Davis is listed in the “Top Women of Law “ in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. Siebert, chair of Shook’s Biometric Privacy Practice and a leading lawyer on cases involving the Illinois Biometric Privacy Act (BIPA), will provide input on news relevant to the state of Illinois.

Attorneys appointed to the Law360 editorial boards must go through a stringent nomination and vetting process. They serve a one-year term and must apply and be chosen yearly to continue to serve on the boards. Selected attorneys communicate with editors and reporters off the record, offering insight into legal and business trends and helping to direct and shape news coverage.
