The Connecticut Chapter of the Women’s White Collar Defense Association launched in 2016 and is comprised of experienced litigators who regularly represent corporations and individuals in criminal, civil, administrative and appellate proceedings arising out of federal and state investigations, and who routinely advise clients on effective compliance strategies to avoid or remediate a government investigation.

The members of the Connecticut Chapter include former government officials from, among other agencies, the Department of Justice and the US Attorneys’ offices for the Southern District of New York, the Eastern District of New York, and the District of Connecticut, with specialties such as anti-corruption, securities, international trade, government contracting, healthcare, environmental, and tax, among others.

The Connecticut group plans to hold quarterly meetings and social events that create opportunities to build and strengthen our professional networks, to leverage our contacts and referral sources, and to provide insight into cutting edge topics in the white collar field.


The Connecticut Chapter accepts Law Firm Attorney Members and Consultant Members as defined:  

Law Firm Attorney Member: Women attorney private practitioners primarily practicing in the area of White Collar Defense and Investigations, defined as those who specialize in the representation of corporations, other organizations and individuals facing government enforcement actions (criminal, civil, regulatory, and administrative), and in internal investigations, compliance and ethics matters.
