Girl Scouts of the USA has created its first-ever general counsel position and hired a BigLaw partner to fill the job.
Jennifer Rochon, a litigation partner at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel, begins her new job on Oct. 1, Corporate Counsel reports. Rochon, a third-generation Girl Scout, tells the publication the new job allows her to combine her litigator skills and her commitment to the Girl Scout goals of developing leadership ability in girls and women.
“There’s really a push to think about what kinds of things the organization can do that will be empowering and relevant to girls today,” she said.
