Boston Bar Association Welcomes Schwartz Hannum as Sponsor Firm

Emphasizing the importance of building mutually beneficial relationships with law firms of all sizes in the Greater Boston community, Boston Bar Association President Lisa C. Goodheart today welcomed Schwartz Hannum PC, a labor and employment firm that represents businesses and non-profit organizations, to its growing list of sponsor firms .

"The Boston Bar Association is thrilled to have this leading law firm join our ranks," said President Goodheart. "We are delighted that Schwartz Hannum, in choosing to become a sponsor firm, has demonstrated its support of BBA's mission of advancing professional excellence, access to justice, and service to the community."

Schwartz Hannum, a 12 attorney firm celebrating its 16th year, has built its reputation on outstanding client service and a comprehensive client education series. No stranger to the BBA, the firm's lawyers have participated in the BBA's Labor & Employment Section, Solo & Small Firm Section, Diversity & Inclusion Section and Group Mentoring Program.

"Both the BBA and Schwartz Hannum are demonstrably committed to excellence," said President and Managing Partner Sara Goldsmith Schwartz, who founded the firm in 1995. "I have seen our core values represented at the BBA in the programming, section activity, continuing legal education programs, its weekly newsletter and every time I enter the building. The obvious next step for Schwartz Hannum was to formalize our support of the BBA with a sponsorship."

The Boston Bar Association is a non-profit, voluntary membership organization of 11,000 attorneys drawn from private practice, corporations, government agencies, legal aid organizations, the courts, and law schools. It traces its origins to meetings convened by John Adams, the lawyer who provided pro bono representation to the British soldiers prosecuted for the Boston Massacre and went on to become the second president of the United States.
