DLA Piper is pleased to announce that Laura Sixkiller, a Litigation partner in the firm's Phoenix office, has been named one of Arizona's Most Influential Women by AZ Business and AZRE magazines. The list honors 50 Arizona women for their impact on their organizations, the region's business climate and their communities.
In an AZ Big Media profile announcing her spot on the 2019 list, Sixkiller said she is frequently required to develop creative solutions while representing her clients: "One litigation matter I handled ended in such an amicable way that my client and the opposing party went on to start a new business relationship. In another matter, a business sale dispute, the offer of a horse is what it took to get the other side to settle."
Sixkiller also noted that her openness to new ideas and willingness to adapt are qualities that have made a significant impact on the way she practices law.
Her practice involves litigation of complex commercial, securities, M&A, regulatory and corporate matters in federal and state courts and administrative and arbitral forums, as well as counseling clients on the development of strategies to avoid, resolve and prevail in high-stakes disputes.
