Janel Dressen has recently been selected to serve as the firm’s first female CEO and reflect the vision for the future.
For decades Dressen has worked closely with firm founders Joe Anthony and Rich Ostlund, and partner Vincent Louwagie to create, encourage, and nurture a firm culture of hard work, top notch client service and exceptional results. She is now ready to lead the firm and continue what they have so successfully started.
“Janel has demonstrated the skills necessary to excel in a highly competitive litigation environment,” says founding partner, Joe Anthony, of the selection. “She also possesses leadership talent that will make her a compelling force in business litigation for years to come.”
Dressen believes her role as CEO is critical to supporting the success of women in professional capacities. “Representation is important,” Dressen notes. “When our litigation team more closely reflects the diversity that our clients seek in their own team and trusted advisors, our community benefits, our firm benefits, and importantly, our clients benefit.”
