SAN FRANCISCO — The Recorder is delighted to announce the 2017 Women Leaders in Tech Law. This marks the seventh year for the annual program, which recognizes recent outstanding work by California-based lawyers whose practices focus on technology companies and issues. As in the prior six go-rounds, competition was intense. We received more than 100 nominations from a variety of sources: clients, firms, universities and colleagues.

Editors selected 65 winners. These lawyers handled deals that are reshaping the industry, cases that are setting new precedent, and navigated what can best be called a murky regulatory environment. Congratulations to all the winners.

Honorees will be featured on The Recorder website this fall and toasted at a reception in San Francisco on Oct. 5.
