The Indianapolis Chapter of the Women's White Collar Defense Association was founded in November, 2015 by Kathleen ("Katie") Matsoukas, Vice-Chair of Barnes & Thornburg LLP's White Collar & Investigations practice group. Katie started the Indianapolis chapter after relocating from Chicago (where she was a member of the Chicago chapter) to her hometown of Indianapolis, where she saw an opportunity to connect women practicing in the white collar areas both with each other, and with a national referral network.

Its growing membership boasts some of the most distinguished and experienced criminal defense practitioners in the city, and includes women representing individual and corporate clients in a variety of areas, including anti-corruption/FCPA, antitrust, healthcare, insider trading, securities, and cybercrime. The chapter meets quarterly.


The Indianapolis 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.   

Consultant Member: Women professionals who work at consulting firms (or non-attorney professionals who work at law firms), specialize in the White Collar Defense and Investigations field, and who otherwise qualify under the WWCDA membership criteria and offer support services and referral opportunities to attorneys in the practice. 

Some WWCDA and chapter events may be limited to women attorney private practitioner (law firm attorney) members only.  

All Members must have their primary work address in the same location as our chapter.
