Pro Bono Partnership’s 2019 Gala marked the organization’s 22nd anniversary of providing free legal services to nonprofits in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York.

We were pleased to honor the Mastercard Law, Franchise & Integrity department and
Samir A. Gandhi, Managing Partner New York office, Sidley Austin LLP as Pro Bono Champions at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.

Watch what Tim Murphy, Mastercard General Counsel, and others on his team had to say about transactional pro bono work for nonprofits and the essential role the Partnership has in making it possible in this video.

Samir Gandhi discusses the importance of pro bono work and the value the Partnership brings to firms like Sidley in this video.
