CHARLENE BROWN
Co-Founder and Director of Howlett Brown, Founder of Honest Voice

Every single day since starting my own business, I have appreciated my experience at Morgan Lewis more and more. It definitely broadened my experience as a lawyer, including applying that background broadly across different industries, because prior to joining Morgan Lewis my experience had been predominantly in the financial services sector. I also gained invaluable experience related to business development.

RACHEL GONZALEZ
Executive Vice President, General Counsel & Secretary, Starbucks Corporation

My work at Morgan Lewis really set me up for success in my career and ultimately my move in-house. When I was at the firm, I served in the business and finance practice with broad exposure across corporate disciplines, multiple industries, and diverse client groups. I handled mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance, and I served financial services, waste management, consumer product, learning and training, media, and telecom clients. I also had the opportunity to serve in an international context. I did a lot of work in Latin America and the United States, and ultimately my service in London provided me with the opportunity to work with companies in the United Kingdom and Europe, Middle East, and Africa region.

Life is about constantly taking on new challenges and continuing to learn and develop, and this job presented me with those opportunities. In addition, the GE Legal Department is the standard-bearer of in-house legal departments. I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead such a talented team.
