Two Special Business Teams, Women Lawyers of Interlaw, the Americas and WLI, European Rainmakers include senior women attorneys who hold leadership positions in their firms and professional lives and want to support one another in their professional growth and in expanding their firm’s and their own business portfolios. The two groups are welcome to—and do—participate in one another’s communiqué, meetings and business development projects. The purpose of these groups is to create an environment of familiarity, mentoring, and confidence for business referral and to raise the visibility of Interlaw to purchasers of legal services who have professed a particular commitment to retaining the professional services of women and minorities. This group is formed to strategically identify new business opportunities, and promote women within the network and the profession of law. Additionally, the group mentors associates in business development concepts and practices. Referrals among WLI members are robust, benefiting all firms within the network and the clients they counsel. The two chapters, E/ME/A and The Americas meet together and separately and share a common directory, which is available through the Interlaw website to clients who are interested in retaining senior women lawyers worldwide. WLI members participate fully in all Special Business Teams, and both men and women lawyers attend the WLI meetings and benefit from the resources of the group.
