Gillian Hobson Appointed to NACD General Counsel Steering Committee


Vinson & Elkins partner Gillian Hobson has been appointed to the National Association of Corporate Directors’ (NACD) General Counsel Steering Committee.

As the recognized authority on leading boardroom practices, NACD helps boards strengthen investor trust and public confidence by ensuring that today’s directors are well prepared for tomorrow’s challenges. World-class boards join NACD to elevate performance, gain foresight and instill confidence.

The General Counsel Steering Committee is responsible for guiding NACD’s Strategic-Asset General Counsel initiative, created to support the evolution of the general counsel from solely a legal advisor to a strategic partner in the boardroom.

Hobson’s practice focuses on corporate finance and securities. She has represented both issuers and underwriters in public and private debt and equity securities offerings, including offerings of limited partner interests of publicly traded partnerships, also known as MLPs.

In addition to her practice, Hobson is a member of V&E’s Management Committee and is actively engaged in the firm’s recruiting, mentoring and diversity initiatives.
