DirectWomen Selects Hall Estill Attorney Sarah Miller to 2018 Board Institute Class

Hall Estill, Oklahoma’s leading law firm, with offices in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Denver and Northwest Arkansas, announces that shareholder Sarah C. Miller has been selected as a member of the 2018 DirectWomen Board Institute class. DirectWomen, whose mission is to promote women lawyers for service on the boards of public companies, selected 18 highly accomplished women lawyers for the Board Institute. 

“We are very proud of Sarah being the only Oklahoma attorney selected for this highly regarded class,” said Mike Cooke, Managing Partner for Hall Estill. “Her selection to the 2018 Board Institute speaks to her commitment and dedication as a leader, and we are thrilled to have her knowledge and experience on our team.” 

The 2018 DirectWomen class is comprised of General Counsel of Fortune 500 companies, partners at top law firms and leading lawyers from government and academia. These distinguished women lawyers represent a wide range of business knowledge and experience in their industries, including finance, energy, retail and media. The Board Institute will be held October 10-12, 2018 in New York City.

Board Institute participants are identified through a rigorous search and selection process that involves a written application, reference letters and a committee selection panel. At the Board Institute, participants will interact with leading CEOs, directors of large public companies and top representatives of executive search firms.

“It is a great honor to be selected for DirectWomen’s 2018 class,” Miller said. “I am excited to represent Hall Estill in this initiative to move the needle of gender diversity in boardrooms and to learn from an accomplished group of women attorneys.”

Miller joined Hall Estill’s Energy & Natural Resources practice group in 2017 with 20 years of legal experience. Prior to Hall Estill, Miller served in a variety of legal leadership positions for The Williams Companies, Inc. including Associate General Counsel and Corporate Secretary; and, most recently, Senior Vice President and General Counsel. In her time at Williams, Miller served as a member of its legal department’s business development, midstream and corporate secretary teams.  Prior to joining Williams, she was in private practice as a litigation associate.
