Mintz is pleased to share that Member Alec Zadek has been selected to participate in the 2020 Young American Leaders Program (YALP) hosted by Harvard Business School and its ongoing Project on U.S. Competitiveness. The Young American Leaders Program brings together emerging leaders in various industries to help address pressing community and global issues.
In its ninth year, the Young American Leaders Program will host 140 leaders from 14 U.S. cities to participate in a four-day workshop to discuss ways to collaborate across sectors and develop best practices to help local and global communities thrive. Senior leaders within each respective city are asked to nominate the individuals who are creative, collaborative, and have had a strong track record in civic engagement, among other qualifications.
Alec is a Member in the firm's Litigation Section and has significant experience advising directors, officers, members, managers, and shareholders of closely-held businesses regarding their fiduciary duties, corporate governance, and indemnification rights and responsibilities. Alec also litigates and advises insurers concerning complex coverage issues. Alec is well-known for his pro bono work in Massachusetts, which focuses primarily on representing survivors of sex trafficking and domestic violence and raising awareness of legal issues impacting survivors of human trafficking. He is the founder and Co-Chair of the Boston Bar Association's Human Trafficking Committee.
Alec will join the other leaders and faculty at Harvard Business School in June.
