The Nashville Bar Foundation has chosen Lieff Cabraser attorney Andrew Kaufman to participate in its 2017-2018 Leadership Forum program. Mr. Kaufman was selected as one of 25 local attorneys to partake in a nine-month professional development program.
The leadership program is intended for lawyers with between three and eight years’ experience. The program “encourages diversity in the practice of law” and helps attorneys from differing backgrounds to build relationships with each other.
“We are so excited to have such a great group of new and diverse leaders in the profession and our community as members of the NBF Leadership Forum,” stated NBF President Gail Ashworth. “The tradition of providing participants with a unique view of leadership opportunities and developments in Nashville and the strong mentoring program is something we are all proud to be a part of as the Leadership Forum program enters its fourth year.”
Congratulations Andrew on this prestigious accomplishment!
