Scottsdale Progress

Below is an excerpt:

Though law firms nationwide still struggle to reflect the country's diversity in their leadership, national law firm Quarles & Brady bucked that trend when it named Scottsdale resident Leonardo Loo managing partner of its Phoenix office in September.

Loo, who was born in Venezuela and has familial ties to China and Mexico, previously worked as the firm's Phoenix Business Law Practice Group Chair.

He practices in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, commercial financing, international transactions, securities, and general corporate law involving clients in a wide variety of industries.

"I love the practice of law because I love helping clients and learning about the process of a deal," Loo said.

Loo represents a small but growing contingent of lawyers with minority backgrounds taking leadership roles at law firms.
