Mark E. Lacis, a business litigation attorney at Ireland Stapleton, has been selected to Mile High United Way’s Emerging Leaders Council’s Steering Committee.

The Emerging Leaders Council is made up of more than 1,200 young community leaders who support Mile High United Way through personal philanthropy, volunteered time and advocacy. Collectively, they volunteer over 300 hours to local causes and give almost $1.5 million to Mile High United Way annually.

“MHUW is a great organization that does important work to improve the lives of the citizens in the greater Denver area,” said Lacis, “I am honored to work with the Emerging Leaders Council to help make a better Denver.”

Lacis’ law practice focuses on defending and prosecuting complex commercial disputes and intellectual property matters for businesses, including startups, mid-size and large companies.
