McOmber, a partner in the firm’s Salt Lake City office, has been honored as one of Utah Business magazine’s 30 Women to Watch for 2018.

McOmber will be honored at a ceremony on May 22 at The Grand America Hotel.

Now in its 19th year, the 30 Women to Watch distinction is based on a nomination process. A panel of previous Women to Watch honorees evaluates the nominations and selects the 30 honorees. The women in the program come from a variety of industries and job titles and all are influential in shaping Utah.

Her complex commercial litigation experience also includes advising and defending insurance carriers on coverage issues and in claims for breach of contract and bad faith, defending companies in Limitation of Liability Act proceedings and defending construction defect cases.

McOmber chairs the firm’s Salt Lake City office Community Involvement Committee where she is responsible for coordinating community service projects that support multiple Utah charitable organizations. In the community, she is involved with the Fourth Street Clinic as a member of its Corporate Council and The Children’s Center where she serves on the Governance Committee.
