January 15, 2019 Firm News

St. Louis Corporate Services Partner and Inclusion Committee Co-chair Sarah Sise has been selected for the 2019 Fellows Program of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD).

Launched in 2011, the program identifies high-potential attorneys from diverse backgrounds and provides tools, training and collaborative opportunities to help build relationships and further develop leadership skills. The program will officially begin in March with a kickoff event in Austin, Texas.

During her Fellow year, Sarah will embark on a learning program that includes in-person conferences, training in the fine points of legal practice, peer-group projects to foster collaboration and build relationships, and extensive contact with LCLD's top leadership, including the managing partners and general counsel who host the Fellows for Learning Experiences and Leadership Lunches.

LCLD's goal is to produce a generation of attorneys with strong leadership and relationship skills who are committed to fostering diversity within their individual institutions and the profession at large.

In addition to her leadership of the firm’s inclusion-related efforts, Sarah practices exclusively in the heavily regulated and constantly evolving field of employee benefits and executive compensation, advising a wide range of clients, including closely held companies, tax-exempt organizations and public companies. She brings over 20 years of experience to the firm and partners with clients to establish, design and implement qualified retirement plans, non-qualified arrangements, welfare and fringe benefit plans, and executive compensation programs. Sarah also guides clients through plan audits and service provider changes.
