SMW Honored as Women-Owned Business

SMW has been named by the San Francisco Business Times to its “Bay Area’s Largest 100 Women-Owned Businesses” for 2010, one of only three law firms to make the rankings.  The firm’s seven woman owners – Fran Layton, managing partner Rachel Hooper, Ellen Garber, Tamara Galanter, Ellison Folk, Osa Wolff, and Catherine Engberg – comprise a majority of SMW’s partners and, collectively, hold a majority ownership stake in the firm.  The firm was honored by the Business Times at a September 24 awards program in San Francisco.
