LOS ANGELES — The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) has selected O’Melveny & Myers to be its first national sponsor. As a national sponsor, the firm will represent MALDEF on a regular basis in cases throughout the country, not just ad hoc. O’Melveny will handle cases at the appellate and trial levels, and in legislative actions involving voting rights, immigration, employment, education and other areas. “When the opportunity arises, we will be looking to O’Melveny, and O’Melveny will be ready to go,” said John Trasvi�a, president and general counsel of MALDEF. O’Melveny is no stranger to MALDEF. In 2006, the firm represented MALDEF in a legal challenge to a redistricting plan in Texas that ended up before the U.S. Supreme Court. Trasvi�a said MALDEF would name other national sponsors in the near future. MALDEF, based in Los Angeles, promotes the rights of Latinos in litigation and advocacy.
