The PRBA hosted it’s inaugural Corporate Law Committee Spring Mixer at the offices of DLA Piper LLP (US) in New York City.
The Spring Mixer was the first of several planned events from the committee where members will be networking, sharing on topics of general interest, and helping to form a voice within the Puerto Rican Bar Association and the community as a whole.
The event featured guest speaker, the Honorable Sila Calderón who is the first female governor of Puerto Rico. The former governor spoke about the Centro Para Puerto Rico and the work it’s doing to transform the lives of women and families in Puerto Rico through its entrepreneurial training program. Guests at the Corporate Law Committee event, including notable Puerto Rican lawyers from large law firms and in-house law departments, noted how inspirational the program was and how there is a great need for this type of forum.
