Pierce & Mandell, P.C was a proud sponsor of the Massachusetts Bar Foundation’s 50th Anniversary Gala, held on October 23, 2014 at the Colonnade Hotel in Boston. The Massachusetts Bar Foundation (MBF), the philanthropic partner of the Massachusetts Bar Association, supports projects that offer civil legal services to people who cannot afford them, and improve the administration of justice in the Commonwealth. In 2014, the MBF awarded approximately Two Million Dollars through its annual Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts (IOLTA) Grants Program to 82 programs conducted by 56 nonprofit organizations throughout Massachusetts. Brockton-native Ken Feinberg was the guest of honor at the Gala, receiving the MBF’s Great Friend of Justice Award for the vitally important work he has done administering large settlement funds like the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund and One Fund Boston. Pierce & Mandell, P.C.’s sponsorship of the Gala continues our long tradition of active involvement in the MBF, including the work currently done by Pierce & Mandell shareholder and current MBF Trustee, Dennis M. Lindgren.
