Jennifer E. Johnsen Receives Leadership in Law Recognition

Greenville, S.C. – September 21, 2023

Gallivan White Boyd (GWB) is pleased to announce that partner Jennifer Johnsen was named a Leadership in Law honoree by South Carolina Lawyers Weekly.

Johnsen was one of 34 honorees at the SC Leadership Awards event held in Columbia, South Carolina.  Honorees are selected by a panel of judges.  Nominations, applications and letters of recommendation are evaluated based on professional accomplishments, bar leadership, community service, pro bono work and mentoring.

Johnsen is not only a leader at GWB, but also in the legal profession and community at large. Within GWB, she leads the firm’s Insurance practice group. Within the broader legal community, she has held numerous leadership positions in the Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel (FDCC), where she currently serves as a senior director for the board of directors, member of the executive committee, chair of the membership development committee and as a vice chair on numerous other committees.  She is also a past-president of the Greenville County Bar Association and has served on the board of trustees for the United Way of Greenville County, including as the chair of the United Way of Greenville County’s 2016 Campaign, which raised more than $16.5 million dollars for the community.

“We are honored to have Jennifer as part of the GWB team. She works tirelessly for her clients, the community, and the legal profession at large, and that dedication is on display each and every day. We believe she is incredibly deserving of this great honor,” said C. William McGee, GWB’s Chief Executive Officer.
