Washington D.C. Firm Wins Esteemed International Award for Women in Law

Posted By October 28, 2015

Disan LLP Named 2015 Outstanding Firm for Furthering Women’s Advancement by Chambers and Partners

WASHINGTON, DC.–October 9, 2015.– Among a short list of nominees including several traditional major firms, Washington D.C.’s Disan LLP was awarded the Chambers and Partners award for Outstanding Firm for Furthering Women’s Advancement in the International Firms category. Disan’s Founding Partner Margarita Sanchez accepted the honor on the firm’s behalf at the Latin American awards ceremony in São Paulo, Brazil on Thursday, October 1, 2015.

“I could not be prouder of my team and for what Disan stands for on an international scale. After only a little more than a year in operation, it is an honor to be shortlisted among large, global firms for our commitment to the advancement of female attorneys,” remarked Sanchez, who was joined at the ceremony by Disan international counsel Geraldine Fuenmayor.

Since its founding in 2014—and now a team of four female attorneys, including Sanchez—Disan has actively supported flexible schedules and hours expectations in efforts to create a professional environment where women can be successful. “This award not only brings prestige to our firm, but also to the power of women in the legal workplace. Being recognized by Chambers and Partners elevates the gender conversation and proves the significance of women in law,” added Sanchez.

In describing the organization’s dedication to equality and recognition of excellence, the Chambers and Partners website notes: “We firmly believe that, by raising awareness of gender diversity and empowering the people committed to bringing about change, together we can start a new chapter in Latin America with equal opportunities for everyone.”

Disan has a flagship office in Washington D.C. and will soon launch a satellite location in Colombia. The firm also plans to expand internally—growing its team to accommodate its growing global clientele.
