February 13, 2017
Akerman LLP, a top 100 U.S. law firm serving clients across the Americas, today announced that Litigation Partner Enjolique Aytch in Fort Lauderdale has been selected to participate in the 2017 Fellows Program of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD). She joins a class of 239 experienced lawyers from around the United States who are committed to fostering diversity within their individual institutions and the profession at large.
 
Launched in 2009, the LCLD Fellows Program is a highly structured initiative built to increase diversity at the leadership levels of the nation's most preeminent law firms and corporate legal departments. Over the course of the yearlong 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.
 
Aytch focuses her practice on products liability and mass tort litigation. She has extensive experience defending domestic and international medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers in multi-plaintiff actions, as well as hospitals and physicians in medical malpractice actions in all stages of litigation, including trial. Aytch serves as Chair of the DRI Product Liability Diversity Committee; Pro Bono Co-Chair for the South Florida Chapter of the Federal Bar Association; a mentor and committee member for the Southern District of Florida's Court Assisted Reentry (C.A.R.E) Initiative; and a member of The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law's Election Protection. Her leadership and professional achievements have earned her recognition among The National Black Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 and Miami-Dade County's 40 Under 40 Black Leaders of Today and Tomorrow.
 
According to LCLD President Robert J. Grey Jr., the LCLD Fellows Program offers participants "an extraordinarily rich year of relationship-building, in-person training, peer-group projects, and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership."
 
LCLD is a national organization of more than 260 corporate chief legal officers, in-house general counsel and law firm managing partners, who are personally committed to creating a truly diverse legal profession. The LCLD Fellows Program, which has trained more than a thousand mid-career attorneys since 2011, is one of LCLD's most important initiatives. Other programs include a national mentoring initiative serving more than 2,000 mentors and mentees, a 1L Scholars program involving more than 200 first-year law students, and special programming for members through Continuing Legal Education (CLE) presentations and other platforms.
