Managing Partners + Bay Area General Counsel = Legal Leaders Dinner

BASF’s 2014 Legal Leaders of the Bay Area Dinner was held on June 11 at One Market Restaurant. Managing Partners from BASF’s Leader Circle firms, as well as General Counsel from various Bay Area companies, came to the event and were able to network in a fun, casual setting.

Stephanie Jackson, assistant chief counsel for the Transportation Security Administration, attended her first dinner and was extremely impressed. “I thoroughly enjoyed the Legal Leaders of the Bay Area Dinner. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet and network with some of the Bay Area’s top lawyers. To connect with a variety of lawyers – from partners in established law firms, to general counsel of new, innovative start up companies – was a unique and refreshing experience. I also was impressed with the various ways in which BASF and its members are giving back to the community. I hope to be invited back next year.”

Marcy Bergman, Managing Partner of Bryan Cave, one of BASF’s newest Leaders Circle firms also enjoyed the dinner. “I thoroughly enjoyed the Legal Leaders of the Bay Area Dinner. It was a great opportunity to reconnect with some of BASF’s staff and leadership, along with some old friends in the San Francisco legal community. Perhaps best of all, it was great to make some new connections among Bay Area managing partners and general counsel.”

Held twice a year, the Legal Leaders of the Bay Area Dinner is one of the unique benefits available to BASF’s Leaders Circle firms. The dinners bring together managing partners of the Bay Area’s leading law firms with general counsel and judges.
