Susie Woodard was taught to believe what many general counsel were: when it comes to law firms, bigger is better. But since getting to know Primerus and its small to mid-sized law firms, Woodard has changed her mind. “I have always been in-house. I was raised to believe that you use big law firms,” said Woodard, who is senior vice president and general counsel for Riviana Foods Inc. in Houston, Texas. “This has certainly changed my attitude.” Woodard learned about Primerus through member firm Gordon Arata Montgomery Barnett in New Orleans, Louisiana. Firm attorney John Y. Pearce invited her to attend the Primerus International Convocation in Miami this past May.
