Fraught and challenging legal cases never stop Allison Gambill from working across the table to benefit her clients.
“In all of her years of practice, Allison has been able to work collaboratively with all involved parties, including opposing counsel,” colleague Hannah Skewes says. “A major part of her success comes from her ability to include the perspectives, values and experiences of the people she has partnered with throughout her career.”
As a member of the firm’s Committee on Diversity, Inclusion and Equity, Gambill has helped prioritize fair treatment and the creation of a respectful and supportive workplace. She helped institute a mandatory implicit bias training program where civility, harassment and inclusiveness are highlighted and high-ranking speakers promote a diverse and inclusive workplace.
Gambill serves as an integral member of the team that acts as outside financial services regulator for federally recognized Native American tribes — work that ensures tribal consumers receive the same regulatory protections as they would under state-licensed lenders.
“My definition of success is feeling proud of who you are and your contributions to society on a daily basis,” Gambill says. “I think that when you give, the world has its own way of giving back to you.”
Her No. 1 goal: “To be a good role model for my children and to make them proud of who I am.”
