Karen P. Freeman, a member with Mitchell, Williams, Selig, Gates and Woodyard, P.L.L.C., has graduated from Leadership Arkansas Class XI, a nine-month program designed to bring together leaders from across Arkansas to learn more about the state's business, political and economic climate. Leadership Arkansas is a program of the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce and Associated Industries of Arkansas.

Participants in Leadership Arkansas are individuals who are most likely to use their leadership abilities to benefit the state. They are selected from a statewide pool of applicants and are considered to be active in such sectors as business, education, the arts, religion, government, community-based organizations and volunteer services. The innovative program is designed to give participants a first-hand look at the interactions between cities, industries, government and the people of the state. More than 400 emerging Arkansas leaders have successfully completed the program, which began in 2005.

Freeman, based in the firm's Rogers office, is an Arkansas native who has also practiced law in Washington and Houston. She is vice-chair of litigation practice group and advises businesses on a wide range of litigation matters from complex commercial to premises liability cases involving multi-million dollar claims. She also counsels clients on significant compliance matters involving corporate security, workplace violence and threat management programs and protocols. 

A graduate of the University of Arkansas and the Washington and Lee University School of Law, Freeman is a member of the American Bar Association and the state bar associations of Arkansas and Texas.
