NY Labor & Employment partner Rob Whitman received the 2008 Award for Pro Bono Leadership from Lawyers Alliance for New York ("Lawyers Alliance"), in recognition of his 11 years of outstanding service as a volunteer attorney. Lawyers Alliance provides business and transactional legal services for New York City nonprofit organizations and is a leading pro bono referral agency for the NY office.
"This award highlights Lawyers Alliance's philosophy that pro bono work is not just for junior associates," says Rob.
Rob has provided pro bono employment counseling to numerous nonprofit organizations referred by Lawyers Alliance. He was also one of the first attorneys to join Lawyers Alliance’s Nonprofit Employment Law Helpline panel. Rob also received a Cornerstone Award from Lawyers Alliance in 2006.
