Stephanie Cohen, a partner in McCarter’s Newark office and member of the Women’s Initiative Steering Committee cited the need for networking in today’s tough economic climate that led to the move.

“Business development is more important than ever,” Cohen said. “Partnering with 85 Broads will allow our women attorneys to build key relationships, which, in turn, will strengthen their ability to become firm leaders as well as enhance their own personal social and community development skills.”
