2022 Year in Review

Throughout 2022, we celebrated our wins and conquered our challenges in partnership with our clients, our colleagues, and in our communities.


We have faced unforeseen challenges over the past several years, but Seyfarth has grown bigger and stronger thanks to exceptional dedication and leadership across our practices, offices, and administrative staff worldwide, along with the valued confidence of our clients.

Lorie Almon Elected Next Chair & Managing Partner

Seyfarth achieved a significant milestone in 2022 as Lorie Almon became the first woman elected as chair and managing partner in the firm’s 77-year history. Almon has been co-managing partner of Seyfarth’s New York office since 2005, and also serves as a member of Seyfarth’s Executive and Compensation Committees along with the Labor & Employment Leadership Team.

She will initially serve as chair-elect alongside current chair and managing partner, Pete Miller, who will be stepping down in the second half of 2023. Said Miller: “Lorie is an exceptional leader and mentor and exemplifies the very best of Seyfarth. Her experience in handling complex matters for some of the world’s leading companies makes her ideally suited to guide the firm.”

Almon has received numerous accolades for her work as a top complex employment litigator and counselor, including Chambers USA, The Legal 500, The American Lawyer, and Best Lawyers in America. Crain’s New York Business named her as one of its "2020 Notable Women in Law."

We look forward to Seyfarth’s exciting future under Almon’s leadership.
