Butler Snow is pleased to announce Kathleen Ingram Carrington has been selected to participate in the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD)’s fellows program. Carrington is the third Butler Snow attorney in as many years to be chosen as a fellow for the program.
LCLD is an organization of more than 300 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession. The organization carries out its mission by implementing action programs designed to attract, inspire and nurture diverse talent within their member organizations, thereby helping a new and more diverse generation of attorneys ascend to leadership positions.
Launched in 2011, LCLD’s fellows program selects high-potential, mid-career attorneys from diverse backgrounds and sets them on the path to leadership of their organizations. Participants will embark on a year-long professional development regimen that includes in-person conferences, training in the fine points of legal practice, peer-group projects to foster collaboration and building relationships and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership.
“We are excited and proud of Kat for her selection to this prestigious program,” said Donald Clark, Jr., chairman of Butler Snow. “We look forward to her continued success in positively impacting our firm and our community.”

She frequently represents clients locally, regionally, and nationally in areas of recreational vehicles, industrial machinery, and automobiles in product liability and personal injury defense cases.
Carrington is a member of the American Bar Association, Capital Area Bar Association, The Mississippi Bar, Jackson Young Lawyers, the Mississippi Defense Lawyers Association, the Mississippi Women Lawyers Association, the Defense Research Institute (“DRI’), and the Charles Clark Chapter of the American Inns of Court. She has spoken at multiple DRI Product Liability seminars and served in leadership positions for various subcommittees.
