Bradley is pleased to announce that Anne Marie Seibel, a partner in the firm’s Birmingham office, is among the recipients of Corporate Counsel and InsideCounsel magazines’ 2019 Women, Influence & Power in Law (WIPL) Awards.
Formerly known as the National Women in Law Awards, the WIPL awards honor general counsel, in-house leaders and law firm partners who have demonstrated a commitment to advancing the empowerment of women in law. The honorees were recognized at an awards dinner Oct. 16 as part of the Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference in Washington, D.C. Profiles of the honorees will appear in the December issue of Corporate Counsel.
“We are very proud of Anne Marie’s ongoing work and commitment as a leader and champion of women in the law,” said Bradley’s Director of Inclusion and Diversity George Medlock. “Anne Marie is very deserving of the WIPL Award for her contributions toward the empowerment of women in our profession.”
Ms. Seibel is an award recipient in the Women’s Legal Awards Category among WIPL law firm honorees. According to Corporate Counsel and InsideCounsel Editor-in-Chief Heather Nevitt, the award honorees are “business strategists, complex problem-solvers, and of course, great lawyers.
