The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Shirley Curfman as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in law. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 775,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.
“I’m pleased to welcome Shirley into this exceptional group of professional women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her success in law is sure to inspire young girls and women to choose this career path.”
Shirley Curfman, Partner at Seyfarth Shaw LLP, has attained professional success for 35 prosperous years. She has succeeded in creating strategic alliances and key business initiatives while providing quality leadership. Ms. Curfman has built a strong foundation that continues to secure her reputation as a capable and caring lawyer.
Ms. Curfman’s main goal is to use her extensive legal expertise, including negotiation skills, to represent clients at the highest level. She has been with her current firm for almost seven years, having joined for the opportunity to establish a strong corporate law presence in a new downtown L.A. office. She is the L.A. Office Chair for the Corporate Practice Group.
Ms. Curfman is justifiably proud of her professional achievements and, although she remains active in representing her clients, she is currently trying to spend more time with her family as she works toward retirement.
