The lawyers and staff of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP are pleased to congratulate their former colleague, Jeanette Lodwig, the general counsel of the Seattle Foundation, for her recognition by the "Puget Sound Business Journal" in its 2016 Corporate Counsel of the Year Awards.

Ms. Lodwig, who was an attorney at Davis Wright Tremaine for seven years prior to joining the Seattle Foundation in 2012, was named the Outstanding Legal Officer of a Nonprofit Organization. She will be recognized along with the other winners at a gala dinner on February 25 at the Fairmont Olympic hotel in downtown Seattle and in a special report within the February 26 issue of the Journal.

At Davis Wright Tremaine, Ms. Lodwig was a member of the Tax-Exempt Organizations practice group, where she advised many foundations, public charities, trade associations, and other nonprofit organizations.

"We’re all extremely proud of Jeanette," said LaVerne Woods, chair of the practice group. "Her talent and commitment were evident from early on, and we are delighted to see her receive this much-deserved recognition."
