In January, Paoli, Pa.-based insurance litigation boutique Connor Weber & Oberlies named Margaret E. Wenke the firm’s first female managing shareholder in its 27-year history.

As the successor to Joseph P. Connor III, Wenke, who was also the firm’s first female shareholder, became one of only a handful of women law firm leaders statewide and is now responsible for overseeing 14 attorneys in three offices between Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
