San Francisco partner Cheryl Orr has been invited to speak at the 2019 First Chair Awards Conference & Gala in Chicago on August 28.
The annual awards program, now in its eighth year, honors in‐house counsel from some of the country’s most recognized companies who have made significant contributions to the legal community. The full-day event features a General Counsel roundtable followed by a choice of Breakout Sessions led by law firm practitioners and members of the in-house community.
Cheryl will join a panel titled “Hot Topics in Employment Law” with Allison Eckstrom of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, Leslie Wallis of Ogletree Deakins, and Jeffrey Widman of Fox Rothschild. Kim Metrick of Walgreen Co. will serve as moderator.
Drinker Biddle is a Platinum Sponsor of the event, and the exclusive sponsor of the gala’s highest honor, the “Drinker Biddle General Counsel Award.”
