Lisa Damon is a rare lawyer – she is an experienced practicing attorney who is dedicated to her clients and is energized by, and totally “gets”, the business of law and the need for new thinking and innovation. The more traditional part of her role is as chair of her firm’s Labor & Employment Department and as a member of the firm’s executive committee. What makes her so impressive is that she has championed the firm’s Lean Six Sigma-based SeyfarthLean client service model, while continuing to spur innovation at the firm, and to challenge and celebrate her colleagues who think out-of-the-box. In 2012, the Financial Times honored Lisa among a group of the 10 most innovative individuals in the legal industry and named her one of FT’s “Top 10 Agents for Change.” Despite the competitive advantage that LeanSigma and Seyfarth’s other practice management initiatives give the firm, Lisa has generously shared her insights and experiences with any and all others who seek guidance and tips. Colleagues at COLPM have already gained much from Lisa’s contributions and stand to gain even more as a newly inducted Fellow.
