Spencer Fane is pleased to announce that attorney Linda Knight has joined the leadership committee for the firm affinity group, Women ADVOCATE.
ADVOCATE stands for “Advance. Develop. Visualize. Own. Champion. Advise. Thrive. Engage.” The group dedicates itself to the recruitment, retention, and advancement of female attorneys by implementing internal and external initiatives that cultivate both individual talent development and firmwide business development.
“This group has generated thoughtful programming for the firm and provided forums to support mentorship, and for that, I am honored to be considered for this committee,” Linda said. “For my part, I would like to spotlight the need for sponsorship and implement a strategic plan that encourages the firm – not just other women – to engage in such an approach to inclusiveness.”
At Spencer Fane, Linda helps insurers and their insureds successfully resolve complicated first- and third-party litigation to minimize potential exposure when stakes are high. She has particular experience defending insureds in catastrophic loss cases and insurers in coverage and bad faith litigation. This has allowed her to build a national practice and serve clients as trial counsel in federal and state courts throughout the country, with an exemplary record of strong results for her clients in highly contentious matters.
