The Minnesota Lawyer “2023 Top Women in Law” list celebrates the outstanding achievements of women in Minnesota’s legal community, honoring exceptional educators, trailblazers, role models, and public service lawyers as well as those lawyers who have dedicated their careers to nonprofit work, private practice, and in-house counsel. These women are leaders in their practice areas and have been instrumental to their companies’ success. They will all be featured in a special supplement on October 30.
