Ms. Llewellyn will advise senior leadership on a wide range of strategic initiatives related to diversity, equity and inclusion. Her C-level position is part of the firm’s increased investment in further developing its legal talent and builds on the commitment the firm made to diversity and inclusion in 2007 when it first hired a director to focus on the firm’s diversity initiatives.

Ms. Llewellyn joins Kramer Levin after serving as chief diversity officer, associate vice president for human resources and deputy general counsel for St. John’s University, where she oversaw the university’s diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives and the human resources department. She was a member of the President’s Advisory Council and presented on matters related to diversity and inclusion to the board of trustees and board of governors. Prior to joining St. John’s University, Ms. Llewellyn practiced law at an Am Law 100 firm.

Mat Rosswood, chief operating officer of the firm, added, “Nada brings precisely the experience and talents required to help us set and achieve diversity and inclusion goals that not only are consistent with overall strategy but help promote it. Hers will be an important voice in strategic discussions going forward, and I look forward to our work together.” Ms. Llewellyn will join the team of officers directly led by Mr. Rosswood.

Kramer Levin has historically recognized that diverse perspectives and experience have fundamental value and are necessary to achieve success. A champion for diversity, the firm has been recognized for its progressive policies, pro bono service and Diversity Committee by numerous publications, including Chambers and Vault.

Chris Auguste, chair of Kramer Levin’s Diversity Committee, said, “Nada is the right person at the right time to fill the role of the firm’s chief diversity and inclusion officer. In this position, Nada will provide a unifying voice for our diversity initiatives and ensure that we achieve our diversity, equity and inclusion goals.”

Ms. Llewellyn said, “I’m delighted for the opportunity to join Kramer Levin, a firm that is making significant investments now to help ensure the future success of its diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. I feel the energy and enthusiasm for positive change throughout the firm, and I look forward to collaborating with leadership and utilizing my experience to help accelerate that process.”

Ms. Llewellyn received a J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, where she served as an associate editor of the University of Michigan Law Review, and her B.A. from Dartmouth College.
