Mintz is pleased to announce that Of Counsel Angela Y. Kung has been selected for the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD)’s 2020 Fellows Program, and Associate Courtney Herndon has been chosen for the LCLD 2020 Pathfinder Program.

One of LCLD’s most important initiatives, the Fellows Program identifies, trains, and advances the next generation of leaders in the legal profession. The program offers exclusive opportunities to network with and learn from the top leaders in the legal field. Complementing the Fellows program, the LCLD Pathfinders program was designed to train high-performing, early-career attorneys in critical career development strategies including leadership and the building of professional networks.

Ms. Kung draws on significant knowledge of the wireless regulatory landscape and experience at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to advise clients on, and help them comply with, FCC rules and regulations. With particular expertise on spectrum use policies and auction procedures, she has shepherded Mintz's clients through several FCC auctions related to next-generation 5G wireless technologies and routinely advocates on behalf of clients to ensure that the agency’s rules align with their interests.

Ms. Herndon is an Associate in Mintz's Intellectual Property Practice. She has a broad intellectual property practice focused on patent litigation with an emphasis on Section 337 litigation before the U.S. International Trade Commission. Ms. Herndon’s practice also includes patent litigation in the Federal District Courts and appellate matters before the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. Before joining Mintz, she clerked for Associate Justice Geraldine Hines of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court and Associate Justice Vickie L. Henry of the Massachusetts Appeals Court.

Founded in 2009, LCLD is a growing organization of more than 320 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who are personally committed to creating a truly diverse legal profession.
