Reed Smith Legal Services
Riverside Center For Innovation has partnered with Reed Smith LLP, a global law firm with over 1,800 lawyers in 26 offices, to provide pro bono legal representation to select community based businesses since 2013.
Our members sign an attorney/client engagement letter that outlines the scope of legal services that are provided and Reed Smith’s standard engagement limitations that it has with any pro bono client.
In order to comply with our reed smith firm-wide pro bono policy, the businesses referred to us must comply with each of the following three criteria:
The business is owned or operated by low-income individual(s);
Neither the entity nor its equity owners could otherwise afford legal services
The business will primarily serve low income customers or will operate in an economically disadvantaged area.
