The Oregon chapter, founded in 2017, began with an informal network of experienced white collar attorneys interested in providing a forum for discussion and referrals among women with similar practices. Members practice throughout Oregon and welcome participants from all communities. The founding members are primarily – but not exclusively – litigators with criminal, licensing and regulatory experience, many of whom handle complex matters with national and international components. All are well-versed in compliance and enforcement considerations during internal investigations and when defending individuals or entities in filed actions. The chapter encourages women with overlapping practices to join. Events are open to all women who have or are developing white collar practices, and mentorship encouraged.
