Her robust transactional experience includes mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, including domestic and cross-border buy-side and sell-side transactions in augmented and virtual reality, software, cybersecurity, telecommunications, and health care.

Allen is an innovative leader both inside and outside the office and is engaged with several cultural and professional development initiatives and organizations. She is a member of and a lifetime member of the Black Women Lawyers Association of Northern California. Allen also previously served on the board of Leading Women in Technology, a nonprofit that empowers women to develop their knowledge, leadership skills, and networks for greater professional and personal impact.

Honorees will be recognized at an awards dinner on October 18, 2023, as part of Corporate Counsel’s Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference in New Orleans.
