It is with real pleasure Morse announces that our friend and partner, Faith D. Kasparian, has been named by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly as one of its Top Women of Law for 2020. The prestigious honor, intended to recognize “exceptional women lawyers who are pioneers, educators, trailblazers and role models”, will be celebrated at a socially distanced virtual event on Tuesday November 17th at 6:15 p.m. We can think of no one more deserving of this award.
A superb, multi-faceted attorney who focuses her practice on Privacy and Data Security, Faith saw early-on the potential inherent in a burgeoning field which, in her words, stands “at the intersection of technology and public policy, where the regulatory goal is protecting the interests of individual human beings.” Faith soon obtained certification in US private sector privacy law from the International Association of Privacy Professionals, and leads the Morse Privacy Law Team.
Faith is equally at home when contributing to the civic welfare of her community. For example, drawing on her background in the performing arts, Faith has directed a children’s youth choir, organized and performed a benefit concert to support Dana Farber Cancer Institute, managed a student rock band in their benefit concert to support the World Wildlife Federation, and is an ardent supporter of, and performer in, local community theater.
Faith is widely known as one who constantly and consistently seeks opportunities to support women at every stage of professional development, from encouraging younger women to pursue advanced education to assisting women seeking to return to the workforce. Faith also leads the Morse Women Attorney Group. She sees these efforts, in part, as “paying it forward” for the inspirational mentoring in her own life.
It is not surprising that a common theme is noticeable in the many letters of support for Faith’s nomination for inclusion in the 2020 Top Women of Law; that is, recognition of Faith’s exceptionally gracious interaction with every person she encounters. She is sincere, thoughtful, kind and generous, in everyday exchanges and in acknowledging important life events.
In sum, Faith is the whole package: smart, funny, philanthropic, creative and kind. We’re proud to call her a colleague, and we hope you will join with Morse in congratulating her for this milestone achievement.
