Partner Lynne Hermle has been named for the third consecutive year to The Recorder’s Women Leaders in Tech Law, which recognized her for major wins last year in employment cases for tech industry giants Microsoft and Twitter. Lynne will be honored at a Nov. 6 dinner as part of the publication’s California Leaders in Tech Law and Innovation awards.
In this Q&A, Lynne shared her advice for women starting out in tech law, advising them: “I work with a huge number of tech companies, VCs and executives, and virtually all of them embrace diversity and welcome what women bring to the table – including women with strong voices. And when you get there, put your money where your mouth is – look for qualified women candidates.”
Lynne also sounded a note of optimism for an improving outlook for women in tech law. “I see progress in initiatives like the Mansfield rule and other collaborations on inclusion among law firms and corporate legal departments, and I think they will get us there,” Lynne said.
The Recorder recognition is the latest for Lynne, who last month was named to the Daily Journal’s top 100 lawyers in California list.
