We are very proud of our long-standing affiliation with the Lupus Foundation, and of the work that many members of the GT family have put in to help with this great cause,” Rosenbaum said. “We are committed to LFA and its work because we know, firsthand, that lupus is one of the world’s cruelest, most unpredictable and devastating diseases, and the Lupus Foundation of America is the only national force devoted to solving the mystery that is lupus. We want to see a world free of lupus.” Greenberg Traurig New York's Co-Managing Shareholder Stephen L. Rabinowitz is on the LFA board.
