New York partner Austin Ozawa received a Cornerstone Award from Lawyers Alliance in recognition of his commitment to providing pro bono counsel to New York-area nonprofits.
For more than a decade, he has worked with such organizations as Girls, Inc. of New York City, the local chapter of the national organization Girls Incorporated, which inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold through research-based informal education programs; Community Voices Heard, a member-led, multi-racial organization that works to build power to secure racial, social, and economic justice for all New Yorkers; Neighborhood SHOPP, a multi-service agency serving Hispanic, African-American, West Indian-Caribbean, and other older residents in the Bronx; and Nonprofit New York, which works to build and inspire a powerful nonprofit community.
The Cornerstone Awards recognize outstanding pro bono legal services to nonprofit groups that are improving the quality of life for low-income New Yorkers. Each year, Lawyers Alliance for New York honors exceptional volunteerism by business and transactional lawyers with both institutional and individual Cornerstone Awards.
As a partner in the Tax Department, Ozawa focuses on executive compensation and employee benefits matters for both public and private companies and financial institutions.
