Vinfen Vice President and General Counsel Lurleen Gannon was honored as one of the 2018 Top Women of Law at an event hosted by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly on October 18. The annual event celebrates the wonderful achievements made by exceptional women lawyers. Each year, a panel comprised by members of the legal community and representatives of Lawyers Weekly select and recognize lawyers who make significant contributions to the legal profession, as well as serve as role models for young women entering law.
