Stinson Joins Building For Good's Network of Firms Providing Pro Bono Construction Counsel
The newly formed nonprofit will pair construction attorneys with nonprofits and charities in need of pro bono services.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (October 23, 2019)—Stinson LLP is excited to announce that the firm’s Construction practice has recently joined Building For Good (B4G), a network of law firms connecting construction attorneys with organizations in need of pro bono construction counsel.
B4G is a national initiative of the American Bar Association Forum on Construction Law, with pilot projects currently underway in Florida, Massachusetts, Minnesota and New Jersey with plans to expand further in 2020. It was developed by the ABA after members recognized the need for nonprofits with limited resources to access pro bono legal services for construction projects.
“We noticed there was no easy way for volunteer lawyers to find nonprofit organizations in need of construction law help. B4G will help to bridge that gap,” said Boston construction attorney William M. Hill, founder and chair of B4G.
By connecting construction attorneys with nonprofits and charities in need, B4G is able to help provide assistance with transactional work, design and construction contract negotiation, project risk management and dispute resolution.
“We’re excited to connect with organizations in need through B4G and to apply our industry knowledge in a meaningful new way,” said Steve Lindemann, chair of the Construction practice at Stinson. “Through this platform, we’re able to help nonprofits that don't normally do construction projects to expand and maintain their facilities without worrying about how to navigate what can seem like a legal minefield.”
