YLS Board Member Spotlight: Ben Rafte
Ben Rafte practices Business and Real Estate Litigation, General Corporate Law, and Commercial Real Estate Transactions at Isaacson Sheridan here in Greensboro. Ben’s favorite part about his job is the people he gets to work with. When asked why he chose to be a YLS board member, he stated: “I really enjoyed the YLS events that I attended and I wanted to become more involved in the group. I am also involved in the real property section, the mentorship program, and of course the YLS kickball team.”
