Infrastructure Partner Nancy Smith Named to Daily Journal's Top Women Lawyers List
Nancy Smith, Partner and Co-Founder of Nossaman’s Infrastructure Practice Group, was recognized as one of the Top Women Lawyers in California for 2017 by The Daily Journal, California’s leading legal newspaper. The Top Women Lawyers supplement annually recognizes female lawyers whose work has had an impact in the state and nationally. The Daily Journal noted that Ms. Smith was co-lead for the legal team advising the approximately $5.6 billion Purple Line Light Rail project, which connects the Maryland suburbs to Washington, DC…[and was] principal in charge of Nossaman’s general counsel work for the Metro Gold Line Authority, [where she] played a key role in the $500 million Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Project, which last year opened its 11-mile, six-station Azusa extension in the San Gabriel Valley. The publication also noted Ms. Smith’s role as a board member of Education Through Music Los Angeles, an organization that helps to provide funds to more than 20 area schools to return music to the curriculum. I think it’s incredibly important for kids to have the opportunity to play music, Ms. Smith said. And it’s very sad that the education system has given short shrift to music education.
