Cedric Powell Named a 2021 MCCA Rising Star
Sheppard Mullin special counsel Cedric Powell has been named a 2021 Rising Star by the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA). All 20 MCCA Rising Stars will be honored at its 2021 Creating Pathways to Diversity Virtual Conference on October 12.
The annual list honors stellar attorneys whose accomplishments and dedication to the legal profession and to their community place them among those “attorneys to watch”. Their backgrounds are as diverse as their practice areas, but what these Rising Stars have in common is their love of law and pursuit of excellence, while possessing a compassion for those in need and a strong desire to give back to others.
Resident in Sheppard Mullin’s Washington, D.C. office, Powell represents private and public companies, investment banks and private equity firms in corporate and transactional matters, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and securities offerings. Over the span of his career, Powell has completed dozens of corporate transactions and developed extensive expertise in acquisition transactions on behalf of private equity firms and other buy-out sponsors, as well as domestic and international firms in the aerospace, defense, technology, manufacturing, automotive and healthcare industries.
