Danielle Mason Leading Ladies 250x140 Beasley Allen lawyer Danielle Ward Mason, firm recognized by Girl Scouts organization for female leadershipBeasley Allen received a double helping of recognition from the Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama (GSSA) today, as the group celebrated the impact of women leaders in the community and applauded organizations and businesses that support girls’ and women’s leadership and success. Danielle Ward Mason, a lawyer in the firm’s Mass Torts Section, was presented with the inaugural GSSA Leading Lady award, and Beasley Allen was named the Leading Workplace for Women.

“Thank you Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama for selecting me as your first Leading Lady,” said Danielle. “I am honored by this recognition and humbled to be included in such an amazing group of successful local women. Success does not come easy and I am thankful for organizations like the Girl Scouts that prepare young girls for leadership and empower them to succeed.”

The award recognizes the accomplishments of women leaders and celebrates them for being outstanding role models in their local community. Danielle was selected from among 12 nominees who have made special contributions to the community through civic, academic or professional efforts.

“We congratulate Danielle on this well-earned recognition of her leadership in the community,” said Beasley Allen Founder Jere Beasley. “Danielle is representative of a number of female attorneys Beasley Allen is fortunate to include among our ranks. She and her female law partners distinguish themselves by demonstrating leadership daily, striving for excellence and maintaining compassion for our clients.”

Danielle joined Beasley Allen in 2009. She is a member of the trial team that has secured nearly $200 million in verdicts against Johnson & Johnson in litigation alleging the company’s talcum powder products significantly increase a woman’s risk of developing ovarian cancer when the products are used in the perineal area.

In January, Danielle also was appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee that will help lead the consolidated multidistrict litigation pending in New Jersey federal court concerning diabetes drug Invokana’s link to kidney damage and diabetic ketoacidosis. She also leads the firm’s Reglan litigation, fighting to keep clients’ claims alive in the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2011 generic preemption decision in Pliva v. Mensing.

“I am proud of Danielle and proud to be one of her law partners,” said Leigh O’Dell, who was selected as co-lead counsel in a second multidistrict litigation regarding talc use. “It is challenging to successfully lead multiple litigation efforts, maintain a full case load and remain an active leader in your community.”

In addition to honoring Danielle, the Girl Scouts also selected Beasley Allen as the Leading Workplace for Women, recognizing its culture of promoting leadership and success among girls and women. The firm was among four area businesses nominated for the award.

“Beasley Allen is honored to receive the Leading Workplace for Women award and, more importantly, to be recognized as a workplace that fosters an inclusive and positive environment,” said Beasley. “We are committed to providing a workplace where all of our attorneys and staff can grow and reach their full potential.”
