Linda Addison to be Honored at 2013 Girls Inc. New York Luncheon- Celebrating Women of Achievement

Center for Women in Law Founding Member Linda Addison will be honored by Girls Inc. at the 29th Annual Girls Inc. New York Luncheon- Celebrating Women of Achievement on Wednesday, March 13 at the New York Marriott Marquis.

The event honors the success of four exceptional women executives and one corporate honoree whose remarkable vision and leadership have inspired girls to achieve their highest goals and who demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to supporting girls in realizing their full potential.   The event is hosted by Norah O’Donnell, Co-Host of CBS This Morning, and chaired by Melanie Gray, Partner at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.

Linda is Partner-in-Charge of the New York office of Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P and has over three decades of experience trying cases in federal and state courts and before arbitration panels. The National Law Journal named Linda as one of only seventeen women on their most recent list of “100 Most Influential Lawyers in America.” In 2009, the American Bar Association awarded her the Margaret Brent Women Lawyers of Achievement Award, a prestigious honor given to women lawyers who have excelled in their field and paved the way to success for other women lawyers.

The Center for Women in Law congratulates Linda Addison on this well-deserved honor.
