Polsinelli Attorney Margaux Savee Selected as 2017 Leadership Council on Legal Diversity Fellow

Margaux Savee, a principal of national law firm Polsinelli, has been selected for inclusion in the 2017 Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellow program. The LCLD Fellow program is regarded to be one of the most comprehensive legal talent development programs in the country.

“Polsinelli is honored that Margaux has been selected to participate as a 2017 LCLD Fellow,” said Chuck Thompson, managing partner of Polsinelli’s San Francisco office. “Margaux joins a select group of talented and experienced attorneys from diverse backgrounds who have been recognized for their potential as future leaders in their firms.”

Savee is a patent litigation attorney with significant experience in post-grant matters and has a deep understanding of what it takes for clients to successfully navigate the patent post-grant review process. She has represented clients in the U.S. District Courts, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the U.S. International Trade Commission, and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board involving a broad range of technologies, including medical devices, computer software and hardware, and biotechnology.

A former president of the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Silicon Valley, Savee is also active in the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board Bar Association. She is a member of the California Minority Counsel Program (CMCP) and serves on CMCP’s Annual Conference planning committee.

“It is a privilege to participate in a program that builds relationships among a broad spectrum of diverse attorneys who have been recognized as high achievers in their firms and organizations,” Savee said. “Being an LCLD Fellow will enable each of us to access learning experiences and further develop stewardship and leadership skills in ways that will help shape the future of the profession.”

Savee will participate in the Fellows program for a full year. Upon completion, the Class of 2017 will become part of a community of more than 1,000 alumni who mentor younger diverse attorneys, continue with their own career training, and maintain a dynamic national network.
