Margaret Christie To Speak At June 22, 2017 Women In Law Event

June 1, 2017

The practice of law, as a whole, is changing – and so are the roles of women within the legal sector. And while it’s no secret that the legal industry is traditionally known for its resistance to change, women are excelling at adapting to these shifts. By taking on far greater leadership roles and driving change within law firms and corporate legal departments, women are shaking up the status quo in today's competitive marketplace.

Golan Christie Taglia name partner, Margaret Christie, will join a panel of highly successful law firm and in-house counsel leaders who will share their experiences and insights on taking charge and succeeding in the legal industry. Ms. Christie has been a partner with Golan Christie Taglia since 1995. Prior to that, she spent a number of years working in large law firms with national practices – Mayer Brown (Associate) and DLA Piper (Partner) – before setting up her own firm in 1987. Ms. Christie’s primary areas of practice are commercial real estate and corporate law where she represents entrepreneurial, family-owned and middle-market businesses. In addition to practicing law, she has been active in real estate development and management during her career. She was listed in the Top 10 Women Transactional Lawyers in Illinois and the Top 100 Women Lawyers in Illinois in the March 2015 edition of Leading Lawyers Magazine. Ms. Christie serves on the Advisory Board of the John Marshall Real Estate Center and is currently the Chair of the Executive Board of Cures Within Reach.
