March 17, 2023

Spencer Fane is pleased to announce that Valentine Uduebor has been named a Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellow for 2023.

Designed for lawyers with eight to 15 years of experience, this landmark yearlong professional development program connects high-potential attorneys with leading general counsel, managing partners, and their peers for mentoring and career guidance. As Fellows selected by the general counsel and managing partners of LCLD member corporations and law firms such as Spencer Fane, Valentine and his program peers will participate in training sessions and have opportunities to interact with key legal and business leaders of the country’s most prestigious organizations.

“Since its inception in 2011, the LCLD Fellows program has produced some of the most impactful leaders in our industry,” said LCLD President Robert J. Grey Jr. “I am pleased to see so many talented individuals — 452 of them — being recognized for their accomplishments.”

Over the years, the LCLD Fellows program has built a reputation for helping to launch participants into top legal positions, with a substantial number of Fellows alumni becoming leaders within their organizations. Fellows have distinguished themselves from others by being deeply engaged, indispensable to key clients and teams, invested in attorney mentoring and professional development, and on a trajectory toward leadership positions.

When he graduates from the LCLD Fellows Program, Valentine will join attorneys Brittainy Joyner, Kristen Walker, Linda Knight, Brian Peterson and Natalie Washington in LCLD Alumni Program membership.

At Spencer Fane, Valentine focuses his practice on helping clients through insurance and premises liability litigation, construction litigation, and other civil matters. He has successfully litigated more than 50 jury trials and has obtained numerous defense verdicts as lead counsel.
