Letter from the Chairman

John SorokoWhat's a New Year without a little sparkle? Alison LazerwitzAs you can see from our cover story in this edition of Alumni Spotlight, our alumni newsletter, we are going a little bit Hollywood. That is courtesy of Alison Lazerwitz, a former Duane Morris associate who is now Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Daniel Swarovski Corporation AG. Thank you, Alison, for sharing your story with us, as well as a few photographs that capture some of the essence of the famous Swarovski brand.

Thank you as well to all who attended our recent alumni event in Philadelphia, the first in a series of gatherings for Duane Morris Alumni. That particular event brought together former Duane Morris lawyers who now work in corporate legal departments, in government and in academia and it was a great way to reconnect. We are planning additional events that, together with Spotlight, help us connect, and stay connected, with Duane Morris alumni.

We are pleased to bring you this fourth edition of Spotlight. As always, we hope that you will share your own stories and news in future editions. Please contact me personally at or contact

With kindest regards,
