Barclay Damon to update LeGal’s corporate bylaws and bylaws of its affiliated foundation
POSTED SEPTEMBER 30, 2021
Thanks to an introduction by Janice Grubin, Ray McCabe and Bridget Steele of Barclay Damon LLP have been retained by the LGBT Bar Association of Greater New York (LeGaL) to review and update its corporate bylaws and the bylaws of its affiliated foundation, as well as to advise on related corporate governance issues. The firm was able to leverage its Upstate New York platform and rate structure to provide a “lo bono” bid to LeGaL that beat out a bid from a major downstate firm prominent in representing not-for-profits. While securing fees comparable to standard upstate rates, the engagement allows the firm to assist a leader in LGBTQ+ advocacy whose impact on the LGBTQ+ community, judicial, and legislative circles and beyond far exceeds the size of its almost 500-member organization.
