Following a long-time firm tradition, Bell Nunnally Partner Dania Duncan Moreno has been selected to the 2022 “Fellows Program” class for the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) – an organization comprised of more than 400 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners dedicated to building a more open and diverse legal profession. In addition, Bell Nunnally Associate Alexandria Risinger was selected to the LCLD’s 2022 “Pathfinder Program.”
“We’re proud of our long-running support of the LCLD, and it has become a critical component of our firmwide commitment to diversity and inclusion in the legal industry and beyond,” said Christopher Trowbridge, managing partner of Bell Nunnally. “Programs like the LCLD’s Fellows and Pathfinders complement our internal initiatives and efforts focused on the broader Dallas business community.”
