Pro Bono Work

One example of the firm’s pro bono efforts that we are especially proud of is our service for over a decade as counsel to Turnaround for Children, Inc. We have assisted with real estate, employment, and general corporate matters. For all these years, one of our partners has served on the Board and numerous Board committees, and the firm has given additional financial support to this worthwhile non-profit that is succeeding in a big way in making progress on a great current societal challenge. “Turnaround strives to fulfill the promise of public education by helping high-poverty, low-performing public schools create positive learning environments that foster healthy intellectual, social, and emotional growth in every student.”

­Other examples are the intellectual property and other advice our lawyers have provided to the following non-profit organizations:

  • Community Healing Network, a nonprofit organization “working to spark the creation of a national and international grassroots network of self-help groups focused on emotional emancipation, healing, and wellness for Black people.”

  • Independent Diplomat, a non-profit group that “provides confidential advice and practical assistance in diplomatic strategy and technique to governments, political groups, international organizations and NGOs” that may lack the resources to be effectively heard without that assistance.

  • The Gerald Arpino and Robert Joffrey Foundation, which owns the choreographic works of Gerald Arpino and Robert Joffrey and “is committed to maintaining their legacy by licensing their works, educating dancers and students, and encouraging the talents of young choreographers.”
