For its Pro Bono Spotlight, Law360 recently wrote about Labaton Sucharow's pro bono immigration team, detailing two cases in which the team secured asylum grants in October. With backgrounds in securities and antitrust litigation law, it was the first time these attorneys had represented immigrants.
Antitrust and Competition Litigation Practice Co-Chair Greg Asciolla, who led one of our pro bono teams, highlighted the importance of immigrant aid organizations in providing counsel throughout the process. "Inmmigrants are facing increasingly difficult obstacles, and our role is very important for due process. The resources are out there for you to zealously advocate on behalf of detainees. While you may not have direct immigration experience, you can get over the learning curve quickly."
