The Boston office of Morgan,
Lewis & Bockius LLP, an international law firm with more than 1,600
legal professionals, has signed on as a sponsor firm of the Boston Bar Association. The firm's Boston
office has 28 lawyers representing its Business and Finance, Insurance Recovery,
Labor and Employment, and Litigation practices. With 25 offices across the
United States, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, Morgan Lewis provides
transactional, litigation, labor and employment, regulatory, and intellectual
property legal services to clients of all sizes across all major industries.
"Becoming a sponsor firm of the Boston Bar Association will allow us to
participate in the BBA's ongoing work to serve the Greater Boston community,"
said Jonathan Bernstein, managing partner of Morgan Lewis's Boston office. "Our
attorneys support the BBA's mission and look forward to enjoying the diverse
programming that the BBA offers."
Founded in 1873 in Philadelphia, Morgan
Lewis has expanded its reach far beyond Pennsylvania to establish sixteen offices
throughout the United States – including their Boston office in 2003 – and nine
international offices. Morgan Lewis is "known for their ability to handle suits
with very high stakes," according to a report
by BTI Consulting Group, and was named to the Client Service Hall of Fame by the
same group – one of only three law firms in the U.S. to receive this honor.
About 75 percent of Morgan Lewis attorneys who practice out of the
Boston office are engaged with the firm's pro bono program; as a group, these
lawyers logged in more than 350 pro bono hours over the past year. The office
has actively participated in the firm's Pro Bono & Community Service Week,
celebrated in June, and pursues new community service opportunities each year.
Three of the partners in the Boston office serve on the boards of five different
local nonprofit organizations that address a range of issues within the
