Two local attorneys named Top Women in Finance

Call it synergy.

Finance and Commerce, another Dolan Media newspaper published in this office, today announced its 7th annual Top Women in Finance awards.

And two of the honorees are attorneys: Trudy J. Halla and Robyn Hansen.

Trudy J. Halla has practiced public finance law at Briggs and Morgan for 30 years. As a shareholder, she has been a key contributor in building the firm’s practice group and has been involved with financing some of Minnesota’s highest-profile developments. And as a former president of Minnesota Women Lawyers and the Hennepin County Bar Association, Trudy actively promotes diversity and is a role model for many female attorneys.

Robyn Hansen has also logged three decades in the profession, and is now a shareholder at Leonard, Street and Deinard. Robyn has been a leader in helping clients finance their economic and municipal development projects. She is considered an ambassador for women’s initiatives at the firm, and is active in a variety of civic boards and committees such as the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, Minnesota State Fair Foundation and the The St. Paul Foundation.

Congratulations to Trudy, Robyn and all of the other 2007 Top Women in Finance honorees. We will be publishing profiles of the award winners and hosting an awards celebration in November.
