The American Lawyer has named Morrison Foerster as the winner in the competitive Corporate Purpose Award category for its annual Industry Awards. The award honors an organization that has defined and executed on an initiative or overall mission that supports the well-being and welfare of its members or other stakeholders.
Morrison Foerster was given the award in recognition of the firm’s post-Dobbs response. Since the June 2022 decision, MoFo lawyers have been involved in a series of precedent-setting reproductive rights cases across the United States. MoFo’s Privacy + Data Security team quickly issued MoFo Privacy Tips for Protecting Reproductive Rights, offering guidance for individuals, reproductive healthcare providers, and technology companies to safeguard personal health information. MoFo also worked to form the Abortion Defense Network, which brought together top law firms and reproductive rights organizations to create a nationwide resource for abortion-related confidential legal advice. Across MoFo, our lawyers have dedicated 3,000 hours to post-Dobbs advocacy.
The American Lawyer also named MoFo’s David Cross as a finalist in the Attorney of the Year category, Carrie H. Cohen as a finalist in the Best Mentor: Law Firm category, and former partner Alex Iftimie was named a finalist in the Young Lawyer of the Year—Litigation category.
