Marie DiSante, a Founding Partner and Firm Managing Partner of Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger LLP, was designated an honoree at Corporate Counsel's National Women in Law Awards in the Lifetime Achievement category for her transformative legal leadership. DiSante, along with other honorees, were recognized in December of 2018 for their demonstrated extraordinary leadership and business acumen as they have guided their organizations through often treacherous roads to success.
