New York, NY (PRWEB) May 06, 2015
Clutch Group, an organization dedicated to helping companies tackle complex legal, risk and compliance issues, is proud to announce it sponsored the Urban Justice Center (UJC) at the 2015 Community Justice Awards on May 5 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. This year, the UJC honored David M. Levine, Head of Litigation and Regulatory Enforcement for the Americas at Deutsche Bank.
The Urban Justice Center serves New York City’s most vulnerable residents through a combination of direct legal advice, systemic advocacy, community education, and political organizing. The organization assists its clients by holding one-on-one legal advice sessions in soup kitchens, helping individuals access housing and government assistance, and filing class action lawsuits to bring about systemic change.
The Annual Community Justice Awards seek to honor the UJC’s strongest supporters and staunchest allies. David Levine was honored as a Community Leader for his recent work on a Pro Bono case with the Veteran Advocacy Project at the Center.
Varun Mehta, Vice President of Legal & Compliance Solutions at Clutch Group, served as a Vice-Chair and Benefactor of the event. “We’re extremely honored to have the opportunity to support one of our peers at an event like this,” he said. “Giving back to the communities in which we are located is important to Clutch Group. We’re excited to partner with the UJC to provide opportunities for New Yorkers in need of legal and educational advocacy.”
"We're grateful to our friends at Clutch Group for their sponsorship of the Community Justice Awards Gala,” said Doug Lasdon, Executive Director and Founder of the Urban Justice Center. “For the past decade, Clutch Group has provided valuable legal assistance to countless organizations, and they continue to be a force for progress on both a global and local scale. The Urban Justice Center is proud to stand with them in helping our communities thrive.”
