The Cook Group, PLLC, a multi-state litigation law firm with key practices in products liability, general liability, commercial litigation, appellate issues and sports management, proudly celebrates the second anniversary of its founding by announcing its official national certification as a “WBE” by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (“WBENC”).
The WBENC is the nation’s leader in women’s business development. Founded in 1997, it is the top third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women. A “WBE” is a certified women owned business by the WBENC. To become a “WBE,” a business goes through a rigorous and stringent national certification process to confirm that the business is owned, managed, and controlled by a woman or women. Before a firm may be considered for certification, it must demonstrate that it is at least 51% owned, controlled, managed and operated by a woman or women. The WBENC certification of The Cook Group, PLLC as a “WBE” is the most widely recognized and respected national certification for a women-owned business in the United States. In fact, the WBENC certification is considered the gold standard for women-owned business certification and is accepted by more than 1000 corporations, as well as many states, cities, and other entities. “We are so proud to have earned this important recognition and certification from the WBENC,” stated Kerryann
Cook, Founder and Managing Partner of The Cook Group. “We started our firm two years ago as a minority and women-owned law firm dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion within the practice of law while providing our clients with more modern, efficient and effective legal representation. Joining this network of women-owned businesses is meaningful to us as the WBENC’s recognition and promotion of the need for diversity in the business world aligns with our goals and core values as a firm. We are proud to join WBENC in its efforts to model and create positive changes in the workplace with dynamic and diverse work force.” Please see the following like for the full press release.
