Labaton Sucharow LLP is pleased to announce that partner Christopher J. Keller was recently elected to serve on the board of the New York City Bar Association’s nonprofit arm, The City Bar Fund.
Founded in 1946, The City Bar Fund aims to engage and support the legal profession in advancing social justice. The City Bar Fund operates four programs, the City Bar Justice Center, the Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice, the Office for Diversity and Inclusion, and the Lawyer Assistance Program. These work to:
- Expand access to justice for the underserved in New York City—immigrants, the homeless, victims of domestic violence and other vulnerable groups;
- Advance global justice by engaging lawyers across borders to support civil society;
- Promote diversity and inclusion in the profession by assisting law firms and corporations in adopting best practices;
- Provide professional experience, development and educational programs for inner-city students interested in pursuing legal careers; and
- Provide mental health services and substance abuse counseling to New York City legal professionals.
In addition to his securities litigation work on behalf of institutional investors, Keller holds several leadership positions within the Firm, which include serving on the Firm's Executive Committee and leading the Firm’s Case Development Group—which evaluates clients' financial losses, analyzes potential legal claims, and tracks trends that may be of concern to investors.
