Faegre Baker Daniels has chosen Stacie Gonsalves Linguist to be a member of the 2016 class of Pathfinders, participating in a new program designed by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) to train early-career attorneys in critical career development strategies.
“We’re proud to support Stacie in joining this program designed to help catapult participants’ careers forward,” said FaegreBD Managing Partner Andrew Humphrey. “We believe she will benefit greatly from this leadership and network development opportunity and has the potential to assume a leadership role, not only in our organization, but in the legal profession.”
A litigation associate, Linguist focuses her practice on securities and financial services and issues related to government contracts. She has experience litigating bid protests before various federal and state government agencies, conducting internal investigations, responding to federal investigations and representing contractors in claims disputes with the federal government.
According to LCLD President Robert J. Grey, Jr., the LCLD Pathfinder Program offers participants “intensive in-person training, online experiential learning, and opportunities to network with peers and esteemed LCLD Fellows in small group gatherings.”
The LCLD Pathfinder Program was piloted in 2015 among a select number of LCLD member law firms and corporations. The initiative fills the gap in LCLD programming, targeting junior associates and the youngest members of corporate law departments.
