Lawyers Who Lead By Example
The National Law Journal named New York litigation partner J. Alexander Lawrence to its 2015 Pro Bono Hot List for his efforts to ensure that women in Texas continue to have access to abortion services. He led a MoFo team that, along with the Center for Reproductive Rights, challenged the constitutionality of a Texas law that placed restrictions on abortion clinic operations. “We could not have achieved success in this case of great importance without the amazing efforts of Alex and his team,” said Stephanie Toti, senior counsel at the Center for Reproductive Rights.

The National Law Journal named Morrison & Foerster to its 2017 Pro Bono Hot List, recognizing the firm for its June 2016 Supreme Court victory in the most important abortion rights case of a generation, Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt. The Journal singled out New York litigation partner Alex Lawrence, who served as co-lead counsel on the Whole Woman's Health case throughout the litigation.
The Hot List represents the National Law Journal's choices for the year’s most significant victories achieved by law firms acting "pro bono publico" - for the public good.
