Corporate Leadership Circle
The CBF Corporate Leadership Circle and its accompanying statement of principles underscore the critical role that corporations and their legal departments play in ensuring equal access to justice in the Chicago area. To that end, the Leadership Circle, currently chaired by Verónica Gómez of Exelon Corporation and Steve Fus of United Airlines, Inc., is intended to embody best practices for corporate legal departments on pro bono, giving and related issues. The Statement of Principles underscores both the integral role that corporate counsel have in ensuring equal access to the justice system and the critical importance of solid leadership from our region’s corporate law departments in this cause.
A number of corporations have signed on to the CBF Corporate Leadership Circle, making commitments to contribute their time, money and in-kind resources as well as to strategically use their influence in the community to advance this cause.
