The Pittsburgh Chapter of the Women's White Collar Defense Association, founded in 2018, is comprised of talented female white collar attorneys focused on state and federal criminal, civil, administrative and appellate proceedings. With both corporate and individual clients, the female attorneys in the group have experience handling a broad range of legal matters including matters related to fraud, FCA/qui tam, FCPA, tax violations, SEC securities violations, higher education, municipalities, public corruption, privacy and security, antitrust, environmental issues, healthcare, complex commercial litigation, internal investigations, and compliance and ethics. The female attorneys in the group also have significant trial experience and experience representing individuals in grand jury proceedings.

The group is dedicated to building a strong network of white collar female defense attorneys, both in Pittsburgh and surrounding locations, to increase diversity in this area of the law.
