Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz tapped Lisa W. Borden as its first pro bono shareholder as part of an expansion of its pro bono program. In her new role, Borden will coordinate the firm’s pro bono efforts for attorneys in the firm’s 17 offices in the southeastern U.S. and in Washington. Borden, an employment lawyer and litigator, has led the firm’s pro bono initiatives in its Birmingham, Ala., office since 2005. “My new role as pro bono shareholder will allow me to devote my efforts to implementing a formal pro bono program that will more effectively marshal the firm’s national resources to provide legal representation to those who can’t afford it,” Borden said. “I’m very fortunate to have the opportunity to do this, and to be working with some of the most talented attorneys in the country to make it happen.” One of the firm’s goals is for every Baker Donelson attorney to perform at least 20 to 50 hours of pro bono work each year, Borden said.
