Bookoff McAndrews Partner, Chris Agrawal, was selected by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) to be a Fellow in 2016. Chris follows the firm’s 2015 Fellow, Dinesh N. Melwani, in this landmark program created to identify, train, and advance the next generation of leaders in the legal profession. According to LCLD President Robert J. Grey, Jr., the LCLD Fellows Program offers participants “an extraordinarily rich year of relationship-building, in-person training, peer-group projects, and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership.”

Founded in 2009, LCLD is a growing organization of more than 240 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who are personally committed to creating a truly diverse legal profession. The LCLD Fellows program, which has trained more than 800 mid-career attorneys since 2011, is one of LCLD’s most important initiatives.
