Scholtes_Jeremy_E_202.jpgMiles & Stockbridge is proud to announce that Jeremy Scholtes, an associate in the law firm’s Frederick office, recently graduated from Leadership Frederick County, an intensive, nine-month program conducted by the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce to engage local professionals and to promote a fuller understanding of  the community’s issues, resources and opportunities. Scholtes was further honored as his classmates’ choice to deliver a speech on leadership during the graduation ceremony, which drew 200 business and political leaders.

“Leadership never goes out of style,” said Tom Lynch, a principal in Miles & Stockbridge’s Frederick office and a past chair of the Chamber’s board of directors. “With grace, humor and poignancy, Jeremy delivered one of the most inspiring speeches on leadership I have ever heard and he brought to it the unique perspective of a military veteran.”

Scholtes was one of approximately 50 professionals selected for the 2016 class—the largest class in the program’s history. A graduate of the United States Military Academy (West Point) and the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, Scholtes had a notable career with the United States Army, serving most recently as a labor and employment attorney, prosecutor and chief of a regulatory compliance and ethics counseling group. Additionally, he served in the 25th Infantry Division as a rifle platoon leader and subsequently in the 75th Ranger Regiment as a platoon leader and battalion training officer. He was deployed to Iraq three times. Scholtes is currently a major in the United States Army Reserve and represents U.S. Army soldiers and former soldiers in their appeals before the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.

At Miles & Stockbridge, Scholtes represents clients in real estate, land use, construction, government contracts, intellectual property, and general commercial and business litigation matters. He has assisted government contractors and sub-contractors in a variety of transactional and dispute matters, including, but not limited to, performing analyses of Federal Acquisition Regulation clauses; negotiating and drafting subcontracts; and claims preparation and defense
