LOS ANGELES - Shaub & Williams has concluded its third year of providing pro bono supervisory advice to law students in the International Transactions Clinic of the University of Michigan Law School, according to David Shaub, the firm's managing partner and a graduate of the law school. During the last three years, Mr. Shaub, together with associates Cassandra Lamb and Katya Mezek, have participated in weekly guidance with the students in cooperation with their professors. The clinic works with the attorneys to gain experience in real world business transactions, which include a component that fosters social betterment. The students work in groups that undertake specific tasks during the school year for Shaub & Williams' clients, without charge. The firm also provides its consultation without charge.
The clinic has drafted green product importation and distribution agreements for the firm's architectural sustainable design client offices in China, analyses regarding tax, carbon and other marketing credits for a green tech firm planning to do business in India, and a lab agreement for a client that has a proprietary technology for converting contaminants in water into energy, which it intends to implement in several foreign jurisdictions.
The firm looks forward to continuing this relationship with the law school and its clients in the upcoming 2012-2013 school year.
