The Minnesota Chapter of the Women’s White Collar Defense Association launched in January 2019 to an enthusiastic membership. The Minnesota Chapter welcomes women lawyers whose primary practice area is white collar criminal and government enforcement defense, and comprises dynamic female litigators with diverse experiences and expertise.

Our simple mission is to provide regular opportunities for Minnesota women in the white collar defense community to build and broaden their network of professional contacts and referral sources. These opportunities in turn promote diversity in the practice of criminal defense, provide networking and business development opportunities, offer educational programming, and facilitate collaboration and communication.

The Minnesota Chapter looks forward to working closely with the WWCDA and all of its chapters throughout the world to help forge relationships between our practices and theirs.


The Minnesota Chapter accepts Law Firm Attorney Members and Consultant Affiliate 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 Affiliate: Women professionals who work at consulting firms (or non-attorney professionals who work at law firms) and 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.  The affiliate status will permit you to participate in certain activities of the chapter and WWCDA. 

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

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