Lawyers Alliance Honors Alison King for Charter School Work

November 11, 2008

Alison King, Counsel in the Corporate & Finance Department and Co-Chair of the firm's Pro Bono Committee, received a Lawyers Alliance for New York Cornerstone Award on November 10, 2008, which honors attorneys who have rendered exceptional pro bono legal services to nonprofit organizations.

Ms. King was recognized for her leadership of Kaye Scholer's partnership with Lawyers Alliance and Pfizer Inc. to provide legal advice to New York City charter schools. This initiative has included a Charter School Legal Assessment Day (held at Pfizer in March 2008), periodic training sessions and direct representation of charter schools.

Ms. King recruited Kaye Scholer attorneys for the partnership; conducted an attorney training on the regulations governing NYC charter schools; taught a session on corporate governance for representatives from 16 charter schools on Assessment Day; and has advised four schools that were referred to the firm as pro bono clients as a result of the partnership.
