The Business Law Section Diversity Fellowship Program is designed to assist a diverse and inclusive group of lawyers in becoming better leaders within our profession and the Business Law Section, while enhancing their leadership skills, as an encouragement and commitment to attract young and diverse lawyers to join, participate and ultimately serve in leadership positions of the Business Law Section. The Business Law Section will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Fellowship Program with the incoming 2023 class. Applications are being accepted until April 1st. The Inclusion/Mentorship/Fellowship Committee will be sharing Fellow Spotlights to allow the Section to get to know our outstanding current fellows on a weekly basis leading up to the application deadline.
If you know a dynamic business law attorney, encourage them to apply here.

What is your favorite thing about business law practice?
It keeps my mind actively engaged because every client’s concerns, needs, and wants are different. I find that I am constantly approaching the same laws, rules, and concepts in new, interesting ways.
What has been your best experience from your time as a Fellow?
The retreat to Orlando was by far my favorite. It was energizing and motivating to meet my Fellow class and other members of the FL Business Law group after being virtual for so long. FaceTime has nothing on face time.
What kind of cases/matters excite you most to work on?
I enjoy working on many different matters, but I would have to say that my favorite are those that relate to complex derivative litigation. These cases involve strategic legal decision-making that can ultimately decide a case.
What book did you most recently finish?
The River of Doubt by Candice Millard; a riveting nonfiction read about Theodore Roosevelt’s thrilling adventure in the Amazon after his final presidency and failed bid for re-election.
