Gibbs Law Group attorneys Karen Barth Menzies and Amy Zeman travelled to Aspen, Colorado for the fourth annual Women En Mass Conference, a gathering of women mass tort attorneys from across the country. This year’s conference covers a wide range of topics pertinent to female attorneys, including:
- negotiation strategies,
- equal pay litigation,
- e-discovery and the new federal rules,
- strategies for multi-district litigation, and
- updates on various ongoing mass torts throughout the country.

Women En Mass “brings together the best and brightest female mass tort attorneys to discuss issues that affect women – from the boardroom to the courtroom.” The founders, organizers, and law firm sponsors of WEM encourage more women to pursue leadership positions in large-scale and complex cases, particularly mass tort cases.
