Mayer Brown is pleased to announce that the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation (CAASE) has presented the firm with the organization’s Pro Bono Superstar Award. The award honors CAASE’s pro bono partners who have provided exceptional representation to survivors of sexual exploitation and violence.

Mayer Brown pro bono advisor Marc Kadish accepted the award on behalf of the firm at CAASE’s award ceremony on September 6, 2018. Mayer Brown lawyers George Haines and Lisa Holl-Chang were honored for their work in representing survivors of sex trafficking in vacating prostitution convictions through the Justice for Victims of Sex Trafficking Crimes Act and, in one particular representation, setting precedent by vacating convictions obtained long after a survivor left the trafficker.
