Delivering Results for Our Community

With nearly a decade practicing law, Emily Webb is a highly qualified lawyer whose leap from big law to the corporate world has brought with it high value experience and the ability to anticipate legal problems long before they arise. She has advised in a wide range of legal areas including commercial contracts, education, healthcare, computer software, and information technology.   She currently holds the position of Commercial Counsel at Contentful. 

As an advocate of giving back to the community, she has actively served on many local boards. Emily's community outreach has touched the YMCA of Greater Des Moines, City of Des Moines Plan and Zoning Commission, the Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC) as Past President, and she is currently the President of the After School Arts Program (ASAP), to name a few. In her free time, Emily uses her law degree by helping refugees from around the world obtain green cards from the U.S. State Department. It goes without saying that Emily is passionate about making the world a better place, and her commitment to her values has allowed her to serve on the Association of Corporate Counsel Board for the state of Iowa. As a lawyer, Emily represents the best qualities of her profession as it intersects with and strengthens the community around her.


After setting Iowa state track records in high school, Emily was an All-American runner at Wartburg College where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in English and Creative Writing. Emily holds her juris doctorate from Creighton University School of Law and a MBA from the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business. She was named in the local Business Record 40 Under 40 last year and was a finalist for the Girl Scouts of Iowa Inspiring Women of Iowa Award. She also won the Iowa Governor’s Volunteer Award in 2019 for her extensive volunteer work in the Des Moines community. In her spare time, she and her husband share a passion for being active including running marathons, hiking at National Parks, and mountain climbing.
