Women Deal Lawyers Forum

October 11, 2017
Dallas, Texas

On October 11, Rita O’Neill participated in the first Women Deal Lawyers Forum, a half-day program at the Dallas Bar Association addressing the challenges and opportunities women in M&A and corporate law face. The forum, which took place the day before The University of Texas School of Law’s 13th Annual Mergers and Acquisitions Institute, was organized by the Women in M&A Task Force of the American Bar Association’s Mergers and Acquisitions Committee, of which Rita is vice chair. Rita gave a welcome address at the program and moderated a panel on how women can achieve executive presence in the boardroom. More than 100 in-house lawyers, firm lawyers and law students attended the program.
