Williams & Connolly Partners to Speak at Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference

October 2019

Partners Lisa Blatt, Sarah Harris, Ana Reyes, and Beth Stewart will all headline panels at the upcoming Women, Influence & Power in Law (WIPL) Conference on October 16-18 in Washington, D.C.  Williams & Connolly is also proud to sponsor the conference, which brings together leading female in-house and outside counsel from across the globe.

Lisa, Chair of the firm’s Supreme Court and Appellate practice group and one of the nation’s premier appellate advocates, will headline the conference’s Luncheon Spotlight Presentation: Supreme Court Update on Thursday, October 17th.  She will discuss current trends in Supreme Court litigation and offer her perspective on why women are arguing only a fraction of the cases in front of SCOTUS and how that can change. The panel will be moderated by partner Sarah Harris who also is a member of the firm’s Supreme Court and Appellate practice group.

Ana Reyes, Co-Chair of the firm’s International Disputes practice group, will lead the panel “Ethics and Privacy Issues for International Disputes.”  She will be joined by speakers from Deutsche Bank AG and The Hersey Company, among others, to discuss the constantly changing regulatory landscape concerning issues of privacy as well as how best to comply with these regulations in all aspects of a case.

Beth Stewart, who focuses her practice on white collar criminal defense and complex civil litigation, will join panelists from CoStar Group and Crestline Hotels & Resorts, among others, for the panel “360-degree View on How to Navigate a Crisis.”  The panel will explore ways to arm counsel with a plan to protect the company and minimize long-term problems when dealing with crisis situations.
