Epiq’s Alison Wisniewski Named Woman to Watch for 2023
Chief Legal Officer and Secretary selected by CCBJ
NEW YORK – June 29, 2023 – Epiq is proud to announce today that Alison Wisniewski, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary for Epiq Global, has been selected as a member of the Corporate Counsel Business Journal’s (CCBJ) inaugural 50 Women to Watch for 2023.
With nearly 500 nominations, winners were chosen who demonstrate exceptional leadership qualities, business acumen, and a commitment to mentorship in their respective communities, according to the publication. CCBJ will publish a special supplement in October with profiles of all those being recognized.
Epiq has changed dramatically since Wisniewski joined Epiq in 2010. She has supported Epiq through substantial expansions and transactions, including significant growth via acquisitions, opening offices around the world, and going from a publicly traded company to a private one, all while navigating a rapidly changing legal, regulatory, and compliance environment.
Wisniewski now manages 17 employees across legal and compliance, providing support on a global scale across 19 countries, three global resource centers, 13 secure data centers, and hundreds of client sites. This work encompasses, among other things, negotiating all legal agreements; completing and facilitating all client requested security assessments and audits; handling all litigation and employment matters; and, leading the enterprise-wide compliance program, including SOC, data privacy globally, HIPAA, and crisis management.
Wisniewski is also the executive sponsor of Epiq’s diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) program and oversees Epiq’s ESG/CSR program. Under her leadership, these programs have grown exponentially. Today, Epiq is a force of more than 8,000 people strong, and of its U.S. employees, 46 percent are women and 47 percent are people of color. Allyship is the guiding focus for Epiq’s 2023 DEI journey. Her goal is to continue to build a workplace where everyone feels valued, respected, and heard, and where all employees have equal opportunities to succeed.
