it is a gathering point for female plaintiffs’ attorneys to share knowledge and insight in a relaxed atmosphere, allowing them to develop a strong camaraderie. It doesn’t matter if you’re a first-year associate or a partner at your firm, attending WEM can provide tools to succeed and gain leadership roles in mass torts,” stated Megan Payne, Chief Operating Officer at Counsel Financial. “Our company believes that giving female mass tort attorneys networking opportunities like this only serves to further strengthen the plaintiffs’ bar.”
In addition to Women En Mass, Counsel Financial will also be in attendance at HarrisMartin's MDL Conference: Orthopedic Devices and Hernia Mesh Litigation in Boston, Massachusetts. The seminar coincides with the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation hearing and is open to plaintiffs’ attorneys only. The CLE-accredited program offers the opportunity for attendees and faculty to openly discuss trial strategy, litigation techniques and how to defeat common defenses raised in mass tort litigation.
