Manatt CEO and Managing Partner Donna Wilson and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer and Intellectual Property Protection and Enforcement practice Leader Michelle Cooke were recognized on Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2021 Women of Influence – Attorneys list. This list recognizes individuals for their exceptional legal skill and achievement across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership as evidenced by the highest professional and ethical standards, and contributions to the Los Angeles community at large.
Wilson was recognized for her efforts to build the professional services firm of the future—one built on a foundation of inclusivity—by expanding Manatt’s reach into new geographies as well as the restructuring of the firm to focus on industry groups, rather than traditional practice areas. This is Wilson's fifth consecutive year being included on this list.
In Cooke’s profile, she was noted for having an unparalleled understanding of the full gamut of intellectual property issues and also from her truly global approach to preplanning, management and vigilance as well as her masterful guidance through delicate brand rehabilitation issues. This is the fourth time Los Angeles Business Journal has recognized Cooke on this list.
