Lieff Cabraser attorney Sarah R. London will be featured as a distinguished panelist in a San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association (SFTLA) Women’s Caucus event titled “Why Aren’t More Female Lawyers Making it to Trial?” on January 7, 2016.
Ms. London will join Deborah Chang (Panish Shea & Boyle LLP), Sonia Chopra (NJP Litigation Consulting), Anne Marie Murphy (Cotchette Pitre & McCarthy LLP), Katherine Higgins (The Veen Firm), and Jessica Grant (Venable LLP) in a discussion on the role of female lawyers in the legal industry, and how they got to trial.
A partner in our San Francisco office, Ms. London is a determined, skilled, and experienced advocate for the injured, employees, and consumers. In February 2015, she served as lead trial counsel in a lawsuit in the Florida smokers litigation, obtaining a $3 million judgment for the plaintiff. The previous year, she served as second chair in a trial in the same litigation that resulted in a $41.1 million jury verdict. The trial successes of Ms. London and other Lieff Cabraser trial lawyers contributed substantially to convincing the tobacco industry defendants to agree, for the first time ever, to a mass settlement of individual smoker lawsuits.
