The African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey announced on March 3 a new partnership with Gibbons law firm to provide certain pro bono legal services to AACCNJ members with annual revenues of $500,000 or less.
The AACCNJ Pro Bono Alliance was created “to provide additional opportunities to assist minority- and women-owned business enterprises and directly support certain AACCNJ member companies,” the announcement stated.
“Having professional legal services to assist small businesses with potential growth opportunities and to mitigate potential risk could substantially contribute to their growth and sustainability,” John Harmon Sr., founder, president and CEO of the AACCNJ, said in a statement.
Through the alliance, Gibbons’ attorneys will volunteer their time and talent to provide necessary legal counsel and advice for these small businesses to launch, sustain, calibrate or advance their operations.
Gibbons’ services will include employment law, real estate, general corporate advice, intellectual property and cybersecurity.
