Majority Female Executive Board Complements Verrill Dana Culture & History

March 26, 2019 Media Mentions

On March 26, 2019, Law360 posted an article, interviewing attorney Regina Hurley to highlight her elevation to Chair of the Firm's Executive Board. Along with Regina, Barbara Young was elected as a new member of the board, as well as Karen Frink Wolf being an existing member, making the Firm's Executive Board a now majority-female board. In the Law360 interview, Regina explained the uniqueness of Verrill Dana, with the appointment of Judith Coburn to Managing Partner in the early 1990's serving as an example:

“We had someone in that position well before a number of the major firms in the region, and I think that just speaks to the culture of the firm. Women have always done well here. They have always been supported the same way men are supported, and we have great role models. Female partners are eager to work with younger female attorneys and to support them and mentor them.”

Regina further discusses that while the Firm has been recognized by the National Law Journal and Law360 as a top law firm for women over the past few years, gender equality has been a part of the fabric and DNA of the firm for a very long time.
