Sharing the Power Award

Megan Belcher, VP and Chief Employment Counsel at ConAgra Foods Inc., and Nicky Jatana, Partner at Jackson Lewis

Megan Belcher and Nicky Jatana met when they were both young associates at law firms—Husch Blackwell and Jackson Lewis, respectively. Belcher was working as a temporary in-house attorney on loan from Husch Blackwell. Jatana was outside counsel for a lawsuit in which the client was involved. Working on that matter together, they were impressed with each other’s proactive approach to litigation. They stayed in touch after the resolution of that case, referring clients to each other when matters arose in their respective locations—Jatana in Southern California and Belcher in Kansas City.
