Teri Drew Featured in Bloomberg BNA Article on Courtroom Experiences of Women Litigators

August 21, 2017

Hinshaw partner Teri Drew was recently featured in the Bloomberg BNA article, "Mistaken for the Court Reporter: Litigating as a Woman." The article discusses the courtroom experiences of women litigators, with Drew's personal anecdote serving as the headline of the story. Drew relates how she was mistaken as a court reporter at a recent deposition proceeding. Drew said she considered herself lucky to have been afforded many opportunities to argue motions and take the lead on cases at Hinshaw, but acknowledged that she's the only woman lawyer in 75-80 percent of the cases she works. "I do sometimes feel sorry for some of the women attorneys in the larger firms," said Drew. "You know they know the case better, but when we’re having the motion for summary judgment in a products liability case, they’re sitting there and they’re passing the notes."
