Center for Women in Law Founding Member Linda Addison has been named one of the 50 Most Powerful Women in New York by Crain’s New York Business. The list recognizes the top women with commercial and civic clout in New York’s business community. She is one of only three practicing lawyers on the list, credited both for her new role as Norton Rose Fulbright‘s Global Head of Dispute Resolution and Litigation, and for her law practice. Linda was also recognized as one of the 50 Most Powerful Women in New York in 2011, when she was Partner-in-Charge at the New York office of Fulbright & Jaworski.
Linda Addison is Global Head of Dispute Resolution and Litigation at Norton Rose Fulbright and has over three decades of experience trying cases in federal and state courts. Described by Lawdragon as “one of the nation’s smartest, most respected litigators,” 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 on this well-deserved honor.
