Lisa A. Bothwell & Melanie J. Wender Present Bravo Themed Program at BCBA Marathon CLE Day

Attorneys Lisa A. Bothwell and Melanie J. Wender of Antheil Maslow & MacMinn, LLP will share legal lessons from Bravo reality shows at the Bucks County Bar Association’s August CLE Marathon Day on August 23, 2023. Their session, “What in the Andy Cohen: Family and Business Law Lessons from Bravolebrities,” will take place August 23, 2023, 3:30–4:30 PM, at the Bucks County Bar Association, 135 East State Street, Doylestown, PA.

Bothwell and Wender took inspiration from Bravo reality shows to create this educational program on issues in family and corporate law, highlighting such lessons as:

• The importance of setting up a prenup when one partner owns a business
• Confronting underhanded tactics in divorce when large amounts of money are at stake
• Managing custody for an estranged or alienated parent
• Setting clients’ expectations
• Avoiding issues with cohabitation

“It is no secret that ‘Bravolebrities,’ people who are famous for appearing on a Bravo reality TV show, have had all kinds of legal troubles over the years, specifically with their relationships and business endeavors,” said Wender.

“These public disputes provide us with plenty of one-liners and memes,” added Bothwell. “However, there are also valuable family and business law lessons in almost every headline.”

The program at the Bucks County Bar Association will be followed by a Bravo-themed Happy Hour following the final CLE session. Participants in the full day program may earn a total of 6 CLE credits, including 4 substantive and 2 ethics. For more information or to register, visit

Bothwell advises corporate clients on a broad range of matters, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, capital raising events, business separations, and corporate governance. She regularly negotiates and prepares operating agreements, shareholder agreements, and partnership agreements.

Wender represents clients in all areas of family law, including complex equitable distribution issues, custody matters, high net worth support matters, and Protection from Abuse actions at Antheil Maslow & MacMinn. Though Wender is an experienced litigator, she tries to negotiate amicable resolutions outside of court for all of her clients.
