Lowenstein Sandler has selected partner Lesley P. Adamo to represent the firm in the 2019 Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellows Program. Adamo will participate in this landmark program created to identify, train, and advance the next generation of leaders in the legal profession.

Adamo is a partner in the firm’s Tax Group, where she provides counsel on a variety of transactional tax matters, including corporate, partnership, and individual tax issues arising at the federal, state, and international levels. She also advises clients in connection with mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, fund formation, and the various tax issues specific to startup businesses. Adamo has extensive experience in various other tax matters, such as cross-border transactions, blockchain transactions, private foundation excise tax issues, derivative transactions, and FATCA compliance.

“This is a wonderful and well-deserved honor for Lesley,” said Brian A. Silikovitz, partner and Chair of Lowenstein’s Tax Group. “She joins a select group of experienced attorneys from diverse backgrounds who have been recognized for their potential as leaders in their organizations. Her participation in this program further demonstrates our firm’s ongoing support of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession as well as of our attorneys and their career development.”

According to LCLD President Robert J. Grey, Jr., the LCLD Fellows Program offers participants a year-long, in-depth program devoted to relationship-building, in-person training, peer-group projects, and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership and the best teachers in the business.
