Maslon Partner Susan Markey Appointed to Meritas Women's Leadership Congress
June 1, 2021
Maslon Partner Susan Markey has been appointed to serve in the Women's Leadership Congress of Meritas, a global network of independent law firms. Established this year, the Women's Leadership Congress celebrates the path to leadership for women lawyers in the network and offers visibility, knowledge sharing, mentorship, and skills building designed to support the professional careers of women at member firms. Interactions among members help firms recruit and retain top talent, develop business, and elevate women leaders.
Susan represents clients in general corporate, taxation, and nonprofit matters. She draws from a diverse background in government, accounting, and law to serve as a holistic business advisor, and strongly believes that tax and corporate advice should be both easy to understand and practical.
Last year, Susan provided pro bono counsel to volunteers from across the country who created Project N95—a nonprofit working to source crucial supplies for health care providers confronting the COVID-19 crisis. She also serves as a review board member in the Minnesota Cup, a University of Minnesota Carlson School of Business competition supporting emerging entrepreneurs. In addition, she has been recognized by the Minnesota State Bar Association each year since 2016 as a North Star Lawyer, a recognition given to those who provide 50 hours or more of pro bono legal services in a calendar year.
Maslon is one of the eight original members of Meritas, established in 1990 by a former Maslon Partner.
