Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. Shareholder Maria Kreiter named 2015 'Woman of the Year' by the Association for Women LawyersJune 15, 2015
MILWAUKEE (June 15, 2015) – Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. is proud to announce that Shareholder Maria Kreiter was named “Woman of the Year” by the Association for Women Lawyers (AWL). She was chosen out of 30 honorees as part of the Wisconsin Law Journal’s “Women in the Law” awards for this spectacular honor.
Consideration for the “Woman of the Year” award was based on the following criteria:
- Women attorneys who have achieved excellence in their respective fields and have influenced other women to pursue legal careers;
- Candidates who have opened doors for women lawyers in a variety of job settings that historically were closed to women;
- Those who have advanced opportunities for women within a practice area or segment of the profession; and
- Those who have otherwise served their profession or community in a manner that has benefited the legal profession.
The AWL judges felt that Kreiter fit all those criteria, as well as many more and praised her for truly having it all. Kreiter was honored at a celebratory event at the Pfister Hotel on June 11.
Kreiter is a shareholder in Godfrey & Kahn's Litigation Practice Group. She focuses her practice on complex business litigation, primarily in the areas of banking and financial services, business torts, contracts, corporate governance, consumer claims, and white collar defense and internal investigations.
