Bradley is pleased to announce that partner Anne Marie Seibel has accepted the gavel as the 2023-2024 chair of the American Bar Association (ABA) Litigation Section.
“It is a true honor to serve as chair of one of the largest sections of the ABA,” said Ms. Seibel. “The ABA’s Litigation Section provides the knowledge, skills, and connections for our members to be more effective and successful litigators, counselors, and leaders reflecting the highest ideals of the profession. The Section also plays an important role in supporting and promoting the rule of law, ethical rules and fair procedures, diversity, equity, and inclusion in the profession, and access to justice. I welcome litigators of all practice areas to benefit from our written, virtual, and in-person content. I’m particularly excited to host a Women’s Joint CLE Conference in San Diego in November 2023, our Section’s Annual Conference in D.C. in May 2024, and a host of meetings for specific practice areas, including our popular Insurance Coverage Litigation meeting in Tucson in March 2024.”
“We are incredibly proud of Anne Marie’s national leadership role in the ABA’s Litigation Section, where she has long demonstrated her commitment to championing all facets of trial law,” said Bradley Chairman of the Board and Managing Partner Jonathan M. Skeeters. “Anne Marie will undoubtedly serve the membership with the same sense of respect, skill and talent that she affords her clients, and we congratulate her on this remarkable achievement.”
