I appreciate the opportunity to leverage my corporate experience with large clients to assist our pro bono clients, who face similar issues on a different scale. Pro bono work is a great responsibility and a true honor and GT is committed to providing pro bono clients with the same high-quality counsel that we provide to all clients,” Gerasimovich said.
