Women's Committee

The Women's Committee provides the female attorneys of Olshan an outlet to grow their professional networks through their consistent interaction with other business and professional women exposing our lawyers to the concerns and interests of business leaders.

The Women's Committee reaches out to accomplished and aspiring business and professional women from different trades by hosting informative networking events. These events create unique opportunities for the women attorneys within our firm and the women who attend, to exchange contacts, knowledge and ideas in a close and collegial environment, which the women involved have found conducive to building relationships.
