Fredrikson attorney Navita T. Lakhram has been appointed to the Twin Cities Diversity in Practice (TCDIP) and Wanton Injustice Legal Detail (WILD) board of directors, in her capacity as co-chair of TCDIP’s Emerging Leader’s Group. The aim of TCDIP and WILD is to build a vibrant, diverse and inclusive legal community in the Twins Cities.
Lakhram is a motivated self-starter who approaches every challenge with resilience and attention to detail. Her practice focuses on understanding each client’s business strategy—to effectively assist with mergers, acquisitions, real estate and general corporate matters—by leveraging her previous experiences of working in-house at a nationwide franchisor and seconded with a leading national middle market private equity fund.
TCDIP is an association of more than 50 law firms and corporate legal departments with a single mission: to attract, recruit, advance and retain attorneys of color in the Twin Cities legal community. TCDIP is also dedicated to promoting the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul as a great place for attorneys of color to develop professionally and personally.
The WILD’s mission is to provide a platform through which TCDIP’s lawyers and members can actively combat all forms of racism through direct support and partnerships with existing community organizations currently rooted in this work.
