The Mitzel Group congratulates senior partner Lisa L. Liu for being named to the “Trailblazers West” list by The American Lawyer, a leading national legal trade outlet.

The crux of Lisa’s selection is based on her ability to provide unique, exclusive insight at the intersection of business, finance and law to level the playing field for female and minority founders working to grow their entities. The judging panel recognizes Lisa as a true agent of change for her all-encompassing methods to help advance innovative businesses, regardless of the leadership teams’ gender or race, by providing tools that empower her clients and women-led startups to successfully launch new ventures. The American Lawyer’s coverage on Lisa’s accolade notes her efforts to “shape a more inclusive environment by educating women-led startups on how to achieve their growth potential and, conversely, women investors on how to make fruitful investments.”

Lisa’s legal practice focuses on delivering proactive, creative approaches to structuring, operating and growing businesses, as well as business immigration-related matters. Armed with a finance background and her partnership in the venture capital fund How Women Invest, Lisa’s business mindset and solutions-oriented tactics make her a valuable resource and influential voice advocating for her clients, as well as broad, cumulative change that will ultimately advance the way business is conducted. Her trailblazing leadership strives to make an impact for the betterment of the legal and business industries, and our communities.

While The American Lawyer produces the practice-focused Trailblazer series annually, this is the first year it has published regional lists, with the West defined as Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. The special supplement spotlights individuals who are moving the needle in the legal industry across all practice areas in these states.
