Lane Powell was featured in a February 16 Puget Sound Business Journal article titled “Puget Sound Region’s Largest Law Firms Fight for LGBTQ and Immigration Rights.” The article includes a quote from Pro Bono Co-Chair Claire Loebs Davis, describing the firm’s pro bono work in immigration rights, particularly in the case of President Trump’s travel ban.
Lane Powell […] was at the forefront of the effort to block President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban.
Claire Davis, pro bono co-chair at Lane Powell, said the effort continued for weeks, coordinating resources for volunteer attorneys and coordinating responses taking place in international airports across the U.S.
"After the rush of the initial response, the Lane Powell team took the lead in organizing the citywide effort, coordinating resources from other major Seattle firms, and working closely with NWIRP, the ACLU and the American Immigration Lawyers Association," she said in a questionnaire about the firm's pro bono work.
The firm organized and coordinated more than 100 attorneys, paralegals and law students from across the city and scheduled them for shifts at the airport to ensure that the right resources were available around the clock to assist travelers affected by the ban.
