Giving back to our communities is central to our identity and culture at Michael Best. Our firm and our people proudly support a huge range of local, regional, and national organizations through sponsorships, committee participation, volunteerism, board memberships, and other means, including the pro bono time we regularly donate.
Because there is always a way to do more, we developed a program to help connect our employees with community service opportunities and encourage their participation. Through this “Best Efforts” program, our lawyers and staff are personally engaged in dozens of events and causes every year. We collect donations for food banks, help provide lunches to underprivileged kids, organize clothing drives for the homeless, raise money for veterans, and much more.
