State Bar of Georgia Honors Troutman Sanders with Pro Bono Award


ATLANTA – Troutman Sanders LLP has received the State Bar of Georgia’s “A Business Commitment Award” for its pro bono efforts over the past year. Rachel Spears, executive director of Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta, nominated the firm for the award.

"Nearly 50 Troutman Sanders attorneys have volunteered on 67 different pro bono projects for non-profit clients, through Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta, since January 2016, showing the firm's deep commitment to pro bono work,” Spears said.

The “A Business Commitment Award” is presented by the State Bar of Georgia Pro Bono Resource Center to honor the business law pro bono contributions of an individual lawyer, corporate legal department or law firm to the non-profit community and community economic development sector in Georgia.

“Troutman Sanders is honored to receive the ‘A Business Commitment Award’ from the State Bar of Georgia and is humbled by the nomination from Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta,” said Partner Rori Cassirer, who chairs the firm’s Pro Bono Committee. “We are proud to serve our local communities through staff and attorney involvement in local, regional and national non-profits.”

The award was announced at a November 15 awards reception hosted by the State Bar of Georgia.
