Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Chapter of the Women’s White Collar Criminal Defense Association formalizes what has been for years an informal networking group of white collar women practitioners. Our members individually have significant depth of experience and nationally-recognized talent but we recognize and appreciate the value and impact of supporting each other and networking together. Our chapter consists of partners, counsel, attorneys from boutique firms, and consultants.

The group meets on an ad hoc basis, generally quarterly, with the inclusion of associates at certain events during the year. Members are encouraged to be active in the referral network and to use the group as a resource for information and advice on white collar topics.

The main contacts for Los Angeles are listed below. Join us if you are in town when we are meeting.
