Chapters

Vancouver

The Vancouver Chapter of the Women's White Collar Defense Association, founded in 2018, began as a collective of lawyers experienced in the area of white collar defense and regulatory enforcement interested in providing a forum for discussion, mentorship and referrals among women with similar expertise. Members practice throughout Canada but primarily in British Columbia. The founding members are primarily – but not exclusively – litigators with expertise in complex criminal, licensing and regulatory matters with national and international components. All are well-versed in compliance and enforcement considerations during internal investigations and when defending individuals or entities in filed actions. Women who have or are developing practices in these areas are encouraged to join, even if white collar defense only forms a component of their practice.

CHAPTER MEMBERSHIP CRITERIA

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