Coblentz Hosts Women in Conversation with Patricia Clarkson

Oscar-nominated stage and screen actress Patricia Clarkson appeared onstage before hundreds of people Monday at the Herbst Theater for the City Arts & Lectures series, but she spent Tuesday evening with a more intimate group at the Ferry Building law offices of Coblentz, Patch, Duffy & Bass.

Ms. Clarkson was the guest of honor at an exclusive, women-only event celebrating the accomplishments of women in business and in the arts, as well as Coblentz’s dedication to promoting women in the legal profession.

Following a wine reception, guests enjoyed an energetic conversation between Ms. Clarkson and Coblentz partner Tay Via.

Drawn to Coblentz because of the firm’s commitment to pro bono work, Ms. Clarkson commented on her work with Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and disaster relief in New Orleans.
