Seyfarth’s Alison K. Eggers, partner in the firm’s Litigation department in Boston, was honored as one of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly’s Top Women in Law for 2020.
Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly’s Top Women of Law celebrates the outstanding achievements of exceptional women lawyers who are pioneers, educators, trailblazers, and role models. The list includes public-service lawyers who work in the trenches, attorneys who have dedicated their careers to non-profit work, private practice attorneys who have become leaders in their practice areas, and in-house counsel who have been instrumental in their companies’ success.
Eggers began her career as a securities litigator, an experience that has proven invaluable in representing clients in other highly regulated industries. In addition to broker-dealers, investment advisers, and other securities clients, she has represented wholesalers, distributors, retailers, franchisors, franchisees, and trade associations, which gives her unique insight into the competing interests that drive business today. Eggers’ deep knowledge of her clients' businesses and relationships with business line personnel have given her valuable institutional knowledge of their business operations, litigation histories, and regulatory concerns. That connection with her clients has helped her become a go-to problem-spotter, not just a problem-solver, for her clients.
