Three Mintz attorneys will be participating in the National LGBT Bar Association’s annual Lavender Law conference and career fair. Created in 1988, the annual event for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and allies within the legal professionals looks back at the shared history of achievement and looks forward to the advancements being made at the cutting edge of the legal profession. The conference is being held August 2-4, 2017 in San Francisco.
Member Douglas Hauer, Associate Lyzzette Bullock and Special Counsel John Koss will be among the featured panelists.
Mr. Hauer’s panel, “Immigration Laws and Crossing Borders: What Multinational Same-Sex Couples Need to Know about Migrating the Globe,” will discuss legal developments relating to the accessibility of immigration benefits for same-sex couples globally, with a particular focus on legal developments and related case law in the United States.
Ms. Bullock will be featured in the discussion on “Tips for Succeeding as a Lesbian Attorney at a Big Law Firm or Company.” The speakers will discuss barriers to entry and obstacles facing them in their practices, the importance of finding mentors and like-minded colleagues, and strategies for success even in the most challenging practice groups and corporate environments.
Mr. Koss will speak on the panel, “What's Wrong with Being Confident (in the security of your organization's PII)?” The focus will be on being confident that your company, law firm and vendor partners are taking adequate steps to protect the personally-identifiable information (“PII”) that your organization may encounter in the course of everyday business.
