Alston & Bird Associate Selected for U.S. Bank Law Division Spotlight on Talent Program

Brooke Bolender has been selected as one of 14 associates to participate in the 2024 U.S. Bank Spotlight on Talent program. The year-long cohort experience focuses on growing early-career lawyers through professional and leadership development.

This year’s program will kick off in Minneapolis at U.S. Bank headquarters with networking, leadership, and goal-setting activities with bank attorneys, its general counsel, chief diversity officer, and other bank leaders.

“As we kick off our eighth year of this program, we are more excited than ever to invest in the careers of an impressive group of attorneys from around the country through our immersive year-long Spotlight on Talent program,” said Jim Chosy, senior executive vice president and general counsel for U.S. Bank.

“We’re committed to supporting the advancement of rising talent not only within our own practice, but at our partner law firms and believe this unique cohort experience will help accelerate the growth and development of these attorneys.”

Throughout the year, the cohort will participate in monthly events, including leadership meetings, practice group roundtables, mentoring, and the opportunity to present a CLE to the U.S. Bank Law Division. Spotlight participants also will strengthen their knowledge of the U.S. Bank business and develop stronger relationships with Law Division professionals through attendance at regular meetings.

“I’m honored to represent my firm in the U.S. Bank Law Division Spotlight on Talent program and look forward to working with my cohort,” said Bolender.

Bolender is based in Alston & Bird’s Los Angeles office and is an associate in the firm’s Litigation & Trial Practice Group. Her practice includes a wide range of litigation services, with a focus on complex commercial litigation.

Cohort participants have three to six years of experience and practice in an area relevant to legal services applicable to U.S. Bank business.

The Spotlight on Talent program will conclude at the end of November.
