Founded in 2009, LCLD is a growing organization of more than 260 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who are personally committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive legal profession.  

July represents clients in merger and acquisition transactions, private equity investments, financing arrangements, as well as general corporate matters and corporate governance issues. In 2014, he was named to the Baltimore Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” list.
