Lawton Penn

Head of DWT De Novo

Lawton is a fierce advocate for meeting our client’s changing needs. After 25 years as a practicing employment lawyer, and holding a number of leadership roles at the firm, she now leads Davis Wright Tremaine's efforts to modernize the delivery of legal services to provide more value to business. She sees the power of combining excellent legal knowledge with technology, new staffing models, data analytics, and process improvement in order to deliver a more comprehensive business solution. She also champions firm-wide client engagement efforts, looking for companies interested in modernizing the delivery of legal services and creating transformative client relationships. Ultimately, today’s businesses are requiring more of the legal profession than it has historically been prepared to deliver. Lawton is eager for DWT to be on the leading edge of meeting that challenge.
