Press Release

Stinson LLP Partner Andrew (Drew) Glasnovich has been named a Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellow for 2024. Attorneys Judith Araujo and Claire Williams have been named as 2024 LCLD Pathfinders.

The LCLD Fellows program offers high-potential, mid-career attorneys from diverse backgrounds at LCLD member organizations with professional and personal development opportunities as well as leadership training, relationship-building resources and access to other LCLD members, including managing partners and general counsel, for mentoring and guidance.

The Pathfinder program provides participants from LCLD member organizations with the opportunity to learn from top leaders in the legal profession, as well as career development experts, and is designed to connect and train high-potential, early-career attorneys from diverse backgrounds with foundational leadership skills and relationship-building resources.

"Claire, Drew and Judith each demonstrate an unwavering commitment to fostering a culture that values all backgrounds and perspectives within our firm and the legal profession. Their passion for positive change and dedication to diversity, equity and inclusion is inspiring," Stinson Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer Ann Thomas said. "The insights and actions resulting from their participation in these programs will be invaluable as we build a more inclusive future."

Araujo's practice focuses on intellectual property litigation, including patent, trademark, trade secret, and copyright litigation, as well as business and commercial litigation. Her clients come from a variety of industries, including manufacturing, telecommunications, construction, aviation, energy, defense, health care and information technology services.

Glasnovich creates and executes innovative solutions for creditors' committees, secured creditors, equipment finance companies, financial institutions, and court-appointed fiduciaries in bankruptcy proceedings and civil litigation nationwide. He is a passionate advocate for creditors and has discovered unreported estate assets, analyzed complex strategies to liquidate real property and other fixed assets, and negotiated complex plan provisions.

Williams counsels clients of all sizes on energy and environmental regulatory matters. Her practice is a balance of state permitting and due diligence for renewable energy developments, as well as compliance with ever-changing state and federal environmental regulations.

LCLD is an organization of more than 400 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who have pledged themselves to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession. The organization works to promote inclusiveness in their organizations, their circles of influence and society, with the ultimate goal of building a more equitable and diverse legal profession.
