Linda Addison– Immediate Past Managing Partner of Norton Rose & Fulbright; Director of the Board of KPMG
Mar 30th, 2020
Linda Addison has been serving as an example for other women from the start of her career by becoming the first women managing editor of the Texas Law Review. She moved on to become a seasoned trial attorney who spent four years as the US Managing Partner of Norton Rose Fulbright, LLP. Despite a lack of female trial attorneys, her persistence and commitment to her passions allowed her to find a position and develop her skills. While at the firm, she helped promote women’s rights by addressing bigotry on an individual level. Her efforts also included a focus on diversity strategy, and she was able to change her firm’s approach to diversity leadership through her strategic vision. Linda continued to breakdown glass ceilings outside the office by helping form the Center for Women in Law.
