Greenberg Traurig Co-President Hilarie Bass joined other distinguished businesswomen in a panel discussion on leadership at the Commonwealth Institute’s (TCI) 12th Annual Top Women-Led Businesses Award Ceremony held in Miami, May 18.

TCI is a nonprofit organization devoted to advancing businesswomen in leadership positions whose membership includes CEOs, corporate executives, directors of nonprofits, independent professionals, and a rising generation of leaders who are committed to building successful businesses, organizations, and careers.
Every year, the organization compiles a list of the Top 50 Women-Led Companies and Top 10 Nonprofit Organizations in Florida based on the survey responses of 5,000 women from businesses and organizations throughout the state, with analysis from accounting firm Kaufman Rossin. Greenberg Traurig was one of the Top 50 private companies honored by TCI at this year’s luncheon event.
“It was an honor to take part in TCI’s annual event that recognizes the impressive achievements of Florida businesswomen,” said Bass, a member of Greenberg Traurig’s Litigation Practice. “It is exciting to see the tremendous growth in women-led businesses and help to serve as a role model for other women looking for their own path to success.”
Bass is a prolific trial attorney with a highly successful 30-plus year career, and one of the most recognized women attorneys in the United States. She is currently President-Elect of the American Bar Association, the world’s largest voluntary professional organization with more than 400,000 members. Bass will start her one-year term as president of the ABA in August 2017.
Throughout her career, Bass has successfully represented high-profile corporate clients in jury and non-jury trials involving hundreds of millions of dollars in controversy.
