"For the past few years, Sarah has co-chaired the Real Estate practice group. In addition, she is very engaged in firm activities and committed to supporting the growth of the firm. Most notably, Sarah stands out for her mentorship of young lawyers, and she was even involved in our 2023 Pre-Law Program, which creates a pipeline of diverse talent for the firm. She is an excellent example of firm leadership and an all-around great firm citizen. We are happy that she will take part in NAWL's Leadership Program.," said Tamika Walters, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer at Burr & Forman.
"Emily is a critical member of the firm's Creditors' Rights and Bankruptcy (CRAB) practice group. Not only is she a valuable resource for clients because of her knowledge, skills, and abilities as a lawyer, but her contributions within the firm as a leader, mentor, and valued colleague make her a 'go-to' person within our group and the entire firm on a variety of complicated matters. It's no surprise to anyone who has worked with Emily that she has been accepted into this program. Our whole firm is proud of everything Emily has accomplished already, and this only adds to her already-pedigreed resume.," said Derek Meek, Partner and Chair of Burr & Forman's Creditor's Rights & Bankruptcy practice group.
