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.

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.

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 ...
