On Jan. 1st, Womble Carlyle Chair and CEO Betty Temple became part of a small, but growing, club—women leading AmLaw 200 law firms.

Bloomberg BNA takes a look at women attorneys leading some of the country’s largest law firms, noting Temple’s appointment as a significant recent milestone. The article also examines how these law firm leaders have formed an informal club to address industry-wide challenges.
