Kim Johnson Recognized at MKE Fellows Luncheon

Milwaukee — The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP is proud to announce that Kimberly Leach Johnson, partner and chair emeritus, was recognized at the MKE Fellows Luncheon for her significant contributions to the organization.

Founded by Quarles & Brady Chair Emeritus John Daniels Jr., the MKE Fellows program is an initiative launched in 2012 to help young Black men from the Milwaukee area graduate from college and prepare for successful careers. The primary goal of MKE Fellows is the creation of a strong pipeline of young, Black male college graduates ready to return to Wisconsin to excel in their careers, build wealth, and become engaged leaders.

Johnson is a member of the firm's Estate, Trust & Wealth Preservation practice group representing individuals and institutions. Her practice focuses from post-mortem tax-mitigation techniques and comprehensive estate planning, to carrying out the estate plan after a client's death. Johnson guides her clients and their families through the processes of defining final wishes and seeing them through with confidence, confidentiality, and competence.

Johnson was introduced and recognized at the annual MKE Fellows Holiday Luncheon by Ed Policy, general counsel and chief operating officer for the Green Bay Packers.
