we also showcased certain pro bono initiatives, such as the Rosie the Lawyer program based out of Baltimore. Maryland firm Wright, Constable & Skeen and the nonprofit CollegeBound Foundation teamed up to give back to their community and provide high school girls with an insider’s look at the legal profession. The students hear from attorneys who have backstories similar to their own, watch judges in live court sessions, learn about proper interview and job etiquette, and are able to see that a future as a lawyer is entirely feasible for women and minorities alike. In our cover story, Leslie Davis and Patricia Holmes Brown highlighted a trend within the law industry on why a firm might want to look at taking in a lateral partner and how to make those newcomers feel welcome in the new workplace, particularly if they’re a woman or minority. Both writers make an important note within their article, which is to say that a firm should constantly be evaluating how they can be more inclusive and accommodating, as there is always room for improvement. Celia Huber and Sara O’Rourke also shared how boards can diversify further, noting that only 19 percent of board members identified as female in the United States. In our Civil Rights and First Amendment Section, we saw a culmination of opinions that centered, most notably, around the turbulent political climate in the aftermath of the November election.

This magazine serves as our way of furthering the conversation and highlighting powerful, inspiring female attorneys in their respective practice areas. This year we partnered with the Coalition of Women’s Initiatives in Law to create our esteemed inaugural Women of Influence awards. Coalition members nominated 70 attorneys from firms and NICOLE ORTIZ companies across the nation based on their achievements and accolades in their specific practice areas, and 15 winners were selected based on factors such as number of nominations, nominator feedback, and editorial research. We believe peer recognition is worthy of celebration, and this list has been an enriching look at the encouragement amongst women in the law. Taking that a step further, Patricia K. Gillette shared what makes a successful rainmaker (encouragement, dominance, motivation, and risk-taking, in short), which offers an insightful look at a firm’s inner-workings as well as enriching advice for those in the field. In addition to focusing on impressive female attorneys,

reached out about this section, we were inundated with responses. This wasn’t necessarily surprising, but it was encouraging to see so many lawyers interested in offering their input. Susan Gellman focused on the recent rise of hate crimes across the country, while Martin B. Margulies dove into Donald Trump’s controversial remarks about the legality of flag burning. We also received interpretations on Trump’s approach to free speech and libel law from Jennifer Kinsley, as well as Barry Langberg and Deborah Drooz. In a time when many people feel at odds with one another or are unnerved at the direction the country may be heading, it felt important to reach out to professionals and hear their thoughts. Through our “Women in the Law” publication, we aim to amplify the voices of women, minorities, and the disadvantaged within the legal field, which is becoming increasingly more diverse. It’s a publication we hold close to our hearts and share with our readers in the hope that it will resonate as deeply with them as it does with us.

BUSINESS EDITION | SPRING 2017

RAINMAKERS: ATTORNEYS WITH $4 MILLION IN BUSINESS


istock.com/PashaIgnato

P

icture this: two firms are vying for the same engagement with a large client. Both firms have great reputations; both put forth lawyers who are experts in their fields; both sets of lawyers have handled matters that are similar to the potential subject. And yet only one firm will be retained by the client. What makes the client choose one firm over another? I had a theory about the answer to that question. I thought that it took more than just coming from a good firm and having a great reputation to bring business in the door. I believed rainmakers had something that differentiated them from other lawyers: the ability to sell. This is not a skill we are taught in law school, nor is it the focus of most business development training in firms. And yet it is precisely what rainmakers do: we sell ourselves, firms, expertise, and reputations. I theorized that successful business developers had personal characteristics that made them better at selling than other lawyers. And in a study I co-sponsored with Lawyer Metrics that was published in late 2013, my theory was verified. Through psychometric testing and background and behavioral interviewing of rainmakers (attorneys with $4 million in business) and client service partners (attorneys who are highly valued by their firms, but don’t have large books of business), we found that rainmakers do, in fact, display characteristics that are different from client service partners. Those characteristics are engagement, dominance, motivation, and risk-taking. And when you talk with successful rainmakers, you see these characteristics prominently displayed. Engagement is the ability to actively listen, look for connections, and be interested while also being interesting. Rainmakers like people, so they ask questions, gather information, and use that information to connect with the people. They see their work and personal lives as inextricably intertwined, so business development is not a burden but a part of everyday life. Dominance is the ability to persuade and lead. Rainmakers use this characteristic to help clients reach business solutions. How do they do that? They learn their client’s business and understand their business goals. So when they respond to

a client, they speak like business people, not lawyers. They are strategic, creative, and innovative in the way they approach business problems, always looking for the best way to help clients legally reach their business goals. Motivation is the ability to be a team player, but unlike client service partners, rainmakers view “the team” as the client. Rainmakers focus on making the client look good and bringing the client into the decision-making process so that she is invested in the decisions being made. Rainmakers empower others and delegate responsibility to their team in the office so that they can focus on bringing in new clients. The final characteristic is risk-taking, which is exactly what it sounds like: the ability and willingness to take risks. Rainmakers differentiate themselves from the pack by putting out ideas, approaches, and solutions that are outside the box. They are never satisfied with the status quo and are always looking for the next thing. So when a rainmaker is told “no” by a client, she actually hears “not now.” What the “Rainmaker Study” confirms is that business

“THIS IS NOT A SKILL WE ARE TAUGHT IN LAW SCHOOL, NOR IS IT THE FOCUS OF MOST BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT TRAINING IN FIRMS.” development has two parts. First, you must have an excellent reputation. You build that with your colleagues and in

the community by doing excellent work and by giving speeches, writing articles, winning cases, and making deals. You promote your reputation by being willing to talk about your successes, taking credit for your good ideas, and asking for opportunities that will enhance and expand your reputation. The second part of being a successful rainmaker is not as tactical, but is instead about knowing how to build relationships. That is what the four characteristics identified above are all about: knowing how to engage and connect with your client, understanding your client’s business goals and challenges, making your client feel like part of your team, and letting the client know that you are willing to push the envelope to find creative and innovative business solutions. Both of the R’s—the ability to build a reputation and the ability to build relationships—are what make lawyers successful rainmakers. So that brings us to the ultimate question: can anyone be a rainmaker? The study tells us that the personal characteristics of rainmakers are the same for men and women, meaning that gender is not an issue in terms of ability (although it might be an issue in terms of opportunity, but that is for another discussion). We all know that there are some people who are fabulous lawyers, but should never be allowed in front of a client. Then there are people who are natural rainmakers, who are born with the ability to connect with people and draw them in. They may need to refine some of their skills, but they are primed to be successful business developers. And lastly, there are those in the middle who can develop into rainmakers with the proper training. Unfortunately, that training is all but nonexistent in the world of law firms. Instead, most training is focused on building reputation, not building relationships. This needs to change. We have to admit that we are in the business of selling, and we need to focus on enhancing the rainmaking skillsets of lawyers by teaching them more than simply the tactics of rainmaking. It is the ability to build relationships that differentiates lawyers from rainmakers, and the sooner we refocus our training efforts on that, the sooner we will increase the rainmaking ranks of our firms.

But what about an artist disavowing his or her work, sometimes not only after it has left the artist’s studio? Public—and collector—acceptance of the right (and the propriety) of an artist making such a disavowal is less universal. The artist Cady Noland has disavowed several of her works.5 In November 2011, she disavowed her 1990 silkscreen on aluminum, “Cowboys Milking.” The work was consigned by its owner to be included in an auction. Noland viewed the work and noted that the corners of the aluminum support were bent and damaged. She disavowed the work, stating that the work’s “current condition…materially differs from that at time of its creation.” The auction house withdrew the work from the auction, and the owner sued both the auction house and the artist. The court held in favor of the defendants, finding that the auction house’s consignment agreement gave it the Ian Phillips, “Indiscreet Charm of Louise Bourgeois,” The Observer, April 29, 2000, available at https://www. theguardian.com/theobserver/2000/apr/30/life1.lifemagazine ; Katy Diamond Hamer, “Assistant for 30 Years: Life with Louise Bourgeois,” Vulture, December 18, 2014, available at http://www.vulture.com/2014/12/lifewith-louise-bourgeois.html 2 Rebecca Daniels, “Francis Bacon: Behind the Myth,” The Telegraph, August 16, 2008, available at http://www. telegraph.co.uk/culture/art/3558531/Francis-Bacon-behind-the-myth.html 3 Ulrike Knöfel, “His Own Harshest Critic: A New Look at Works Destroyed by Gerhard Richter,” Der Speigel, Feb. 3, 2012, available at http://www.spiegel.de/international/germany/his-own-harshest-critic-a-new-lookat-works-destroyed-by-gerhard-richter-a-812515.html 4 Will Gompertz, “The Artists Who Destroyed Their Own Work,” BBC News, July 15, 2015, available at http:// www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-33533960 1

right to withdraw the work from sale if concerns about the work’s authenticity or attribution arose.6 In 2015, Noland disavowed her 1990 sculpture “Log Cabin with Screw Eyes and Café Door.”7 It was designed to be displayed outdoors, and exposed to the elements, the wooden sculpture suffered significant deterioration and was conserved. However, conservation was done without consulting Noland and without her consent. The reconstructed work was sold. Noland, learning of the repairs, faxed the buyer a handwritten note that stated, “This is not an artwork repaired by a conservator [sic] BUT THE ARTIST WASN’T CONSULTED.”8 The buyer sued the seller and the buyer’s own art advisor for breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty, respectively. The art advisor sought dismissal of the case, asserting that no fiduciary duty existed between the advisor and the buyer. The court agreed and dismissed the case against the advisor. The court also dismissed the case against the gallery since the buyer had failed to serve the complaint on the gallery, which was in Berlin.9 Continental European art law has long recognized a variety of “moral rights” (in contrast to the economic rights that most copyright law addresses).10 These moral rights are personal to the creator of a work and cannot be assigned. Particularly under French and German law, certain moral rights are perpetual and are passed down from artist to heirs by inheritance. As a consequence, an artist’s moral rights in these countries continue to be relevant, limiting a 5 Martha Buskirk, “Marc Jancou, Cady Noland, and the Case of the Authorless Artwork,” Hyperallergic, December 9, 2013, available at http://hyperallergic.com/97416/marc-jancou-cady-noland-and-the-case-ofan-authorless-artwork/ 6 Marc Jancou Fine Art Ltd.

collector’s ability to have a work conserved, and in some instances loaned or exhibited, long after the artist’s death. That is unless, of course, the artist’s heirs agree to such conservation, loan, or exhibition. The Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990 (VARA)11 incorporated into U.S. copyright law two of the four “moral rights” that have long been part of continental European art law: the right of attribution (which entitles an artist to be recognized as the creator of a work and conversely not be associated with works the artist did not create) and the right of integrity (which allows an artist to disavow works that have been damaged, altered, or mutilated in a manner that would be harmful to the artist’s reputation). Rights under VARA are more limited than those under traditional moral rights law; they are limited to the life of the artist, and they cannot be assigned or devised. They can, however, be waived. Prior to the enactment of VARA, 11 states had enacted moral rights statutes.12 Following VARA’s enactment, three additional states plus Puerto Rico enacted moral rights statutes.13 VARA expressly preempts state moral rights statutes (and any common law moral rights protections) to the extent that such laws are equivalent to the rights granted by VARA. To date, few cases have considered the critical

question of whether the rights afforded under a state’s moral rights statute are equivalent to those granted under VARA. As a result, it remains unclear to what extent the rights granted under these state moral rights laws may survive preemption. Moral rights are also variously protected “indirectly by state tort, privacy, and publicity laws; by the federal protection of the Lanham Act; and by the Copyright Act’s protection of an author’s exclusive rights in his or her derivative works.”14 Artist disavowals of their work are rare, but collectors and their advisors need to be aware of this risk and of the existence and meaning of artists’ moral rights in order to properly care for, and when necessary, conserve works of living artists (and under the laws of some countries, longdead artists) in their collections. In addition to potentially causing an artist to disavow a work (with a corresponding loss of value and marketability), the unauthorized modification or mutilation of a work can also give rise to liability for damages, statutory penalties, and attorney’s fees. Collectors own and enjoy the artworks in their collections, but they are also the custodians of those works and their artists’ reputations and places in history.

9 Mueller v. Janssen, et al., Case No. 1:15-cv-04827, Memorandum and Order (December 1, 2016) [Docket No. 33]. 10 The traditional “moral rights” are (i) the right of disclosure, (ii) the right of withdrawal, (iii) the right of attribution, and (iv) the right of integrity. 11 The Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990, 17 U.S.C. § 106A (2000).

12 The states with moral rights statutes enacted prior to VARA are California, Connecticut, Illinois, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. 13 Post-VARA moral rights statutes were enacted in Nevada, Utah, South Dakota, and Puerto Rico. 14 U.S. Copyright Office, “Waiver of Moral Rights: Executive Summary,” available at https://www.copyright.gov/ reports/exsum.html

How to Accelerate Gender Diversity on Boards By Celia Huber and Sara O’Rourke

Slow progress in adding more women to boards has dominated the conversation. But tips from standout companies are more likely to inspire others to take firmer action.

BUSINESS EDITION | SPRING 2017

T

he tone of much public discourse on the issue of women’s representation on boards has been pessimistic of late, and understandably so, given the crawl toward gender parity in the United States. Women currently hold 19 percent of board positions there, while in European countries such as France, Norway, and Sweden, where legislative or voluntary targets are in place, they hold more than 30 percent. That said, some progressive companies are taking the lead, looking for female board members in new places and bringing them on board in new ways. Many feel they still have a long way to go, but their experiences are salutary for those that are lagging behind and want to better understand how to make change happen. We recently conducted an analysis of companies in the S&P 500 to identify top performers in board diversity, defined as those with the highest percentage of women on their boards as of August 2016 (see Exhibit 1 for the top 25 and footnote 1 for the full top 60).1 It showed that women occupied at least 33 percent of board seats among the top 50 companies (up to nearly 60 percent for the highest percentage). In all, female representation on those boards has increased on average by 24 percentage points since 2005.

EXHIBIT 1

We then conducted a series of interviews with the CEOs and board chairs from a number of those standout companies, as well as some European businesses that have made similar progress. (For in-depth insights from executives at some of these companies, see “Straight talk about gender diversity in the boardroom and beyond.”a) Our goal was to hear directly from them about their gender-diversity journeys—the challenges they’ve faced, the best practices they’ve adopted, and the benefits that they continue to reap from increased representation of women, as well as other minorities, on their boards. What follows is a set of best practices, although by no means an exhaustive one. EXHIBIT 2

Change the mind-set Even laggards acknowledge that increasing the percentage of women in the workforce and on boards is the right thing to do. But general conviction isn’t sufficient. What’s too often missing, says Fabrizio Freda, president and CEO of the Estée Lauder Companies, is a sense of urgency: “People believe we are going to get there eventually. But that is not enough; it’s too slow. The real obstacle is the lack of urgency.” (For more on Freda’s efforts at Estée Lauder, see “Straight talk about gender diversity in the boardroom and beyond.”) Freda was one of many executives we interviewed who insisted that meaningful change will come only when executives make fewer excuses

and work together quickly. What’s needed are purpose and intention—a set of goals and motivations that will underpin decision-making. For some, that has meant establishing a target number of board positions for women, while others take care to ensure that the list of candidates is diverse from the beginning, without adherence to a static quota. As Mary Dillon, CEO of Ulta, explains, “To maintain or expand diversity on our board, we continue to make an active effort to make sure that the slate is diverse. Just the act of being cognizant, and having it top of mind that every slate has to have diversity, will drive action.” Leaders at both Genpact and Microsoft underscored the importance of flexibility, recounting how their searches to fill one board seat yielded two highly qualified women, so they just decided to bring both of them on board.

BUSINESS EDITION | SPRING 2017

Expand your criteria Despite their best efforts, some companies cite the small pool of female executives as a continuing challenge. And they add that specific criteria for expertise in areas such as digital technology narrows the field even further. Overcoming this reality of unequal numbers requires openness to creative solutions. One is to move beyond the standard practice of focusing a search on executives with prior board experience. Dan McCarthy, president and CEO of Frontier Communications, notes that many of the women on his board were first-time directors. “We were willing to take risks on individuals—we look for someone who has the ability to move from the


tactical to the strategic—and it has turned out to be great.” (For more on McCarthy’s experiences, see “Straight talk about gender diversity in the boardroom and beyond.”) This approach can be particularly helpful for small- and mid-cap companies that struggle to compete with large corporations for highprofile candidates. Genpact president and CEO Tiger Tyagarajan observes that “some people may prefer to join the board of a mid-cap company, where they can actually be more engaged and have an impact on the company’s strategy, versus a large company, where more time may be spent on general governance issues.” Leaders also tell us that looking beyond current or former CEOs and C-suite executives for candidates in other spheres such as law, academia, and the social sector can be rewarding as well, creating a rich balance of perspectives at the table. Ultimately, it’s about defining what is nonnegotiable, such as digital or finance expertise, and then seeing what is flexible so as to deliver on gender-diversity goals and to meet specific challenges.

Maintain an active pipeline Effectively creating and cultivating an active pipeline of female candidates is arguably the single most important element of a successful boardinclusion effort. When conducting a search, this means relying on both personal networks and search firms to identify candidates. Relying only on the former, particularly where a board is composed primarily of men, risks perpetuating the candidate slates from the old-boys’ network of yore; relying solely on search firms can produce highly qualified candidates who are not particularly suited to the personal dynamics of the board. A little patience may also be necessary. As John Thompson, chairman of Microsoft, points out, some of the best candidates may take two or

three years to cultivate. By taking the trouble to get to know potential candidates, even those who may not be available for some time, companies will establish foundations for the long term. Companies that are open about their quest for diversity, meanwhile, will also benefit in the long run. Michael Roth, chairman and CEO of IPG, told us his reputation as a male champion for diversity had prompted a search firm to send him a qualified female board candidate proactively, even though he hadn’t initiated a search engagement with them.

Make the case The leaders we interviewed had long since crossed the bridge of understanding the benefits of gender diversity, but their experiences provide a useful checklist for those still trying to convince the skeptics: • Board diversity helps to draw in and motivate talented employees. As Genpact’s Tiger Tyagarajan explains, “To attract the best talent into the company, you need to appeal to 100 percent of the top talent, not 50 percent. To do that, you need strong female role models.” • Boards that represent the customer base have better intuition. For retailers in particular, the reality is that women make up more than half of global purchasers. Board diversity is simply better business. • A diverse board boosts decision-making quality. As Scott Anderson, chairman, president, and CEO of Patterson Companies, states, “The quality of discussions goes up dramatically when you have a more diverse group in the boardroom.” Rodney McMullen, chairman and CEO of Kroger, adds that “you get questions from perspectives that you hadn’t thought of before, and I think this helps you avoid more blind spots.”

Several of our interviewees emphasized that getting more women on boards isn’t the end of the story. For starters, board diversity is not just about gender. As McMullen explains, “I always think diversity of background is important, but also diversity of experiences, thinking, and career paths.” Marc Lautenbach, president and CEO of Pitney Bowes, puts it this way: “While we don’t have a specific number in mind, we do have an appreciation for the value that diversity can bring. To my mind, it’s a little bit like assembling an orchestra. I know I need a bunch of different instruments; whether I have three of one and two of the other, or three of one and three of the other—that misses the point. It’s about how all of the instruments blend together.”

It’s important to recognize, of course, that broader gender inclusion at all levels of the company is critical. Companies can drive board inclusion by preparing their own female executives for future board participation: placing them in roles with profit-and-loss responsibility, ensuring they have committed mentors and sponsors, and equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to confront the governance and strategy issues that boards typically face. This can create a virtuous cycle that speeds progress on board diversity and counteracts cynicism with success stories such as those in our survey.

FEDERAL OVERTIME RULE INJUNCTION CALLS FOR STATE-LEVEL ATTENTION 1

By Sebastian Chilco and Rachel Fendell Satinsky

M

any businesses let out a sigh of relief after a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction2 halting the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) final rule increasing the minimum pay requirements for exempt executive, administrative, and professional employees. The preliminary injunction was issued about a week before the rule was scheduled to take effect on December 1, 2016. The preliminary injunction effectively maintains the status quo under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which requires that these employees be paid at least $455 per week to maintain their exemption from the FLSA’s minimum wage and overtime requirements. However, under the halted final rule, the federal minimum weekly salary required for white-collar employees would have increased from $455 to $913 per week (or from $23,660 to $47,476 annually), exceeding any applicable state rate. In other words, if employers went ahead with salary adjustments in anticipation of the (now enjoined) federal rule, they likely would be in compliance with corresponding state laws. However, if the same employers decide to wait and see what transpires with the final rule before making wage adjustments, they should consider whether current salary levels for their exempt employees satisfy state law requirements. Additionally, because many state and local minimum wage rates steadily have increased—and will continue to do so—employers should be mindful of jurisdictions in which white-collar employees are entitled to be paid the state’s minimum wage (which is not required under federal law).3

PAY REQUIREMENTS THAT EXCEED $455 PER WEEK

Under the DOL’s final rule, the minimum pay requirement for white-collar employees was to be $913 per week, or $47,476 annually. Because these requirements would have exceeded any equivalent state rate, paying the minimum federal rate essentially would have satisfied an employer’s pay obligations nationwide. But given the injunction against the regulations, for now, the $455 per week ($23,660 per year) standard will continue to apply; thus, employers must ensure the pay provided to executive, administrative, and/or professional employees meets or exceeds the baseline requirement under federal and state law. Employers in Alaska and California are not strangers to dual compliance because both states’ laws have required pay exceeding the federal rate for some time. Laws in these jurisdictions require white-collar employees be paid at least two times the state minimum wage for a 40-hour workweek, and these states have steadily increased their minimum wages. There are other states that link exempt employee pay to the state minimum wage—for example, Colorado, Maine, and Oregon. However, only recently has this become an issue for employers. Previously, the state weekly pay requirement was less than the federal $455/week pay requirement. Notably, all three states have scheduled multi-year minimum wage increases—through 2020 for Colorado and Maine and through 2023 for Oregon— and eventually their minimum wages will adjust annually, too. As a result, the 2017 Maine weekly rate will exceed federal requirements; Colorado’s weekly rate might exceed the FLSA standard in 2017; and depending on an employer’s location in Oregon, the state weekly rate may surpass $455 per week in either 2018 or 2020. Like in Alaska and California, employers in New York must also manage higher pay requirements. But compliance for New


istock.com/matt_benoit

York employers now has become more challenging due to an April 2016 law that amended the state minimum wage law to create four new rates based upon an employee’s work location and/or the size of an employer’s workforce. This law also schedules minimum wage increases into the 2020s. Moreover, in late December 2016, the New York State Department of Labor adopted amendments to its wage orders that assign different minimum pay requirements for white-collar employees, depending on which minimum wage rate applies. The changes took effect on December 31, 2016.4 Finally, before 2004, federal law applied two tests for each exemption: a “long” test with more strenuous duties requirements and a “short” test with a greater minimum pay requirement. Some states, however, including Connecticut and Iowa, did not eliminate their two-test system, and their short tests require a minimum pay amount that exceeds the FLSA standard.

SOME STATE MINIMUM WAGE LAWS COVER WHITE-COLLAR EMPLOYEES Under the FLSA, executive, administrative, and professional employees are exempt from the law’s minimum wage and overtime requirements. However, numerous states’ laws only exempt these employees from their overtime laws, not their

minimum wage laws. Accordingly, in these locations, employees are entitled to receive their state’s minimum wage. This has not been a major concern for employers because many of these states’ rates were at, or only slightly above, the federal $7.25/ hour minimum wage, so an employee would need to work a considerable number of hours in a particular week before a violation hypothetically could occur. Although this remains true in many states that do not exempt white-collar employees from the minimum wage, other states (and cities and counties) have set their minimum wage rates well above the federal rate or have built-in multi-year minimum wage increases followed by an annual adjustment—e.g., Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Chicago, Illinois. Therefore, in these locations, an executive, administrative, or professional employee’s pay must meet the minimum salary and/or fee payment requirement and equal at least the minimum wage for all hours worked in a workweek.

CONCLUSION

Now that employers have some breathing room with respect to the delayed implementation of the federal white-collar overtime requirements, they should consider using this opportunity to examine state wage and hour law to ensure continued compliance with local requirements. 4 See Bruce Millman and Emma Fursland, Proposed Amendment to New York State Wage Orders Set To Substantially Raise Salary Requirements for Exempt Employees, Littler Insight (November 1, 2016) and New York State Has Adopted Amendments to Existing Minimum Wage Orders, Littler Insight (December 28, 2016).

There Are No “So-Called Judges” in America Linda A. Klein, president of the American Bar Association, discussed threats to judicial independence, the need for due process in immigration, and other timely topics in a speech on February 6 to the ABA’s House of Delegates in Miami. Here is a condensed version of her remarks:

BUSINESS EDITION | SPRING 2017


W

hat defines the American Bar Association at this critical moment? It is our commitment to the rule of law, due process, and access to justice. With these foundations, our country has weathered every crisis: civil war, world wars, economic depressions, and social unrest. There’s been a lot of talk about protecting our borders. Let me tell you what the most important border is: it’s our Constitution and the rule of law it embodies. We as lawyers are called upon to protect it. As Winston Churchill put it, “Never give in. Never, never, never, never!” Make no mistake, personal attacks on judges are attacks on our Constitution. Let us be clear: the independence of the judiciary is not up for negotiation. As lawyers, we are trained to be thinkers and leaders—in our profession, in our communities, and in our society. So, lawyers: let’s lead! Let’s lead by promoting and protecting the rule of law. Let’s lead in our communities. Let’s lead together, in this, our defining season. For a nation based on the rule of law, nothing is more important than the impartiality and integrity of our court system. A fair and impartial judiciary is a proud hallmark of American democracy. It is vital that our judiciary remains independent and free from political pressure—independent from party politics, independent from Congress, and independent from the president of the United States himself. There are no “so-called judges” in America. There are simply judges, fair and impartial. And we must keep it that way. Another pressing justice issue is immigration. Every nation has a right to protect its borders. But we are concerned about significant portions of the executive orders recently issued. They jeopardize fundamental principles of justice, due process, and the rule of law. The Supreme Court has held that many fundamental rights apply to all “persons” within the United States, regardless of citizenship or status. We must avoid sweeping bans based on religion or national origin. We oppose detention, except in extraordinary

circumstances, such as a threat to public safety or flight risk. And we insist on the right to due process and legal representation, including hearings before impartial immigration judges. Under the rule of law, we owe due process to all, including those who face deportation. We are very proud of lawyers from around the nation who flocked to airports where immigrants were detained. It is important that lawyers represent their clients’ interests—even unpopular interests—without fear of retaliation or persecution. Faced with these serious concerns, the ABA has acted—and acted quickly. On Friday [February 3], the Law Practice Division Futures Committee and the ABA Center for Innovation accelerated a project to coordinate the volunteer efforts of lawyers responding to the president’s travel ban. Working with the American Immigration Lawyers Association,

convicted of low-level, nonviolent federal offenses received fair sentences. Of the more than 1,700 men and women granted commutations under President Barack Obama, more than half were supported by the Clemency Project. ABA members and other volunteers— backed by policies adopted by this House—made that happen. And here’s another way the ABA is changing lives, this time for young lawyers. In December, the ABA filed suit against the U.S. Department of Education. This is an issue of fairness. Lawyers and others were promised that their student loans would be forgiven if they dedicated 10 years of their new careers to public service. Many young lawyers made life-changing decisions based on this promise. And then the Education Department told some lawyers that their jobs no longer qualified for loan forgiveness, nine years into the 10-year program. That was unfair, a betrayal of not just a promise, but a violation of the law, one passed by Congress and signed by President George W. Bush to encourage public-service work. That’s why the ABA sued on behalf of these public-spirited young lawyers. Our lawsuit is also a stand for access to justice. We want young lawyers to become public defenders, prosecutors, and city attorneys. We want them in rural counties where lawyers are scarce or serving immigrants or children in foster care or low-income litigants who can’t afford representation. We should encourage those choices. So how do we meet the challenges of our defining season? We meet them together. Like America, the ABA’s strength is its diversity, and we need every member’s contribution. This is the ABA’s defining moment: to show our relevancy to our profession and the public. To hold power accountable. To insist on fundamental respect for our laws and the people they protect. At the ABA, we work together. We protect the rule of law. We defend the Constitution. We are lawyers. We took an oath, and these are our values. We will never give in. Never, never, never, never.

The website is live now at www.immigrationjustice.us. The groups worked together and completed the project in less than half a day, during this Midyear Meeting and at zero cost. Thank you to everyone involved. Great work! This is a new model that will enable us to respond to events quickly, so the ABA and our members can make a difference. Another critical issue we face is adequate funding for the Legal Services Corporation. Our commitment with state and local bars to LSC is stronger than ever. The LSC provides hope and help to hundreds of thousands of Americans every year. It is a bipartisan necessity. Reforming criminal justice should also be bipartisan. Thank you to the lawyers who helped inmates through the Clemency Project 2014. They ensured that many men and women

erry Appleman & Leiden believes in creating a diverse workforce. But more than simply talk about it, they are doing it. BAL’s commitment to workforce diversity stems from the firm’s mission. As one of the leading corporate immigration law firms, BAL knows that in order to speak to the legal needs of the world, the firm must look like the world. With this in mind, BAL has a long record of promoting women and minorities. Throughout the firm’s ranks, women are leading the way. Of BAL’s more than 775 professional staffers, more than 70 percent are women. But this diversity is also found in the highest ranks. Of their more than 100 total attorneys, solicitors, and immigration managers, approximately 62 percent are women, and among their 18 U.S.-based partners, 11 are women. Three women hold the title of equity partner, the highest post at the firm. Frieda Garcia works in the San Francisco office and provides guidance on global initiatives, development of

best-in-class programs, and advice regarding requirements within various jurisdictions. Carla Tarazi also works in the San Francisco office and offers comprehensive immigration solutions to Fortune 500 clients.

he future of our country is in the hands of today’s teens. Wright, Constable & Skeen LLP is counting on that principle with its pro bono initiative Rosie the Lawyer. Alongside Baltimore’s CollegeBound Foundation, the firm is reshaping the perception of what it means to be a woman in the law. By highlighting different practice areas—particularly those that don’t typically see a lot of women—Rosie the Lawyer is able to offer high school girls in Baltimore a new perspective on the law industry

outside of what they’ve seen in television and movies. The program began in 2013, when Lisa Sparks, a construction lawyer with Wright, Constable & Skeen, coupled with the CollegeBound Foundation. The program started small with only a handful of attorneys, and through the help of their marketing director has expanded its reach. The program went from being made up of four firm attorneys to involve the efforts of six firm attorneys, two judges, and two in-house counsel, and Ms. Sparks has kept it running since. It has also achieved local and national recognition, including being a recipient of the prestigious Mayor’s Business Recognition Award, which is given to Baltimore firms for pro bono efforts that have achieved far-reaching impacts on the community. “I run all of the sessions,” Sparks said. “I’m there from beginning to end with the young ladies, and sort of introduce our speakers and talk them through some discussions and activities.” At the ripe age of 22 and as a firstgeneration college student, Sparks became a lawyer after graduating from the University of Baltimore. She has a background that’s relatable to many of the high school students, which is also a common thread among the lawyers and judges involved in Rosie the Lawyer: they got to where they are in their careers due to their personal drive and determination. Rosie the Lawyer comprises four sessions in a fall semester, lasting approximately three and a half hours each. The first session is a meet and greet with the lawyers, who talk about their backgrounds, experiences, and practice areas. This session is invaluable to the students, offering them a perspective that puts them on a level playing field and shows them that women can succeed in male-dominated areas of law. In

“...their voices are important... and their voices matter.”

the second session, the girls meet a judge and observe her in a courtroom environment. The second day is business etiquette training, which focuses on how to dress, eat, and act in professional settings, as well as interview etiquette and building selfconfidence for those interviews. The third session is at the courthouse where the girls meet with judges, first in their chambers and then in the courtroom where they get to see the judges in action. The fourth and final session is a wrap up, a refresher, and culmination. The girls share highlights of the sessions over the past four months, lessons learned, and views changed or reinforced as well as ways that Rosie has affected their longand short-term plans as they move into their junior year and start thinking about the possibilities after graduation. Michelle Gomola, a family law attorney at Wright, Constable & Skeen and one of the attorneys who met with the students, recalls an inspirational guidance counselor from her high school who created a shadowing program that let students follow professionals in any career field. That was how she connected with law, and it ultimately brought her to the firm where she happily shares her experience with the Rosie students. “I got to speak with the ladies about my background and experiences with becoming a lawyer, and then my experiences with family law, being a family law attorney and what that means, what type of cases I handle. Then I answered all of their questions about family law,” she said. Many of the girls already had a basic understanding of the practice area, as they had witnessed divorces or struggles over custody within friends’ families or their own.

And in addition to questions about law, there were plenty of questions about balancing work and personal affairs. “They were also asking about balancing my career and my personal life and how one does that. So it was neat for me, because I actually have a relatively new perspective on that, because I have a two-year-old and a six-month-old.” Another lawyer involved in the program, Alicia Wilson of Sagamore Development, said, “I think one of the highlights is always meeting and having that turning point, when the young ladies go from being shy and a little removed from what you’re saying and what you’re trying to do, and then they open up and start telling you about their hopes and dreams and their fears and their anxieties. And you hope to try and work them through that and build them up to understand one of the things that we as lawyers understand: that their voices are important and that their voices matter, how to advocate for themselves. But, more importantly, to dream of things that they may have never dreamed of being before, whether it’s a lawyer or judge—and the many different aspects of what it means to be a lawyer.” For students to get involved in the program, they need to apply through CollegeBound. Between 15 and 20 students are accepted each year. Zyrashae Smith is in charge of that process and also attends every session. “My job was coordinating things on the school side of it all: gathering the applicants, contacting them, keeping in contact with the students to get their applications in, encouraging them to come, and coordinating between the program and my school and other schools.”

Being at every session offered her the opportunity to see first-hand just how much it impacted the students. “It had a huge effect on them, especially the last session. We really got a chance to sit down and reflect on the things that we learned in the program.” She added that “having the opportunity to really see first-hand and interact first-hand with women who have gone through things, who have been successful … that was very important. And having it over a couple of months allowed the girls to consistently get that reinforcement of, ‘This is possible. This is what you can do. This is how you do it.’” This was a sentiment that Ms. RodgersWaire also shared. “I think it’s important for people who may not have had that exposure in their own backgrounds to get access to lawyers and how they work and where they came from and what they do in their practice, because otherwise they may not even consider it as a career.” This year’s session allowed the girls to watch Circuit Court Judge Audrey

Carrion as she presided over an asbestos trial as well as Judge Diana Smith, who allowed them to sit in on a landlord/ tenant proceeding in the district court that she presides over. Judge Carrion first became interested in law when she would visit from Puerto Rico and join her grandfather, a notary public who lived in the Bronx, at the attorney’s office where he worked. While attending the College of Notre Dame, she had an internship with Judge Robert B. Watts, who became a mentor to her. She went on to graduate from the University of Baltimore Law School and worked with Russell & Thompson, who later merged with Piper and Marbury. “When there is a group or organization such as Rosie that involves young women who are leaders in their own way, I certainly would sign up for that. It’s not an imposition at all to meet with them; in fact, my whole chambers look forward to it.” Breyana Wade, a sophomore at the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute who is interested in becoming a prosecutor, attended this year’s Rosie the Lawyer

session. She became interested in law when she realized she had a knack for arguing her point while on her school’s debate team, and she felt particularly impacted by watching Judge Carrion. “I like watching how they had to go back and forth with it. And I was like, ‘This is just really what I want to do.’ Being in that atmosphere and being in the courtroom, I felt like that was where I belong.” And she wasn’t the only one. Regarding the other girls involved, Wade said, “I felt like this program really helped them decide what kind of lawyer they would want to be.” She added, “I felt like it really set the foundation and gave them insight on where they want to go.” Rosie the Lawyer will continue to help girls in Baltimore by offering them insight into the legal field and introducing them to male-dominated areas of the law. According to the American Bar Association3, only 36 percent of the legal field is composed of women. Rosie the Lawyer serves as an example of what kind of change is possible.

VIEWPOINTS

FCC STAYS ISP PRIVACY AND CYBERSECURITY RULES In Favor of FTC Approach to Privacy Regulation BY AARON GEORGE AND LAURA JEHL

L

ast October, in a vote split along party lines, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) under thenchairman Tom Wheeler approved a new regulatory regime staking the FCC’s claim to aggressive privacy and cybersecurity regulation of Internet service providers (ISPs). The privacy and cybersecurity rules followed the FCC’s 2015 decision in the Open Internet Order (known as net neutrality) to classify broadband Internet access service as a telecommunications service under Title II of the Communications Act.

“THE FCC’S RULES ARE ON THE BOOKS NOW, WITH THE SUBSTANTIVE REQUIREMENTS SCHEDULED TO TAKE EFFECT IN STAGES OVER THE COURSE OF 2017.” One effect of the FCC’s 2015 Open Internet Order was to remove the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) oversight of ISPs by classifying them as common carriers exempted from Section 5 of the FTC Act. The FCC’s new privacy regime thus sought to fill the privacy gap left by the agency’s classification decision, but the FCC’s privacy rules went far beyond the guidelines established by the FTC. The FCC’s rules would firmly establish the FCC as the

28 |

toughest privacy regulator in the Internet ecosystem by imposing significantly more onerous and restrictive requirements for use and collection of consumer data on ISPs than the FTC imposed on their non-ISP competitors who also collect, use, and share consumer data. The FCC’s privacy rules share some characteristics with the FTC’s longstanding regulation in this space, including requiring fixed ISPs and mobile data carriers that offer broadband services to obtain affirmative opt-in consent from consumers prior to using, sharing, or selling sensitive information. The FCC’s definition of sensitive information, however, is far more expansive than the FTC’s definition and includes geo-location information, web browsing, and app usage history in addition to the health and financial information considered sensitive by the FTC. Under the FCC’s rules, consumers would be entitled to opt out and prevent ISPs from using and sharing nonsensitive individually identifiable customer information as well. The FCC rules also require ISPs to provide customers with information about their collection, use, and sharing of consumer data to comply with additional protocols, protect consumer information, and adhere to new notification protocols in the event of a data breach that includes consumer information. The FCC’s rules are on the books now, with the substantive requirements scheduled to take effect in stages over the course of 2017. Several parties have filed petitions for reconsideration that are currently pending

BUSINESS EDITION | SPRING 2017

before the agency. Following the change in administration and the ascendancy of new FCC chairman, Ajit Pai, the status of the FCC’s new privacy regime (and the agency’s decision to classify ISPs as common carriers under Title II) is in question. On March 1, 2017, the FCC entered an interim stay of the new rules related to data security, which were set to take effect on March 2, 2017, pending the agency’s resolution of the petitions for reconsideration. The FCC did not stay other aspects of the new rules, which have not yet taken effect. The same day, Chairman Pai and acting FTC Chairman Maureen Ohlhausen released a joint statement announcing their belief that the FTC should be restored as the privacy regulator for ISPs (which would require reclassifying ISPs as non-common carriers) and that, in the meantime, the FCC’s privacy rules should be harmonized with the FTC’s standards applicable to other companies in the Internet ecosystem. It remains to be seen whether and how the FCC ultimately will revise its privacy and cybersecurity rules to align with the FTC’s standards. To the extent it is able to do so, the FCC’s approach could prove a useful template for other agencies seeking to harmonize their privacy and cybersecurity regulations with the FTC’s standards. The FCC’s approach also could serve as a valuable compass for other industries hoping for clear and uniform privacy and cybersecurity requirements across their various federal regulators.


WHAT’S NEXT FOR NETWORK NEUTRALITY?

ack in the 1990s, getting online required a dial-up connection to an Internet service provider (ISP). Dialup had limited bandwidth, but getting into the business was easy: the ISP just had to buy equipment, upstream connections to the Internet, and connect through phone lines for incoming calls. To overcome dial-up’s limitations, cable operators deployed cable modem service, and telephone companies deployed digital subscriber line (DSL) service. At that time, telephone companies had to offer DSL to competitors, but cable operators didn’t have to share their networks. Dial-up ISPs, desperate for higher bandwidth, pressed for access to cable networks. The issue came to a head in 2002 when the FCC said cable broadband was an unregulated “information service,” not a “telecommunications service,” so no access was required. The Supreme Court agreed in 2005, and the FCC promptly extended the ruling to DSL. At that time, the FCC issued an “Internet Policy Statement” setting out the basic ideas of net neutrality: unfettered access to all lawful content; the ability to run any lawful applications; and the ability to connect devices that don’t harm the network. The problem was that the FCC had just declared broadband to be unregulated. Where did it get the authority to impose obligations—even just “policies”—on an unregulated market? Answering that question took 10 years. The D.C. Circuit rejected one FCC legal rationale after another, even as the agency refined and expanded its rules. Finally, in 2015, the FCC reversed its earlier view and held that broadband was a regulated telecommunications service. This provided

clear authority to establish network neutrality rules. The D.C. Circuit accepted that decision and approved the FCC’s rules in June 2016. Treating broadband as a regulated telecommunications service was hugely controversial; both Republican commissioners—Commissioner O’Reilly and now-Chairman Pai—dissented. Chairman Pai has now said he wants to step back and impose only “light-touch” regulation on broadband ISPs. When control of the FCC shifts from one party to another, it’s natural for the new chairman to pursue a new regulatory approach. So it’s no surprise that Chairman Pai, as a general matter, wants to regulate less heavily. The question is: how will he go about it? One possibility is to leave the existing legal regime, broadband classified as a telecommunications service, in place while rolling back specific regulatory obligations. For example, the FCC has already exempted small ISPs from some obligations under the rules and has stayed the controversial privacy rules for broadband ISPs. Notably, the current rules already formally “forbear” from applying large swaths of telecommunications regulations to broadband ISPs, and the Pai FCC could choose even greater forbearance. Another possibility is to go back to viewing broadband as an information service and impose scaled-back regulations using a provision of the law known as Section 706, which the FCC tried to rely on before. The challenge would be that the D.C. Circuit has held, in effect, that Section 706 does not support imposing the core net neutrality obligations—no blocking of,

or discrimination against, lawful content— on information service providers. In fact, this ruling is likely what drove the FCC to treat broadband as a telecommunications service in the first place. Chairman Pai may be able to find some viable “light touch” net neutrality rules that would work under Section 706.

“WHEN CONTROL OF THE FCC SHIFTS FROM ONE PARTY TO ANOTHER, IT’S NATURAL FOR THE NEW CHAIRMAN TO PURSUE A NEW REGULATORY APPROACH.” Still another possibility is to go all the way back to the original approach from 2005: to simply articulate “policies” that the FCC expects to be respected, even if they are not formally enforceable. This might work because, in 2017 as opposed to 2005, we know that the courts will accept regulating broadband as a telecommunications service. With a highly credible threat of potential regulation in the FCC’s arsenal, this might be enough to accomplish Chairman Pai’s lighttouch regulatory objectives. Nobody knows yet what the new chairman will do. But everyone is watching him closely. 1 In the Matter of Inquiry Concerning High-Speed Access to the Internet over Cable and Other Facilities; Internet over Cable Declaratory Ruling; Appropriate Regulatory Treatment for Broadband Access to the Internet over Cable Facilities, Declaratory Ruling and Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, 17 FCC Rcd 4798 (2002).

he millennial generation, known for switching jobs more frequently than previous generations, has started to influence the legal profession. Taking a cue from the younger generation, more senior attorneys are using lateral transitions to enhance their careers as well. For a variety of reasons, diverse attorneys change jobs at higher rates than other attorneys.1 But while lateral transitions are generally beneficial for both the attorney and the new law firm, those firms are now charged with finding more effective ways to quickly integrate lateral attorneys, particularly as those attorneys become more diverse. While most firms purportedly have an integration plan for laterals, these plans might benefit from a fresh approach that addresses the complexities of integrating diverse lateral candidates. Any subject involving race is always difficult to discuss; the integration of diverse lateral partners into the fabric of a large law firm falls within this category. Nonetheless, the subject deserves exploration; it is critical to the bottom line.

COVER STORY

According to the American Bar Association, in 1993, 8.3 percent of law firm associates and 2.5 percent of all partners were diverse.2 Today, approximately 20 percent of associates and 8.4 percent of all partners are diverse.3 This shift, while seemingly small, poses a unique set of challenges for the legal profession, which has historically lagged behind other professions in terms of diversity.4 In order to remain competitive, law firms must work to address the barriers that have inhibited the successful integration of diverse lateral attorneys, particularly as the numbers steadily increase. The racial makeup of attorneys is not the only change to be navigated. Women now make up 36 percent of the legal profession, including 45 percent of law firm associates and 18 percent of equity partners. Similarly, women account for almost 25 percent of Fortune 500 general counsels.5 These rising numbers of diverse and female attorneys represent an untapped opportunity for law firms to grow their books of business by reaching out to the social networks of the burgeoning numbers of diverse and female attorneys. In fact, it is our experience that approximately 40 percent of the decision-makers with whom our firm does business are women and approximately 24 percent of those are diverse. Of the remaining 60 percent of male decision-makers, 25 percent are diverse. It would not be wise to ignore relationships that diverse or female laterals may have with diverse in-house counsel, thereby potentially ignoring opportunities. This by no means indicates that diverse inhouse attorneys are the only source of business for other diverse attorneys. It is only one factor in a complex analysis regarding untapped potential frequently ignored when proper integration of diverse lateral partners is ignored. Lowering diverse lawyer attrition and enhancing lateral success is financially beneficial for law firms. Typically, it takes between three and 12 months before a firm recoups the initial costs of a lateral partner hire and longer for a lateral to become profitable.6 Focusing on successful integration of diverse

32 |

BUSINESS EDITION | SPRING 2017


laterals may expedite a firm’s return on its investment and ensure that expensive diverse lateral hires don’t flee the firm because of an unsuccessful onboarding experience. While successful lateral integration can be challenging in general, successfully integrating women and diverse lawyers requires strategic planning, innovation, and continuous evaluation. A determination to succeed in the integration process will have a positive impact on the financial bottom line for all involved.

STRATEGIC PLANNING

“LOW ER I NG DI V ER SE L AW Y ER AT T R I T ION A N D EN H A NCI NG L AT ER A L SUCCESS IS BEN EF ICI A L FOR L AW F I R MS.”

For female and minority attorneys, strategic planning is a crucial but sometimes neglected element of lateral integration. Welcoming a newcomer into a firm can be tricky. Without a formal plan, a new lawyer may arrive in a firm and feel out of place in its set culture, often contributing to the lateral’s inability to “catch on.” And if the lateral is female or diverse (or worse—both!), the feelings of isolation may be even more pronounced. Stereotypes and implicit biases may get in the way of the integration goal. This is, of course, counterproductive. It may seem like common sense, but many firms often fail to take advantage of the new synergies and contacts to be gained from adding a new diverse or female lateral partner. The increasing numbers of diverse and women lawyers in the profession means increasing opportunities to connect both in-house and outside counsel in meaningful relationships. It would be critical, therefore, to sit down with any lateral, and particularly a diverse or female lateral, to discern relationships they may have, activities in which they may have participated, and skills they honed during their career. Creating opportunities for a diverse lateral to interact with existing members of the firm in both casual and formal settings is essential. Making a concerted effort to get to know a diverse attorney on a personal basis can help ease their transition into the new workplace environment. These informal meetings are important ways of gauging the new attorney’s strengths and professional focuses in order to include the new lawyer in client introductions, RFPs, and client meetings. When we fail to get to know our lateral colleagues on a personal level, we may miss opportunities to strengthen the workplace and ultimately add to the bottom line.

Assessing diversity concerns is paramount to the strategic planning. As black female partners, we know first-hand the extensive and diverse network of lawyers and businesspeople that represent new opportunities to develop client relationships. Law firms can assist diverse lawyers in cultivating these relationships by alleviating concerns about origination credit and other forms of recognition. Acknowledging upfront that members of the firm may have relationships already with many of the same people that the new lateral partner has is an important first step. Embracing these relationships is extremely important― fostering them, even more so. Supporting the skillset of the lateral attorney is also critical when the lateral is a diverse attorney. Trusting that the diverse lateral lawyer adds value to existing matters helps the firm showcase talent, which in turn may lead to additional opportunities with existing and prospective clients.

INNOVATION

While there are a variety of ways to successfully integrate laterals, flexibility, teamwork, and inclusion are paramount to integration success. It is essential that law firms seeking to hire female or diverse attorneys implement ways to combat implicit biases and unequal distribution of work and credit. One way to accomplish this goal is to de-emphasize the billing hour, origination or billing credit, and realization rates. This would incentivize attorneys to help each other and place the success of the firm equally on all shoulders. An added benefit is that diverse attorneys are not penalized if it takes them slightly longer than other attorneys to get “up and running” in the new environment. Also within the innovation spectrum is embracing the notion that diverse and women attorneys tend to engage in more nontraditional business development opportunities. Golf and other sporting events tend to be the norm for non-diverse attorneys. Shopping sprees, spa outings, beer or wine tastings, book clubs, pro-bono activities, or child-

friendly events are all the rage among women and diverse attorneys. Support of these ideas for diverse and women laterals is often essential to their success and impact on the bottom line.

CONTINUOUS EVALUATION

Lateral moves are definitely a two-way street. Best practice for successful integration should also include the firm and the lateral constantly conducting self-reviews, the firm soliciting feedback from the diverse lateral, and requiring other attorneys to evaluate their own participation in the integration process. The law firm should track whether diverse laterals are included in client meetings, introduced to existing or prospective clients, included in brainstorming opportunities, and invited to business and personal networking and social events. Neglecting these actions can inhibit the integration process. Continued assessment provides an instant opportunity to make necessary adjustments in a timely manner. While time-consuming, continuous evaluation is time well spent if it results in better integration and success. When diverse attorneys are included in the essential elements of the firm, it necessarily follows that the firm will reap the financial benefits of a more diverse, stable, and focused law firm environment. It is no longer just good business practice to fully integrate diverse attorneys, but a business imperative to do so to compete in the marketplace. Successful lateral integration is absolutely possible, and legal employers that address the challenges inherent in the process for women and diverse laterals will have a better chance of enjoying a boost in both the bottom line as well as in office morale.

FIRST AMENDMENT & CIVIL RIGHTS LAW

CIVIL RIGHTS WORK HAS AN ALL NEW MEANING W

CORPORATIONS NOW USE FEDERAL LAW TO FIGHT REGULATION. By Thomas R. Julin

36 |

BUSINESS EDITION | SPRING 2017

hen lawyers talk about civil rights, they usually discuss protecting women and minorities against different forms of discrimination. When large U.S. corporations talk about civil rights, they have something quite different in mind. Work in the civil rights field increasingly involves battles against the government regulation of businesses. How did this happen? The Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Almost a century earlier, Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1871, which many referred to as the Ku Klux Klan Act because it was designed to stop state officials from depriving African-Americans of their federal rights. Codified as 42 U.S.C. ยง 1983, the act stated that any person who, under color of any state law, deprived a U.S. citizen or any person in the United States of any federal


right would be liable for damages and could be enjoined from committing future violations. This was a powerful tool that became even more powerful with the enactment of the Civil Rights Attorney’s Fees Awards Act of 1976, 42 U.S.C. § 1988, providing that one who prevails in a section 1983 action is entitled to recover attorney’s fees. These laws certainly were not passed with corporate America in mind. Large businesses usually got their way through well-funded lobbying efforts and supporting candidates who would act in their interests. But big business does come under attack by state officials from time to time. One example is a group of state laws that banned the sale of information for targeted marketing. The laws had been enacted in 2006 and 2007 after several big data companies found innovative ways to ensure that doctors knew about the most recent drug discoveries. The companies bought reams of data from large pharmacy chains, like CVS and Walgreens, and the data showed that many doctors weren’t prescribing the best drugs for their patients. The companies then sold this information to drug companies. States across the country became alarmed that this would drive up health care costs. Three states—New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont— banned pharmacies from continuing to sell their information.

The Reconstruction Civil Rights Act of 1871 came to the rescue, since the laws violated the companies’ rights under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to gather and sell information. It took six years of hard-fought litigation, however, to persuade federal judges that the old law could be used to protect businesses. Lower court judges were also quite divided on this. Ultimately, the U.S. Supreme Court resolved the matter by a vote of six to three in Sorrell v. IMS Health, Inc., 564 US 552 (2011). What is most exciting for civil rights lawyers is that Sorrell has opened the door to thousands of attacks on government regulations that limit the use of information, compel businesses to disclose data, or force businesses to advocate positions with which they disagree. Since 2011, Sorrell has been cited in more than 1,100 judicial opinions involving laws governing tobacco, meat, securities, credit cards, trademarks, guns, billboards, health care, and many other commercial activities. Not every challenge has been successful, because many judges still feel unsettled about seeing a Civil War-era law used to help big business. However, many challenges have been encountered and many more will be successful as the judiciary comes to accept that the law protects everyone’s federal civil rights.

HOW COURTS ARE INTERPRETING TITLE VII TO PROTECT LGBT WORKERS. By Elizabeth White

L

ast August, in a case called Winstead v. Lafayette Board of County Commissioners, the federal District Court for the Northern District of Florida held that an employee who was discriminated against for being gay could sue her employer under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The opinion is part of a quiet transformation of Title VII, gradually being recognized by federal district courts across the country, including those in Pennsylvania, Alabama, Oregon, the District of Columbia, California, and Florida. The statute has not seen a major amendment since 1991 and is silent about sexual-orientation discrimination. However, due to recent administrative agency action and the growing prevalence of an—until recently— seldom-used theory of liability prohibiting gender stereotyping, LGBT workers enjoy more protection under federal employment laws than ever in history. The Supreme Court has long held that employers cannot discriminate against employees for failing to conform to stereotypes about how members of their sex are expected to behave. Title VII actions for gender stereotyping came to prominence in 1989, in a case called Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins. There, a woman successfully sued her employer after she was passed over for a partnership because she failed to act the way a “woman should” and was told that she could increase her chances of promotion if she “walk[ed] more femininely, talk[ed] more femininely, dress[ed] more femininely, [wore] makeup, [had] her hair styled, and [wore] jewelry.” Fast forward two decades, and notions that “men should

be physically attracted to women” or “a person born female should self-identify as a woman” are now litigated under Title VII as forms of gender stereotyping, no different from requiring women to wear dresses or makeup at work. The Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) has largely been responsible for spearheading efforts to expand Title VII into this area. The Commission can issue decisions as to whether employers violated employment discrimination laws or bring a lawsuit on an employee’s behalf. In recent years, the Commission has issued determinations that certain employment actions taken against LGBT workers violate Title VII. These actions include failing to hire an applicant because she is a transgender woman, denying an employee a promotion because he is gay or straight, or harassing an employee because of a gender transition, such as by persistently using a name or gender pronoun that does not correspond with the employee’s gender identity. EEOC determinations are not binding on courts, and the Commission’s stance on these issues may bend with a new Republican administration in control of its funding and appointments of key staff members. However, these determinations provide both a glimpse into the future battlegrounds of Title VII litigation and a torch to pass on to private litigants seeking relief in federal court. In the very near future, gender identity and sexual orientation discrimination suits are likely to be as commonplace as the “traditional” sex and race discrimination claims courts frequently hear.

CAN PRESIDENT TRUMP CHANGE LIBEL LAW? By Deborah Drooz and Barry Langberg

D

onald Trump filed at least half a dozen libel cases in the course of his career, and he lost most of them. Apparently, he blames the nation’s libel law for his losses and for the press’ ability to make statements he does not like. It’s not surprising, then, that he threatened to radically alter those laws if elected president. Trump vowed during his campaign to “open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money.” Trump wants to sue the media as they have “never been sued before.” Can President Trump make good on his threat? Not likely. In this case, the “law” in question features the “actual malice” evidentiary standard that has governed public figure libel cases and protected the press since the Supreme Court’s 1964 decision in New York Times v. Sullivan. Under this standard, public figures must prove with convincing clarity that media defendants published defamatory statements about them with “knowledge of falsity or reckless disregard for truth.” Even plaintiffs that are not public figures have to prove actual malice in order to obtain punitive damages and often in order to obtain damages for presumed injury to reputation. The actual malice standard is rooted in the First Amendment and was created by the Supreme Court. It cannot be dissolved by executive fiat or revoked by legislation. Any attempt by a president to unilaterally repeal or circumvent the standard under the guise of discretionary executive action would undoubtedly violate constitutional restraints on executive authority. With Congressional approval, the president could theoretically appoint Supreme Court justices sympathetic to his views. (Perhaps New York Times v. Sullivan will take a place beside Roe v. Wade as a primary subject in Senate confirmation hearings.) But even if he were able to install several such justices, it is highly improbable that the standard would be changed. In order to overturn New York Times v. Sullivan, the Supreme Court would have to take up a new case that addressed the same First Amendment issues and would have to flout stare decisis to reach a different result than set forth in the more than 50-year-

old case that has been cited affirmatively in many subsequent Supreme Court decisions and thousands of lower court decisions. The president could appoint like-minded federal judges in the hope that they would interpret the fact-intensive actual malice standard in a more plaintiff-friendly way at the trial court level. However, such appointments would have minimal effect as long as the actual malice standard is in place, particularly since the trial court’s decision on the issue is subject to rigorous review on appeal. Also, many defamation cases proceed in state courts, where the president has no power of appointment. Trump could urge legislators to

“THE PRESIDENT COULD THEORETICALLY APPOINT SUPREME COURT JUSTICES SYMPATHETIC TO HIS VIEWS.” refrain from enacting a long-debated federal version of state antiSLAPP (Strategic Litigation against Public Participation) statutes. If successful, this would simply maintain the status quo. Of course, a constitutional amendment could change libel law. However, the likelihood of such an occurrence seems very remote. For example, Congress could propose an amendment under which public figures defamed on the Internet would be relieved of the obligation to prove actual malice. The proposal would first have to be approved by a supermajority and then ratified by three fourths of the state legislatures. In the end, it is doubtful that the president will succeed in changing defamation law significantly, although that may not stop him from trying.


Reputation is everything. Yours and ours. It’s why we proudly welcome the unparalleled experience and expertise in defamation counsel that Barry B. Langberg and Deborah Drooz bring to our firm.

“I

am responsible for ensuring that the positions we take in court remain consistent with this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right,” acting Attorney General Sally Yates wrote in a memo to Justice Department lawyers about President Trump’s executive order regarding the travel ban. “I am not convinced that the defense of the executive order is consistent with these responsibilities, nor am I convinced that the executive order is lawful.” Promptly after Sally Yates issued this statement, she was fired. In the days following Trump’s inauguration, the importance of the First Amendment has reached heights rarely seen in American history. Government efforts to limit First Amendment rights have also reached historical heights. While the removal of Ms. Yates may be legal,1 it highlights for the public what they perceive as the president’s continued battle with the freedoms of speech and religion. (Minutes after Ms. Yates was fired, the White House issued a statement that she, who served the United States for three decades, had “betrayed” the DOJ with her memo.)

Trump issued an executive order banning all Syrian refugees indefinitely and banning people from seven mostly Muslim countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen) for 90 days, which sparked spontaneous mass protests in airports across the country. The Environmental Protection Agency was ordered by the Trump administration to freeze all grants and contracts, and employees were told not to speak to members of the press about it. White House advisor Steve Bannon has described the media as the “opposition party,” which should, in his words, “keep its mouth shut.” 2 At least six journalists were charged with felony rioting for covering Inauguration Day protests that turned violent, according to The Guardian.3 Such severe charges against journalists reporting on a newsworthy public event are highly unusual in modern American history. To the public, the charges appear to be linked to a hostile climate fostered by Mr. Trump. The tension between Trump’s policy positions and the previously undisputed right of concerned citizens to challenge such positions is palpable. If there is any context where this tension will be felt the most, it is in the rights of the public to monitor law enforcement officers—that is, to observe, photograph, and film police as they perform their duties. In October 2016, before Yates made an unwise career move, the DOJ Civil Rights Division filed an amicus brief in the Third Circuit supporting the plaintiffs in Fields v. Philadelphia. In Fields, the district court had dismissed plaintiffs’ First Amendment retaliation claims, holding that there was no right to record police without engaging in additional forms of expressive conduct. The DOJ argued—on behalf of the plaintiffs— that increased recording of police conduct furthers the United States’ interest in promoting constitutional policing. It argued that photographing, video recording, or audio recording police activities are protected because each act of recording enables production of an expressive work. The recording is also protected as an information-gathering activity that later enables protected speech. This information gathering properly enables subsequent critical commentary on police activities, including documentaries, news reports, or complaints to oversight authorities.

SALLY YATES

Or at least it properly enabled such commentary according to the Obama DOJ. Whether the newly installed Trump DOJ will be of the same view remains an open question. Indeed, early impressions suggest that the basic premise of the amicus brief—that critical commentary of police is valuable in a democracy—won’t find much purchase in a “law and order” regime. Having previously argued in an amicus brief for a broad reading of the First Amendment, it remains to be seen whether the next attorney general will ensure that the positions the DOJ takes in court remain consistent with the institution’s solemn obligation to always defend the citizenry’s constitutional rights.

PRESIDENTIAL ATTACKS ON FREE SPEECH A THREAT TO OUR DEMOCRACY.

istock.com/StockWithMe, niknikon

By Jennifer M. Kinsley

BUSINESS EDITION | SPRING 2017


S

ince being elected president on November 7, 2016, Donald Trump has levied a host of threats to the First Amendment right of free speech. For example, in a pre-inauguration tweet, then President-elect Trump threatened to revoke the citizenship of any American who burned or defaced the flag, despite the fact that flag burning was declared to be protected expression nearly three decades ago.1 Since taking office, President Trump has further weakened the First Amendment by freezing the social media accounts of several federal departments and their employees2 and by terminating the employment of government officials who vocally disagreed with him, thereby chilling the right of government employees to speak out on matters of national political importance.3 Even more alarmingly, Trump previously vowed to “open up” the libel and slander laws, eliminating the constitutional protection for statements of opinion and on matters of public concern, 4 and to “close up” the internet to restrict the free flow of information.5 In the wake of these threats, lawyers must take a more active role in defending our right to free expression, particularly regarding matters of political and social significance. Preserving the right of free speech is critical, not only to maintain the marketplace of ideas that the First

Amendment embodies, but to ensure that channels exist for an open and robust dialogue as we move forward in a new age of government. After all, it is through protests, rallies, and the sharing of truthful information that we are collectively able to call attention to other constitutional threats. The First Amendment acts as a gateway to the exercise of other freedoms, but aside from the right to speak freely, many other constitutional rights are at risk as well. Lawyers must therefore be vigilant, both in calling out threats to our free speech rights and in creating strong protections for the First Amendment through judicial and extrajudicial means. These include: • Using state law to solidify state constitutional protection of expression. The highest courts of several states, including Oregon and Massachusetts, interpret their state constitutions to provide broader protection to expression than the First Amendment. Similar cases could be mounted in other states as well. • Lobbying local governmental bodies to remove existing barriers to the exercise of free speech rights and to expand their protection of political speech. Park boards, neighborhood associations, and city councils may be receptive to amending permit regulations that impact political events. These bodies may also be willing to create free speech zones on public property or repeal ordinances punishing speech in their jurisdictions. • Challenging federal regulations in federal court when they violate the First Amendment. The recent litigation challenging President Trump’s travel ban provides a strong model for how the federal courts can act as a check-and-balance system against unconstitutional executive orders. Our right of free expression hangs in the balance, and along with it, the constitutional future of our democracy. In these challenging times, we must not be silent, but must continue to speak out—and to speak up—for the First Amendment.

FLAG DESECRATION AS “SPEECH”

A BURNING ISSUE. By Martin B. Margulies

O

ur new president is no friend to the First Amendment. He has advocated curbs on journalists, violence against political demonstrators, and harsh punishment, such as imprisonment and loss of citizenship, for protesters who burn an American flag. The U.S. Supreme Court, however, has held in Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989) and U.S. v. Eichman, 496 U.S. 310 (1990) that flag-burning is protected under the First Amendment’s speech clause. Both decisions were right. It is true that the Amendment’s framers would not have thought of flag-burning as “speech.” It was not that they were strangers to non-verbal expression—remember the Boston Tea Party?—but the discourse most familiar to them was verbal: a newspaper article or an address on the town green. And that is what they wanted to protect. Today, though, times have changed. The town greens are empty, and many Americans lack access to a newspaper or other media outlet: they are not prominent enough for their speeches to be reported by a newspaper, articulate enough to write for one, or affluent enough to advertise in one. Even the Internet has not broadened expressive opportunities for

46 |

those who lack computers. An indigent speaker today who wishes to communicate to a sizable audience must find a way of attracting media attention—like publicly burning a flag. The flag-burning controversy therefore implicates the ancient debate over whether constitutional language should be construed as its authors literally intended (what proponents call “originalism”) or flexibly, so that original values are protected under modern conditions. But it implicates, as well, an issue unique to speech clause jurisprudence. The flag-burners prevailed in Johnson and Eichman because they were prosecuted under legislation that specifically targeted flag-burning. The Court pronounced the legislation “content-based” because it was enacted to suppress an offensive message. In consequence, it was subjected to “strict” judicial scrutiny, a standard that effectively foredoomed it. If instead the law had simply prohibited the public burning of any object, the result would probably have been different. The law would then have been characterized as “contentneutral” and hence received a lower level of scrutiny:

Peaceful Protesting By Peter Canfield, Laura Ellsworth, and Jamila Hall

“AN INDIGENT SPE AKER TODAY WHO WISHES TO COMMUNICATE TO A SIZ ABLE AUDIENCE MUST FIND A WAY OF AT TR ACTING MEDIA AT TENTION.”

Peaceful Protest Luncheon at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, Georgia, January 17, 2017.

A notionally “intermediate,” but in practice quite permissive. Under this standard, for instance, the Supreme Court upheld a regulation prohibiting demonstrators from camping overnight in Washington-area parks, even when their purpose was to dramatize the plight of the homeless. The government’s concerns, such as aesthetics and administrative convenience, outweighed the importance of speech. The content-based versus content-neutral dichotomy is flawed. It mutes impecunious speakers who must employ unconventional means of expression and, lacking property of their own, use public property to reach desired audiences. Further, it has content-based impacts, which means the muted speakers are the ones most disposed to challenge the mainstream. Law schools once taught that speech occupied a preferred position in relation to other values and was a means for people without property or power to acquire both. Today it is subordinate to aesthetics and administrative convenience, and one needs property and power in order to speak. Mr. Trump’s judicial appointees are unlikely to rectify the imbalance.

t the core of the First Amendment is the protection of “the right of the people to peaceably assemble,” a right best exercised with a nuanced understanding of not only First Amendment principles, but also criminal law and practice, media interest, and police and rescue personnel and procedures. In the summer of 2016, Jones Day attorneys of all levels, firm-wide and across practice groups, committed to making such an understanding more universally available by partnering with the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights to create training materials dedicated to teaching the rules of the road for peaceful protests in cities across the country. The materials, including “Know Your Rights” brochures customized for Atlanta, Baton Rouge, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Minnesota, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tulsa, and Washington, D.C., provided organizers and participants with practical and legal guidance on how to organize and protest peacefully, while offering law enforcement and public safety officials a legal primer on constitutional rights, local ordinances, and procedures currently in place to ensure that peaceful protestors can exercise their First Amendment rights. The materials were put to great use earlier this year at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta—the birthplace of Martin Luther King and a cradle of the nonviolent Civil Rights Movement—where peaceful protest is a right steeped in the city’s history. On January 17, 2017, the day after the national celebration of Dr. King’s birthday and just a few days before the presidential inaugural, Jones Day offered a public primer on how to effectively and safely protest at the Center’s downtown Atlanta auditorium. A capacity crowd of young and old, novices and veterans, responded, gathering to hear and question a panel of the firm’s lawyers, Atlanta’s assistant police chief and fire and rescue chief, and an Emmy awardwinning local news producer as they provided general information and specific tips and practical advice about how to successfully organize, conduct, and promote a safe and effective demonstration.

HATE CRIME LAWS IN A HATE-FILLED ERA

SPITTING AGAINST THE WIND. By Susan Gellman

48 |

BUSINESS EDITION | SPRING 2017


T

he 2016 election unleashed a flood of racist and nativist invective in America, and hate crimes across the country have skyrocketed. So you’d think that hate crime laws would be even more important than ever, and you might worry that the Trump administration’s apparent desire to cut government regulation in general, as well as Mr. Trump’s repeated derision of “political correctness” in particular, would lead to repeal or tepid enforcement of these laws. But that’s not the problem. Hate crime and hate speech laws have always been problematic. Their constitutionality is questionable, and they’re ineffective at reducing hate crime. But because it’s important, activists and legislatures have struggled to draft effective and constitutional hate crime laws. In the Trump era, though, it’s an outright surreal exercise to discuss what types of laws would be best at fighting bigotry and hate crime. When it’s the highest level of government itself, including the president and his chief strategist, that are the leading enablers—and sometimes disseminators—of bigoted speech and threats of discrimination, what kind of legislation (never mind its constitutionality) does anyone expect could beat back the predictable, even inevitable, increase in hate crimes and hate speech? Perpetrators of hate crimes now act with what they perceive as a newfound—and perhaps long-desired—government-issued license to air their hatred and commit their offenses. When you make anti-Muslim sentiment the

coin of the current realm, you’re inviting people to invest in it. Any attempt to craft policies deterring hate crime goes beyond the proverbial rearrangement of deck chairs on the Titanic. It’s trying to decide what kind of decorative cushions to put on those seats while the ship is already sinking. But this is worse, actually— more akin to taking the seats from the lifeboats. Approaching the issue as per usual belittles the crisis of increased bigotry and hate crime. Ignoring that the rules of the game have changed by the very people entrusted with protecting us normalizes the bigotry-friendly climate and

legitimizer of and provider of the leading platform for the racist, anti-Semitic, anti-Islamist, antiimmigrant, misogynistic, hatredpeddling “alt-right,” to a position of power and influence. President Trump’s disavowal of even the worst of the crimes and invective his campaign unleashed has been far too few, far too late, and far too feeble. Or entirely absent: when a reporter asked Mr. Trump—first explicitly acknowledging that he saw no evidence that Mr. Trump is himself anti-Semitic—about the recent rash of anti-Semitic incidents, including bomb threats to dozens of Jewish community centers, and what plans the administration had to address it, the president’s response was, “Number one, I am the least antiSemitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life. Number two, racism. The least racist person. In fact, we did very well relative to other people running as a Republican.” He accused the reporter of insulting him and lying, told him to sit down, and added that bigoted harassment was actually the work of “the other side,” designed to foment anger among “people like you” against “people that love or live Donald Trump.” Unsurprisingly, there was not a word condemning or even commenting on the rise of anti-Semitism to its highest levels since the 1930s, let alone any plans to combat it. Criminal laws are hamhanded tools for effecting social change, even in the best of times. But no law intended to curb hate has a chance when the president himself winks at it and encourages it daily.

Parents struggle with what to tell their children about lying and bullying when they see their president do it without consequence.

C H R I S T I N A B O S T S E A T O N How do you think firms/companies can develop environments fertile for success?

 ne of the best ways employers can foster an O environment fertile for success is by training employees to recognize and correct for their implicit biases. This helps to create a workplace culture where employees are more likely to have the opportunity to succeed on the basis of their merit.

Harvard University’s Project Implicit continues to

demonstrate the numerous ways in which each of us harbors—often unknowingly—associations between certain types of people and their perceived strengths and weaknesses. By learning how to identify our implicit biases, we can re-design our processes and systems to try to protect against these biases and protect against our own biases when making decisions.

What strategies do you employ to win business? F  or me, the best strategy to win business has been maintaining real, authentic relationships with people from a variety of stages of my life. In my experience, clients hire lawyers, not law firms. Some of my clients hired me because we were already friends, and others hired me because I was referred to them by someone they

trusted. Each and every client came to me as a result of my personal relationships, and many of my clients have become my friends over time.

By what standards do you measure success?

I think each of us can only measure success by our own standards. There is no one measure of success. One of the best things about getting older, for me, has been gaining the confidence to benchmark my success against myself and my goals as opposed to against other people.

For me, success has meant reaching a point where I have

control over my career. I am able to decide what kind of work I want to be doing, how many hours I want to be billing, and from where I want to work each day or whether I’d like to take a morning off so I can go with my daughter to her music class. My vision of success— today—isn’t about maximizing the dollars I take home or the prestige of the name on my business card (although both things are important to me), but instead it’s about exercising control. By having increased control over my career, I am also able to devote time to other things that are also important to me, such as my volunteer service and my family. My vision of success may be very different 10 or 20 years from now.

How do you think firms/companies can develop environments fertile for success?

F  irst and foremost, hire top talent. Second, train and support your people to be the very best lawyers in their practice area. Third, for firms, implement formal training on effective business development and retention for all junior lawyers. Fourth, encourage and directly reward collaboration and teamwork. Fifth, elect strong, strategic, and compassionate leadership. Last, it is important to foster a collegial and fun work environment so your attorneys and staff enjoy going to work.

What is one of your proudest moments, inside or outside your career? A  s a young lawyer, after a two-week trial having a judge

read my first jury verdict. I had never worked so hard in my life. The verdict was for my client. The other side was very sympathetic, and we represented a large company, so the challenge was to convince the jurors to set aside sympathy and apply the facts to the law. They did so. I was so proud of the result but also of our jury system. Twenty years later, I still believe it is the best system in the world.

By what standards do you measure success?

T here is financial success, of course, but I do not view that as success if you do not also enjoy what you do and create value for others. For me it is all three. I want to help support my family by doing something I love and hopefully, while doing so, I am having a positive impact on my clients, colleagues, firm, and the overall community in which I practice. www.bestlawyers.com | 5 3

Was there anyone along the way who mentored or influenced your work?

I learned a great deal about the kind of lawyer I wanted to be by watching, observing, and listening to other lawyers—both positive role models and others that exhibited behaviors and mannerisms that I did not wish to adopt as my own. While it is critical to develop excellent legal skills and expertise in your practice area, it is more important to have a reputation for honesty, professionalism, civility, and integrity.

What is one of your proudest moments, inside or outside of your career?

A  s to professional accomplishments, in 2013, I was honored to receive the Jerold S. Solovy Award from Jenner & Block. This award recognizes attorneys who have demonstrated exceptional service to the organized bar and to the community. The award, named for Jenner & Block’s esteemed late chairman emeritus, honors those attorneys who exemplify Mr. Solovy’s unwavering dedication to the

organized bar, the public good, and the highest ideals of the legal profession. This award means a great deal to me because it came from my firm and honors Mr. Solovy’s lifelong love of the law and his untiring commitment to give back to those in need through his pro bono work and community involvement.

By what standards do you measure success?

I think how you view or define professional success is a very individual inquiry and no two lawyers probably view it the same way. For me, being successful as a lawyer means being an important part of and contributor to your firm or practice group, earning the role as a trusted business advisor to long-standing clients and knowing that your counsel and advice on critical legal issues matters to them, and having the good fortune to enjoy what you do and who you represent and work with on a regular basis. A very important part of success is finding a place you belong and having the opportunity to make a difference.

Was there anyone along the way who mentored or influenced your work?  ruce Boruszak, my summer associate mentor and one B of the chairs of the real estate department when I started practicing law, was my mentor. We worked closely on a number of deals for the first seven years of my practice and continue to work on deals together now that he became general counsel. Aside from him, I would credit my clients with mentoring and influencing my work. While not attorneys for the most part, they are truly wise businesspeople and have taught me how to analyze risk vs. reward and to look for creative solutions to solve problems. Without understanding how clients see a transaction, it is hard to be an effective transactional attorney.

How do you think firms/companies can develop environments fertile for success?

I n private practice, I believe firms would find greater success if the metrics for compensation and promotion were changed from evaluation on an individual basis. No matter how successful a team or how rich the experience

of a subject matter for a particular firm, compensation and evaluation systems that reward named billing partners will never foster the type of collaboration needed to create cohesive team environments and best service clients. With respect to the advancement of women, the institutional stereotypes need to be removed. Attorneys at all levels need to be educated on implied bias, as this tends to be the primary force that holds women back. I truly believe that if every attorney was made aware of the unconscious bias that affects women and can recognize unconscious bias in their own actions, they would strive to counteract it.

What strategies do you employ to win business?

Nothing beats good work and open communication. While continually striving to obtain and maintain the right credentials to win business in my area of practice, I truly believe that most opportunities are driven by hard work and a proven track record. Being vocal in asking for work or marketing your capabilities is important, but having a relationship of trust and confidence takes time to achieve.

I also enjoy the challenge of putting together

K A T H E R I N E M I N A R I K What brought you to your specific practice area?  n open mind, curiosity about complicated things, and A good fortune. I split my practice between IP litigation and major commercial contract disputes. When I first started practicing law, I would not have predicted that particular combination. But when I arrived at my firm, I was open to working on any case that was interesting. And I quickly found that I loved digging into complicated patents and contracts and the technology underlying them. There’s no more magic to it than that. I truly enjoy the trickiest legal puzzles, and I was fortunate enough to find myself at a firm where I could regularly tackle those puzzles.

PHOTO BY CALLIE LIPKIN

What is one of your proudest moments, inside or outside your career?

 ne of my proudest moments was in many ways a simple O moment that simply felt momentous. A few years ago, I was eight months pregnant with my daughter and I did a multi-hour summary judgment argument in federal court. I sat down for the final time at the end of the argument with nothing on my mind but whether I had made every point as well as I could. And then it occurred to me that my ability to be there that day had come on the shoulders of many determined, ambitious women lawyers before me, including many who were not given the same opportunity I was.

Perhaps in some courtrooms, I might have still gotten a strange look or two. And certainly a couple decades earlier, few corporate clients would have been so unconcerned about the courtroom performance abilities of a pregnant woman. But on the day of my argument, in my mind, in my clients’ minds, in the court’s mind, I was just a lawyer. So in some small way, I was part of the path of progress for women lawyers and quite a positive step. I’m still thrilled by that (and because my client got a nice result as well).

By what standards do you measure success?

M  any years ago, I had to make one of those big life choices. I ultimately made the decision by picking the option that required me to believe in my own potential the most. And it turned out wonderfully. So now, I have a personal philosophy that I like to call “bet on yourself.” If I’m unsure of whether I can do something challenging, if I’m unsure whether to tackle something new, then I remind myself that the best decision is to bet on myself. Because of that, I think I tend to measure my success by whether I’ve done more than I once believed myself capable of doing. It motivates me to keep taking risks, to learn from imperfect outcomes rather than get defeated, and to appreciate that the most rewarding tasks are often the ones that don’t come easily from the beginning. And success is really just my past self, smiling into the future at what I’ve been able to do. www.bestlawyers.com | 6 1

F  irms and companies are statistically more successful when they engage in at least the following practices: (1) invest in their employees, particularly junior employees; (2) invest in creating a diverse work environment by including middle- and high-ranking persons from various backgrounds, thereby tapping into a wellspring of fresh ideas and perspectives; and (3)firms and companies should take the time to foster mentoring communities through which junior employees are empowered to create informal or formal mentor relationships.

What is one of your proudest moments, inside or outside your career? M  y proudest moments have been the work that I have done in giving back to my community by advancing

the rights of women via my pro bono work or within my firms. My pro bono work is almost exclusively with organizations working with those affected by domestic violence.

I found the trials and entire legal proceedings fascinating! That’s when I got my first “itch� to go into law.

What brought you to your specific practice area?

To be a great general counsel, I believe one has to have adaptability, a thirst for knowledge, the ability to build constituencies and a wide variety of experience in different areas of the law. It was all of these drivers that lead me to my position at Alliant Credit Union over 9 years ago. Experience as a litigator, a prosecutor, in private practice, with the government and with a global

R I T C H I E

technology consulting firm, gave me the background necessary to excel in the financial services industry as trusted counsel. I thrive on the variety of challenges and subject matter that comes my way on a daily basis. Most of all, I am driven to help my company and its business partners succeed.

How do you think firms/ companies can develop environments fertile for success?

I believe that both firms and companies can help their employees succeed by ensuring that the employees understand what is expected from them and how that employee will be evaluated. Making sure that a manager and his or her direct report understand how success will be measured is vital (that includes the measurement of success for the company or firm, the team and the individual). Encouraging development and growth are also important. I believe that managing attorneys is very

different than managing others. The most successful companies and firms convey the message that employees are valued, that their opinions count and that they will be rewarded for their success.

What strategies do you employ to hire outside counsel?

In Chicago, we have many talented attorneys from which to choose to handle legal matters. I am continuously meeting and evaluating potential outside counsel. First impressions do count. If I am favorably impressed by an attorney at a CLE or networking function, I file that information away. Then, when it comes time to vet different attorneys and firms, I pull out that information and often call on those folks to discuss the possibility of working with us. I always tell people not to underestimate the value of networking and making a great first impression. At the end of the day, selection will depend on criteria such as subject matter knowledge, fit and price/value. www.bestlawyers.com | 6 7

I was assigned to work for a partner who handled a lot of the firm’s trademark and copyright litigation. This allowed me to develop something of an expertise in trademark and copyright law, which was very helpful when I moved to CBS. At CBS, I handle much of the intellectual property litigation (including trademark, copyright, and more recently, patent cases) and serve as the cohead of the CBS law department’s intellectual property group.

Was there anyone along the way who mentored or influenced your work?

I have had many mentors over the years, both male and female, all of whom have provided me with guidance and positively influenced my work. Undoubtedly, my biggest mentor and role model was my mother. She attended law school when I was in high school and then became a practicing lawyer. Through her words and actions, she taught me that women can achieve anything they set their minds to and that no goal is out of reach.

What is one of your proudest moments, inside or outside your career?

A  s a relatively junior in-house lawyer, I supervised a defamation lawsuit involving a CBS News report that aired on “60 Minutes” (Kastrin v. CBS). The case culminated in a two-week trial in El Paso, Texas, in which the jury found in our favor. Another career highlight was working on the Aereo copyright infringement case (CBS was one of a number of broadcasters who objected to Aereo’s Internet streaming service). The case went up to the U.S. Supreme Court, and the broadcasters ultimately prevailed. It was wonderful to have the chance to work with so many talented people, including many individuals at CBS, both inside and outside the CBS law department, our outside counsel, as well as my counterparts at the other networks. We achieved a great result for the company, and it is one of my proudest accomplishments. 68 |

I became interested in the legal profession after working nearly 10 years in non-profit organizations championing educational research, reform, and services for low-income children. My parents were public school music teachers and ministers of music at our church, so my brother and I are also classically trained musicians. We sing and play several instruments. I noticed increasingly that so much of our lives was regimented by laws about which we knew little, and lawyers seemed to be perceived (for the most part) by our community members as intimidating rather than helpful. I was selected to be a community representative on the Legal Services Board of North Carolina while I was quite young and reveled in the intellectual discussion at our board meetings while worrying that many of us did not actually understand what the lawyers were staying. After five years as a “gadfly” on the board, I was encouraged by many of the lawyers to go to law school myself. And so I did. I have never regretted that decision, although I was 33 before I launched my career as an attorney.

Anna Diggs Taylor, I enjoyed my experience so much that I thought I would love being a litigator and came to New York to pursue that dream.

associate at a really great law firm, I was recruited by the Federal Trade Commission to a position as litigator that soon morphed into a role as a senior manager, litigation supervisor, community advocate, and intra-organizational educator. I loved having the opportunity to help people both within and without the organization and believe that all of the myriad jobs I have held helped to prepare me for the moment when I advanced from being a member of the staff to supervising the staff. While at the FTC, I learned about consumer marketing, data privacy, and security (an emerging practice area) and much, much more. I could never have imagined that I would become a social media marketing law maven. It is challenging, scary, and fun!

What is one of your proudest moments, inside or outside your career?

 ne of my proudest moments is graduating from Yale O Law School in 1983, while my maternal grandmother, Mrs. Eva Belle Coleman Coles, was still alive. She had a sixth grade education, yet raised five children successfully to adulthood, all of whom obtained degrees ranging from bachelor’s degrees to doctoral degrees while raising families and contributing to their communities. My grandmother was 4’ 11’’ and, in order to make sure she could see me receive my law school diploma, stood from the time they began reading names until I walked across the stage. She was 87 years old. In my mind’s eye, I can still see her standing there, waiting patiently, until my name was called. I shall never forget her. www.bestlawyers.com | 6 9

decade ago, a small group of women attorneys in Chicago scattered among different law firms put out a small call to action: come to a meeting and share your experiences about being a woman lawyer in our city. A few weeks later, a couple dozen women found their way to a law firm conference room over a lunch hour. They began sharing their stories with one another, nodding along to shared experiences, and quickly running out of time for a conversation that had only skimmed the surface of their agenda. So, not surprisingly, from that meeting an idea was born. The women talked about the “women’s initiatives” at their own law firms. But what if those women’s initiatives worked together? Could they could accomplish more for women attorneys together than they could alone? Surely the answer was yes. From that meeting, the Coalition of Women’s Initiatives in Law was created almost 10 years ago as a collaborative network of women’s initiatives across law firms. A law firm could join the Coalition and all of its women attorneys would have access to the shared programs, resources, and network of the Coalition. A few years later, the Coalition expanded its membership to include companies’ and non-profit organizations’ legal departments so that in-house women attorneys could participate in Coalition activities as well. Today, the Coalition is a non-profit membership association comprised of representatives of women’s initiatives in Chicago and New York area law firms and corporations. The Coalition’s mission remains the same now a decade into existence: to provide positive avenues of communication, support, networking, and career advancement for women lawyers. Any

he “Women of Influence” awards are the result of the first-ever collaboration between the Coalition of Women’s Initiatives in Law and Best Lawyers. Coalition members in both private and general practice submitted nominations, with each nominee named for her outstanding work in her area of expertise. Ballots were counted and evaluated by Best Lawyers publication editors, and final awards were based upon a number of factors, including number of nominations, votes, nominator feedback, editorial research, and inclusion in the 23rd Edition of The Best Lawyers in America. We at Best Lawyers believe that an endorsement by one’s peers is one of the highest forms of recognition within the legal profession. We are pleased to co-host this special feature with the Coalition of Women’s Initiatives in Law this year and look forward to its growth in years to come.

law firm or company with lawyers based in the Chicago or New York areas that are committed to addressing issues facing women lawyers in the firm or company is welcome to join the Coalition. The Coalition’s membership now includes more than 100 law firms and companies across the Chicago and New York chapters. Every year, the Coalition chapters host dozens of in-person and online programming for our members—all of which are free for our members’ attorneys and most of which provide CLE credit. Last year, the Chicago Coalition hosted more than 20 programs, including our Fourth Annual Managing Partner/ General Counsel Forum featuring Elena Kraus, the General Counsel of Walgreen Co., and our Sixth Annual Leadership Forum featuring Brigadier-General Maritza Ryan, along with more targeted programming on substantive legal issues, climbing the career jungle gym, and utilizing personality style to be a more effective leader. Meanwhile, the New York Coalition hosted nine programs in its first full year of programming, including a Women in the Courtroom panel with federal and state court women judges. Collectively, the Coalition’s programming reached more than 1,000 women attorneys in 2016 alone. The Coalition chapters grow every year—in membership and programming numbers—because of the strength and determination of the women attorneys at our member firms and companies who enthusiastically champion one another. And now as the Coalition begins its second decade, the number of Coalition chapters is growing as well with two potential new chapters already in planning stages for 2017–18.

FAMILY LAW

e live in distressing times, where the divorce rate is the highest in the history of California and America overall. Therefore, it is important to be familiar with child support and child custody laws even if you are in a happy relationship. Understanding the law doesn’t mean you are looking for alternatives but preparing yourself in case bad times come your way in the near or far future.

A Child’s Best Interest Understanding custody issues in California courts.

BY ELIZABETH YANG California family law has been incorporated in order to settle all such disputes, as California is a community property state. Community states declare that the property be equally divided among two spouses at the time of divorce/separation in case a prenuptial document has not been signed. Some salient features, along with general misconception in the mind of the masses, have been discussed in order to educate parents of today about their legal rights. Some of the features include:

Best interest of the children.

All legal documents pertaining to the California state laws in regards to child support and child custody point toward one thing: that the interest of the child’s health, well-being, and psychological needs is the number one priority in any legal dispute in all California courts. It is the parent’s obligation to give financial and moral support to their child for that child’s interest, even after divorce.

Moms always win legal battles.

The general perception that prevails in society is that the best care for a child can only be done by the female. However, recent court rulings have busted this myth, because the best interest of the child comes first and the gender of the parent comes later. For instance, breastfeeding moms in some cases have been asked to pump milk in order for the dads to feed their children if custody is

given to the fathers by the court. Therefore, the best interest of the child is kept first, which usually gives 50/50 custody to both parents, barring issues that may arise while hearing the case.

Only money wins custody.

It is also a common belief that the parent who earns the most money will automatically be granted custody of the child. This is certainly not the case, since many other factors are considered before the custody decision is made by the court. The law usually allows for 50/50 custody in normal cases. However, in a case where negligence or abuse is proved toward the child, the custody will be completely given to the non-abusive parent.

Child support is calculated on salary only.

Child support is not calculated only by salary. It is usually calculated by the DissoMaster, which is a computer program that calculates the amount of child support that has to be paid based on different inputs. These inputs include income, custody time, schooling charges, and certain other expenses. A recent trend indicates that parents are contesting child custody because it is cheaper than child support in a state like California. This is against the interest of the child and is usually considered a crime according to state laws if a parent doesn’t fulfill the rights of their child after separation.

FAMILY LAW

Attention Business Ow ners:

CONSIDER A PRENUPTIAL AGR EEMENT BY MOLLIE G. CAPLIS

I

f you are a business owner contemplating marriage and you are under the impression that your business is “off limits” in the event of a divorce, you may be subjecting yourself and your business to a huge risk.

le s i A e h t n w o D Walk o t n a l P u o Y If

Just because you own a business prior to marriage does not necessarily mean that you will be able to protect it against a claim by your spouse in a divorce. Where the value of a business increases during the marriage, the appreciated value may be included when a court decides issues relating to the equitable distribution of marital property. Normally, an asset owned by a spouse prior to the marriage or an asset acquired by inheritance or gift from a third party is considered non-marital property. (See Md. Code Ann., Fam. Law § 8–201[e][3][i]– [ii].) Non-marital property is not included in the marital estate that is subject to equitable distribution. In Maryland, however, the law allows a spouse to claim an interest in the appreciation of non-marital property under some circumstances. When one or both spouses actively work to enhance the value of non-marital property, such as a family-owned business, a marital increase to non-marital property may occur. In this scenario, the appreciated value of the business may be deemed marital property, which in turn would be included in the marital estate for the purpose of a monetary award. In Merriken v. Merriken, 87 Md. App. 522, 535 (1991), the Maryland Court of Special Appeals explained, “We define the value of the inherited property as the value that the property held at the time it was inherited, or such value as it has acquired by virtue of passive appreciation. Insofar as the value of inherited property is increased by the expenditure of marital funds for its upkeep and/or development, the amount of such increase or accretion is marital and therefore is to be included in the monetary award.” Not all increases in value to nonmarital property during a marriage are considered marital, however. When appreciation in value occurs without any effort from either spouse during the marriage, such

a “passive” increase is considered a non-marital increase to non-marital property. While the principle of active versus passive appreciation seems relatively straightforward, these types of cases are complicated by the difficult burden of proof. If a spouse claims that there has been marital appreciation to non-marital property, he or she must prove that the value of the business has increased since the date of marriage and that such increase was the product of active efforts by one or both spouses. Business valuation experts are often needed to establish the value of the business both at the time of marriage and at the time of divorce. Further, spouses frequently offer dueling versions of facts to explain why a business appreciated in value over the course of a marriage. To protect yourself from the risk that a court may find that the appreciation of your business constitutes marital property, consider entering into a prenuptial agreement. Among other things, a prenuptial agreement can be used to resolve the property rights of spouses in the event of divorce. Indeed, the Maryland legislature recognized the use of prenuptial agreements when it allowed for an asset to be excluded as marital property “by valid agreement.” (See Md. Code Ann., Fam. Law § 8–201[e][3][iii].) While the terms of a prenuptial agreement are subject to negotiation, it is conceivable that a spouse can waive all interest in the other spouse’s business interests, including any appreciation in value regardless of whether such increase resulted from active or passive efforts. So if you are a business owner planning to get married, consider a prenuptial agreement as a way to avoid the uncertainty, stress, and expense that litigation may inevitably cause to your business.

DEBORAH CHANG PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION

Panish Shea & Boyle LLP is committed to providing clients with the most effective trial teams comprised of experienced and diverse trial lawyers, including talented women such as Deborah Chang. Known for its deep bench of skilled trial attorneys, the firm’s many female lawyers play important roles on its trial teams. “Deborah has been a big contributor to the success of our firm at trial. Her use of demonstrative evidence at trial is the best I have ever seen in over 30 years of trying cases,” says founding partner Brian J. Panish. Chang is the recipient of the 2014 Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) Consumer Attorney of the Year Award, and has been a finalist for the same award in two other years. She was named by the Daily Journal as one of the “Top Women Lawyers in California 2016. She currently serves on the Executive Committee of the American Board of Trial Advocates’ Los Angeles Chapter (ABOTA), and serves on its Executive Committee. She is a National Board Member of ABOTA, a member of the Membership Committee, and is the Chair of the Sponsorship Committee. She is also on the Executive Committee and Board of the CAOC, and is a Minority Caucus delegate for the American Association for Justice. She is listed in the 23rd Edition of The Best Lawyers in America© for personal injury litigation – plaintiffs in Los Angeles and Super Lawyers for Southern California. “This is a great time for women trial lawyers to show what they can do in the courtroom,” says Chang.

ow does a law firm truly innovate how it provides professional legal services? For one regional New England law firm, innovation means recognizing superior talent and providing it directly to clients. Primmer Piper Eggleston & Cramer PC started out as a three-person boutique firm in Vermont cultivating a strong relationship-based approach to its practice. The legal team continues to grow―now with 46 attorneys and seven offices―because it maintains a personal touch when servicing clients. “We made a deliberate decision to provide legal services to our clients all across the northern New England region,” says Gary Karnedy, chair of the Board of Directors and managing shareholder. “Our span of offices allows us to serve clients who do business in more than one state. We are the only law firm in this region to have a significant presence in the commercial centers of Vermont (Burlington)

and New Hampshire (Manchester).” As the firm has grown from a small to regional firm, Primmer Piper Eggleston & Cramer PC has been particularly attentive to cultivating and recognizing its attorney talent on the rise. This provides clients the best fitting legal team to address legal problems. To that end, Primmer Piper Eggleston & Cramer PC recently elevated nine lawyers to the position of stockholder, seven of whom are women. “Of the 46 attorneys in our firm, 14 are women and 11 of those women are shareholders,” says Karnedy. “Thirty-three percent of our lawyers are women, compared to the national average of only 18%. We have more women shareholders than any other law firm in New Hampshire and Vermont. To be honest, gender has not really been a consideration as we have grown; raw talent drove our hiring decisions. These are all great attorneys, who happen to be women.”

eing a “counselor” does not limit attorneys to advocating for clients’ legal rights—the title also brings with it an obligation to listen, educate, and inform clients. This is the motivation for attorneys Carrie Capouellez and Regina Sharlow Johnson who, for more than a decade, have dedicated themselves to counseling clients as the managing attorneys of the East Coast offices of Lopez McHugh LLP, a nationally recognized plaintiffs’ personal injury law firm. Their involvement with national pharmaceutical and defective medical device cases have exposed Ms. Capouellez and Ms. Johnson to injured consumers—particularly women—throughout the United States. Through their experience litigating birth injury cases resulting from a woman’s use of SSRI antidepressants during pregnancy, birth control cases, and transvaginal mesh cases, they have counselled thousands of women from coast to coast. One striking observation is the wide disparity in women’s health care throughout the United States. The problems facing their clients are far greater than access to health care—many have poor awareness and understanding of their medical condition, treatment options, and their rights to advocate for the best treatment available to them. Sometimes counseling may include guiding a client to a website where she can learn more about her disease or helping her find a specialist in her area. Other times it may include a simple word of encouragement to seek treatment for a lingering symptom or simply ask uncomfortable questions of her medical providers. For Capouellez and Johnson, it is not just about encouraging their clients to seek treatment to make their legal cases better—it is about encouraging their clients to make themselves better. Ms. Capouellez also uses this approach in her volunteer work with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, where she advocates for abused and neglected children. Young women and girls in foster care face daily struggles for survival and have a need to learn necessary life skills. It is key to be able to counsel this at-risk group about their own medical needs, well-being, and the resources available to them, as well as instilling the confidence to pursue these things. www.bestlawyers.com | 14 3
