Cathy Birkeland, the Office Managing Partner of Latham & Watkins in Chicago, has been featured in the inaugural Women in Law report by the Chicago Law Bulletin, which profiled “50 exceptional women leaders in the law… who have achieved success while mentoring and promoting other women and have been shining examples of leadership.”
Her published profile highlighted both Birkeland’s leadership roles in Latham’s Chicago office and her market-leading practice as a member of the firm’s Capital Markets Practice. It also cited her dedication to mentoring young lawyers and deep commitment to diversity, as well as her active involvement in the Chicago community — including her current leadership of Latham’s Chicago Taskforce for the Commitment to Racial Justice and Economy, which is dedicated to fighting racial injustice and promoting equality through pro bono efforts, programming, and financial support for Chicago-based organisations.
