Jessica Mendez, a lawyer at Armstrong Teasdale LLP, has been selected to attend the Latino Leadership Institute, which was created last year by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (HCC) St. Louis Foundation. The institute is sponsored by Centene Corporation.

A member of the firm’s Intellectual Property Litigation group, Mendez represents clients in disputes involving infringement of patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets pending in state, federal and appellate courts throughout the United States. She received her LL.M. in intellectual property and J.D. from Washington University School of Law and B.A., political science and English, cum laude, from Boston University.

The Latino Leadership Institute is a skills-based program aimed at training a select group of young Hispanic professionals on for-profit and non-profit management skills and network development within the St. Louis business community. In addition to leadership training, participants are encouraged to give back to the St. Louis region through community involvement.

The HCC St. Louis Foundation was created in 2009 to accomplish charitable purposes, focusing on the Hispanic community of the metro St. Louis area. The Foundation's three primary areas of concern are workforce development, youth and education.
