Faegre Drinker is proud to have been named the recipient of the Inaugural Law Firm Founders’ Award from the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota (ILCM) for the firm’s longstanding commitment to ILCM’s mission and clients.
The Founders’ Awards were created in honor of ILCM’s 25th anniversary and will continue to be given out in milestone anniversary years. Faegre Drinker was recognized for its dedicated pro bono volunteers, who partnered with the organization to develop its pro bono program and assisted numerous clients.
ILCM is a nonprofit agency that provides immigration legal assistance to low-income immigrants and refugees in Minnesota. ILCM also works to educate Minnesota communities and professionals about immigration matters and advocates for state and federal policies that respect the universal human rights of immigrants.
Pro bono is a core value of Faegre Drinker’s and is part of what we do every day. Our firm has a long history of fighting for the causes that are important to our communities, including for those who are immigrants and new Americans. For 25 years, our firm has proudly supported ILCM by providing pro bono service to hundreds of clients referred by ILCM, helping our clients seek immigration status, become citizens and keep their families together.
