Pro Bono Partnerships

Dykema welcomes pro bono partnerships with its business clients. Dykema creates pro bono partnerships with a focus on identifying relevant, succinct and high-profile opportunities. In 2016, we paired with clients to provide access to polling stations. More recently, as the national economy plummeted, we conceptualized a Crisis Clinic for Detroit-Based Nonprofits, where private attorneys meet with nonprofits to respond or resolve their crises. This initiative was later implemented into a partnership between Dykema, Community Legal Resources and Ford Motor Company Office of the General Counsel. In 2007, the GM Legal Department and Dykema lawyers performed legal audits for fledgling nonprofits in Detroit. Later in 2008, under Ms. Naasko's leadership, the Firm launched a second partnership between Dykema, GM, Children's Hospital of Michigan and Legal Aid and Defender Association to provide child patients and their families legal assistance in the areas of landlord/tenant and appeals for Supplemental Social Security Income.

If you are interested in partnering with Dykema, we invite you to contact Charles LeMoine, Chair of Dykema's Pro Bono Committee, or Heidi Naasko, Pro Bono Counsel.
