Firms help small businesses struggling through pandemic
– Daily Journal

Partner and Director of Pro Bono Sirena Castillo spoke with Daily Journal about Manatt's recent pro bono efforts, which include virtual clinics that engage partners, associates and consultants in the Firm’s 10 offices nationwide. She highlighted the Firm's dedication to working with small businesses, especially ones that are minority- and women-owned.

In the article, Castillo detailed the Firm’s recent two-part clinic with nonprofit Start Small Think Big, during which associates met with various clients and drafted new/reviewed existing contracts. “…these clinics allow associates to really take the full driving push,” she said. “It's a great developmental opportunity for associates, who are fully in charge of client engagement, the first draft and determining where additional resources are needed.”
