PHOENIX – Intellectual Property attorney Cindy Villanueva will represent Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP and the Los Abogados Board at the 2017 Collaborative Bar Leadership Academy.

Villanueva is a member of the Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie Diversity Committee. She also serves on the board of directors of Los Abogados, Arizona’s Hispanic Bar Association, and the Florence Immigrant & Refugee Rights Project.

“The CBLA is a wonderful program that focuses on strengthening the pipeline of diverse leaders and building a foundation for collaborative efforts. I look forward to attending and learning what I can bring back to the firm and to the community to advance opportunities for other attorneys,” said Villanueva.

“We continually strive to engage, develop and position individuals to succeed in our firm,” added IP Practice Group Co-Leader Emily Bayton. “We fully support Cindy’s participation and leadership in programs like this for the benefits it offers to the profession and community.”
