Litigation & enforcement partner Joan McPhee has been named the inaugural recipient of The Laurie A. Miller Leadership Award for the Advancement of Women in White Collar Defense by the Women in White Collar Defense Association (WWCDA).

Since 1999, WWCDA has grown to more than 1,700 members in 39 chapters throughout North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific.
