Chief Legal and Government Affairs Officer, Molson Coors Brewing Company

Lee Reichert joined Molson Coors in 2011 as General Counsel of Molson Coors International and took on his current role in 2018. He was previously Partner at Lathrop & Gage LLP, where he served on the firm's Executive Committee. Lee is also a former Board Member of the Center for Legal Inclusiveness. 

In 2014, Lee reported that more than two-thirds of the company’s global legal department was made up of women and minorities: “To delight the world’s beer drinkers, we need a diverse set of employees.”

The Molson Coors legal department also wants to see the diversity of outside counsel improve; the company works with firms to review their diversity metrics, uses “creative billing arrangements” for diverse associates, and has a program that helps diverse young attorneys work on their pitching skills.
