(CHICAGO) Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP announced today that Tami Kameda Sims was selected to participate in the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity's (LCLD) Fellows Program, a professional development training program aimed at building relationship and leadership skills.

Sims, a partner in Katten's Los Angeles – Century City office in California, concentrates her practice on business, intellectual property, entertainment and appellate litigation in both state and federal courts.

She advises and represents individuals and companies on a variety of matters, including copyright, fair use, trademark, idea submission, music royalty disputes, artist-manager relations, right of publicity, right of privacy, defamation, First Amendment, trade secret, unfair competition, employment and contract disputes.

"At Katten, we are committed to attracting, retaining and promoting attorneys of diverse backgrounds," said Katten's Chief Diversity Officer Leslie D. Minier. "Equally important is setting up the next generation of legal leaders like Tami for success at the firm and this fellowship program helps further that mission."

The Fellows Program, which has trained more than 1,000 mid-career attorneys since 2011, offers participants "a year-long, in-depth program devoted to relationship-building, in-person training, peer-group projects, and extensive contact with LCLD's top leadership and the best teachers in the business," according to LCLD President Robert J. Grey, Jr.
