Pillsbury was featured in the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area’s (LCCRSF) pro bono spotlight on the firm’s current pro bono advances across LCCRSF’s Racial, Economic and Immigrant justice programs — stepping up leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter movement. Pillsbury San Francisco-based partners Thomas Loran, Jacob Sorensen and associate Nan McGarry we're quoted in the piece. See the full story here.
“As a young lawyer, my first big responsibility in cases were Lawyers’ Committee cases,” said Sorensen, who is also a current Board Member of LCCRSF. “It’s a rite of passage at Pillsbury to work on these cases. It’s so important and valuable to our younger lawyers as they think about how they want to fit into the legal community and their place in the world. A big part is doing good for society and using the power we have to effectuate change. LCCRSF gives us tremendous opportunity to do that.”
“In 2020, the work’s more important than ever, and our long history of partnership gives people the perfect opportunity to get involved in an issue that so many are rightfully concerned about,” Sorensen said. “For people who want to get involved, get involved.”
