Law360 featured MoFo in an article about the firm’s mental health charter, emphasizing a commitment to mental health and reducing the factors that can contribute to it.

According to Brad Wine, a member of MoFo’s mental health steering committee, part of ensuring that attorneys are mentally healthy is making certain that any deal or case is properly staffed, so that those working on it are not pushed past their limits.
