BASF Sponsor Firm Bingham McCutchen Holds Women’s Retreat

Bingham McCutchen’s San Francisco office recently hosted an event that served as a forum for the firm’s Northern California-based women attorneys that focused on both advancing participants’ individual business  and career development goals and exploring broader gender issues that women face in the legal field.


It was attended by approximately 35 Bingham attorneys, including San Francisco Managing Partner Ella Foley Gannon, Silicon Valley Managing Partner Carol Dillon  and Labor and Employment Co-Chair and Firm Administrative Partner, Deborah Fischer — who works in Bingham’s Los Angeles office.

Highlights of the event included a presentation given by Stanford Professor and Lean In organization member  Margaret Neale about gender and negotiation that explored the common challenges for women as they face opportunities to negotiate.
