Jennifer Briggs Fisher, partner at the San Francisco office of Duane Morris LLP, was one of two attorneys selected firmwide in its Women's Impact Network for Success to be honored for helping advance women in the legal profession.
At the firm's annual meeting on Oct. 20, Fisher received the Margery Reed Professional Excellence Award. Reed spent her entire professional career as an attorney at Duane Morris, including 24 years as partner. She was recognized as one of the best commercial bankruptcy lawyers in the country, according to the firm.
"It's an honor to receive an award given in the name of someone as talented and generous as Margery Reed," Fisher said. "I'm committed to continuing her mentoring legacy by supporting the next generation of attorneys here at Duane Morris, both professionally and personally."
Fisher was selected for her commitment to mentoring young lawyers in the firm's offices across the country. Fisher is also the driving force behind the expansion of the Duane Morris cannabis industry practice group on the West Coast, working to promote and market this new practice area for the firm. An experienced litigator, Fisher focuses her practice on representing businesses and corporate executives in highly regulated industries.
The Duane Morris Women's Impact Network for Success is devoted to the success of its women attorneys and provides idea exchanges, professional development and networking opportunities.
