Cahill Pro Bono for the Arts
Partner Advisor: Brockton B. Bosson
In recognition of the vital importance fine arts and cultural institutions play in our society, Cahill attorneys provide pro bono representation for several leading arts and cultural institutions in New York City.
Through Cahill’s long-standing partnership with Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Cahill attorneys provide pro bono legal assistance on a wide range of matters involving compliance advisory, contracts, and litigation matters. Also, each summer, several Summer Associates, under the supervision of Cahill attorneys, engage in pro bono legal projects to support Lincoln Center. Cahill’s work in helping Lincoln Center enhance its FCPA compliance program was featured on Law360.
In 2021, Cahill provided time-sensitive legal advice in support of efforts to evacuate students and faculty of the Afghanistan National Institute of Music (ANIM) from Afghanistan, including the students who are members of Zohra, ANIM’s renowned all-female orchestra. More than 270 members of the ANIM community were evacuated from Afghanistan for resettlement in Portugal via Qatar as reported by The New York Times.
Cahill's contributions as a trusted legal advisor to Lincoln Center have been immeasurable. Their advice draws from a deep well of legal knowledge concerning internal audit, compensation, and good governance in the context of the nonprofit sector.
