Mayer Brown Wins Reinstatement Of Foundation's Charitable Status

5 September 2007
Under the guidance of Paul DiSangro and Shirish Gupta of the Palo Alto office, Mayer Brown has successfully convinced the IRS to reinstate the South Asian Bar Association of Northern California Foundation's status as a public charity, rather than as a private foundation.  The process took over a year and included several submissions and conference calls with the IRS.  The Association's status as a public charity will allow it to continue funding public interest and judicial extern fellowships for deserving law students.  Just this past summer, the Foundation awarded 3 fellowships to students working at the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, the National Legal Sanctuary and the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, Magistrate Judge Edward Chen.
