Appels Pro Bono

Pro bono is part of our DNA. The founding president of the Brennan Center for Justice began our group, and many of our lawyers devoted their careers to public service before joining us. The result is a practice in which we encourage our lawyers to devote themselves to the causes that matter to them, supported by the resources that a large law firm can provide. Those causes take numerous forms. We work with the National Veterans Legal Services Program to represent deserving veterans who have been deprived of the benefits they earned. We have teamed up with the New York Office of the Appellate ...

Financement des obligations relatives aux prestations de retraite

History That financing and a number of copy-cats that rapidly followed were tax-exempt and primarily driven by then legal arbitrage possibilities. Many of these transactions were structured as lease financings or as installment sales of annuities. Tax-exempt pension obligation bonds largely came to an end with the introduction of tax legislation that became part of the Tax Reform Act of 1986. However, we have continued to work on pension bonds that are tax-exempt because of special transition rules or special (non-arbitrage) situations. A new taxable version of pension obligation bonds ...

by Patricia E. Anglin, William Berry and Yvonne Nyborg | March.27.2020

Employee Benefit Provisions in The Cares Act To confront the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress passed the CORNAVIRUS AID, RELIEF, AND ECONOMIC SECURITY ACT (CARES ACT) on March 27, 2020.
