About Lawyers Alliance

Since 1969, Lawyers Alliance for New York has led the way, locally and nationally, for effective pro bono legal services by business and transactional lawyers. Today, our staff of experienced attorneys and network of more than 2,000 pro bono lawyers from law firms and corporate legal departments deliver expert corporate, tax, real estate, employment, intellectual property, and other legal and educational services to more than 1,000 community organizations each year.

We are now at the forefront of providing legal assistance and information to community-based and other resource-constrained nonprofits affected by and/or responding to the impact of COVID-19.

Our Business Law & Leadership Gala is an opportunity to reaffirm the legal sector’s commitment to community service. With your participation, Lawyers Alliance continues to strengthen nonprofits that develop and provide housing, stimulate economic opportunity, improve urban health and education, promote community arts, and operate and advocate for vital programs that benefit low-income New Yorkers of all ages.
