SAN FRANCISCO, CA, February 13, 2019 – Hanson Bridgett has chosen Neepa Ranavat to be a member of the 2019 class of Pathfinders, participating in a program designed by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) to train high-performing, early to mid-career attorneys in critical career development strategies including leadership and the building of professional networks.

“This is a great honor for Neepa,” said Managing Partner Andrew Giacomini. “It is evidence that she has been identified as having the potential to assume a leadership role, not only in our organization, but in the profession.”

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.”

“We believe it’s a program that can help catapult a person’s career forward.”

Founded in 2009, LCLD is a growing organization of more than 300 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who are personally committed to creating a truly diverse legal profession. The LCLD Pathfinder Program is now in its fourth year as a full-scale program, having been piloted in 2015 among a select number of LCLD Member law firms and corporations. It is an initiative that has filled a gap in LCLD programming, targeting junior associates and the youngest members of corporate law departments.
