July, a principal in the law firm’s Baltimore office, has been recognized by The Daily Record with its Leadership in Law award. July was selected in Leadership in Law’s Generation J.D. category, which honors up-and-coming lawyers who are already making a difference in their profession and in their communities.

As a transactional lawyer in the Corporate, Securities & Tax Practice Group at Miles & Stockbridge, July represents clients in mergers and acquisitions, private equity investments, financing arrangements, as well as general corporate matters and corporate governance issues.  In 2016, he was chosen by Miles & Stockbridge for a landmark program created by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity to identify, train and advance the next generation of leaders in the legal profession.

July is a member of the board of directors of the National Academy Foundation School of Baltimore and is a co-founder of Baltimore Young Professionals, which creates networking and learning opportunities for African-American professionals.  He formerly served on the board of Live Baltimore, a nonprofit organization committed to promoting the benefits of Baltimore City living.

Selected by the Warnock Foundation as one of its 2017 Social Innovators, July is organizing an outdoor community film watch program that will highlight movies that feature black role models, aimed at educating local students and breaking down negative perceptions about inner city black communities. The film series will screen in his Hollins Market neighborhood in Baltimore.

An outside panel of legal and business leaders selected the Leadership in Law honorees, who were recognized at a networking reception and awards dinner on May 17 at the BWI Hilton in Linthicum Heights, MD.
