What: Lerners LLP Extraordinary Women’s Extravaganza
Where: Main Lobby, 130 Adelaide St. West

When: April 2, 2014

This year’s spring break-themed event was the 9th Extraordinary Women’s Extravaganza hosted annually by Lerners. Given the record attendance of over 150 guests, it seemed everyone was happy to enjoy a break from the weather and the office for a fabulous evening among colleagues, peers and mentors. Fish tacos, sliders, wine, cocktails and a delicious selection of hors d’oeuvres provided the comfort food and drink that accompanies any good getaway.

“The Lerners Extraordinary Women’s Event brings together hundreds of professional women who enjoy, inspire and support each other,” said Jennifer Hunter, partner at Lerners. “Our goal every year is to create an opportunity to reconnect with women they never have time to see, and also to meet the women that will be an important part of their lives and careers in the future. Every year we get thank-you cards from our guests saying that they appreciate the effort we take to provide this opportunity to the women that have become important to us in our careers. It’s great to be at the centre of something that’s had such a positive impact on the women who are the current and future leaders of law and business in and around Toronto.”

Interestingly, over half of the lawyers in Lerners’ Toronto office are women. Intended to better connect new and established women in the field of law, this now signature annual networking opportunity has become extremely popular.

One of Canada’s largest litigation groups, Lerners LLP has offices in Toronto and London, Ontario, and is committed to continuing to support women in attaining partnership and leadership roles.
