Adé Heyliger Selected to 2017 Fellows Program of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity

Adé Heyliger, a Corporate partner in Weil’s Washington, D.C. office, has been selected for the 2017 Fellows Program of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD), a national organization of the legal profession’s top general counsels and managing partners. Launched in March 2011, the Fellows Program is a comprehensive legal talent development program that aims to increase diversity at the leadership levels of law firms and corporate legal departments.

“Already recognized as high achievers within their own organizations, the Fellows will experience a year of multifaceted professional development,” said Robert Grey, President of LCLD. “Our Fellows program is unique in the nation, as it focuses on equipping participants with the advanced skills they need to play larger and more responsible roles in our Member organizations.”

Over the course of the year-long program, participants will be challenged to improve their professional brand, build relationships that enhance professional development, participate in corporate learning experiences, and sharpen stewardship and leadership skills. Upon completion of their Fellows year, the class of 2017 will become part of a community of more than 1,000 Fellows Alumni who mentor younger diverse attorneys, continue with their own career training, and maintain a dynamic national network.

As a partner in the Public Company Advisory Group, Mr. Heyliger advises U.S. public companies, corporate boards and foreign private issuers on SEC disclosure compliance, financial restatements and internal control issues, and corporate governance matters. His practice encompasses counseling companies on securities laws compliance in mergers and acquisitions, capital markets transactions, corporate governance, and various disclosure and regulatory matters.
