Women’s Forum Hosts Client Networking Reception in Shanghai
On Sept. 26, Ropes & Gray’s Women’s Forum held a client networking reception in Shanghai at the Hermes Maison. Government enforcement partner Kim Nemirow (Hong Kong), chief China life sciences advisor Katherine Wang (Shanghai) and government enforcement counsel Mimi Yang (Shanghai) brought together a group of the foremost female in-house counsel and top executives from the life sciences industry. The guests spent a lovely evening on an interpretive tour of the Hermes Horse exhibition located within the maison. This was the first client-facing Women’s Forum event in Shanghai, and the forum is looking forward to hosting more events in the coming year.
