The League City Chamber of Commerce has recognized Coats Rose director Carol Keough as a nominee for the 2012 Athena Award.

The ATHENA Leadership Award® is presented to a woman --- or man --- who displays professional excellence, community service and active assistance to women in their attainment of professional excellence and leadership skills.

“I am so proud to have been chosen to join the remarkable women who have been recognized for this award over the years,” says Keough. “Supporting and empowering women to be the best at what they do is something I consider vitally important.”

Keough is a director with Coats Rose and has been practicing law for more than 19 years.  She is Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law, and specializes in complex litigation including employment/labor, insurance coverage, bad faith/extra-contractual, property damage and commercial business law.
