PBI Signatory Showcase Featuring Archer-Daniels-Midland (ADM) Company and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP

September 21, 2023

ADM and Skadden formed a partnership in 2019 to create a series of pro bono days of service that would engage their lawyers and legal staff in meaningful pro bono work. Since then, they have provided pro bono legal assistance to an array of clients – and over the years the partnership has averaged in assisting 12 to 40 individuals during each clinic. ADM and Skadden have worked most recently with the National Immigrant Justice Center to assist immigrants who had obtained asylee or refugee status in filing their green card applications. 

For our latest Signatory Showcase podcast we spoke with Cindy Ervin, Associate General Counsel for Real Estate and M&A at Archer-Daniels-Midland Company, and Gretchen Wolf, Litigation Partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.

PBI Signatory Showcase Featuring
Milbank LLP

July 19, 2023

In a pro bono case Milbank represented All Muslim Association of America (AMAA), a non-profit that provides low-cost burial and funeral services to Muslims in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, against a county in Virginia that created an ordinance that specifically made it impossible for AMAA to put a cemetery on their property. Milbank prevailed, resulting in the county rolling back that provision and awarding the client a large settlement in damages.

We spoke with Milbank LLP Special Counsel, Melanie Westover Yanez, for this special edition of the Pro Bono Happy Hour Podcast.
