Miami litigators Corali Lopez-Castro and Melanie Damian are used to being the only women taking the lead role in a substantial state or federal receivership case. So when they got the opportunity to work together on one, it was something special.

Usually, we don’t even have to say who we are because we’re the only women on a conference call,” Lopez-Castro said. “I’m still surprised that I’m still one of the few, or the only woman, in the courtroom acting as lead counsel. I’m still the only woman on conference calls on what I would call significant cases. And I could probably think of 10 examples in the last month.”
