– The law firm of Barley Snyder is pleased to announce Kimberly Decker
has been named to The Legal Intelligencer’s group of “Top Women in Law,” a list highlighting 25 female attorneys in Pennsylvania who have had notable achievements in the profession in the last two years.
“It’s an honor to be in the company of some of Pennsylvania’s best attorneys,” Decker said.
Decker joined Lancaster-based Barley Snyder in 1998. She is now chair of the firm’s Securities practice and has worked on some of Barley Snyder’s largest mergers and acquisitions deals for public and private companies as well as nonprofit clients. In her practice, she regularly helps clients with capital raising and public company securities compliance.
She serves the community as the secretary of the board for the Lancaster Chamber Foundation and volunteers at her alma mater on the board of the Elizabethtown College President’s Council.
In her women’s advocacy projects, she volunteers with the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s Women in Business program, an educational and networking initiative helping growth-minded women in the region. She is an active participant in the program, and has presented several negotiation workshops for women and spoken at chamber events.
“The field of mergers and acquisitions is still a largely male-dominated practice area,” she said. “I attribute a great deal of my success in this industry to the support I have received not only from my family, but from my colleagues – including, in particular, some outstanding male mentors who helped me shape my career. I am happy that my own success has provided me with opportunities to mentor the next generation of female attorneys.”
The women on the list will be honored at a dinner at the Manhattan Penthouse in New York City on Nov. 15.
“I’d like to thank The Legal Intelligencer not just for including me on this list, but for continuing to shine a light on the exemplary work female attorneys are doing across the state,” Decker said. “It’s truly an honor to have my name included among so many accomplished women attorneys.”
