Leora Maccabee Selected for the 2019 Woman of Promise Award by the Minneapolis Jewish Federation's Pearl Society

May 14, 2019

Maslon is pleased to announce that Leora Maccabee, partner in the firm's Litigation Group, has been selected as the 2019 Woman of Promise as part of the Women of Intention Awards presented by the Minneapolis Jewish Federation's Pearl Society. Now in its fourth year, the Women of Intention Awards recognizes six women each year who respond to injustice with intention and who apply their personal grit and gifts to some of the most difficult issues facing the community and the world. The Woman of Promise Award is given to women aged 30-45 who have already taken on significant leadership in the community and who possesses all the attributes and skills necessary to lead the Minneapolis Jewish or secular community of the future.

Leora is a trial lawyer practicing primarily in the areas of general business and trust and estate litigation. In the business litigation side of her practice, she prides herself on offering exceptional legal service to businesses—from multimillion-dollar companies to startups—facing conflicts and challenges that at minimum threaten to distract from the products they are selling and services they are providing to our community, and at maximum are bet-the-company matters. Whether that means going to court or engaging in mediation, she represents her clients aggressively, intelligently, and effectively, and with a keen eye towards their business needs.

Leora is an active leader in the Jewish community. She is the founder of TC Jewfolk and serves on the Board of Directors of its parent non-profit Jewfolk, Inc., a Jewish engagement organization that connects, engages, and inspires Jewish adults through innovative methods, strategies, and communications. In 2013, Leora received the Arthur T. Pfefer Memorial Award from the Twin Cities Cardozo Society for outstanding leadership and commitment to the Jewish and general community.
