Fredrikson & Byron Launches Pro Bono Rapid Response Program to Aid Rebuilding and Recovery

June 9, 2020

For more than four decades, Fredrikson & Byron has served the needs of our vibrant and diverse communities of color by offering pro bono legal assistance to a significant number of individuals, businesses and organizations. During these unprecedented and challenging times of hardship and grief suffered by our small business communities, Fredrikson continues to be steadfastly committed to providing free legal services to these vital businesses that were so greatly impacted by recent events.

“Fredrikson & Byron is a community of dedicated and compassionate lawyers and staff who contribute in concrete ways to assist those in need,” said Fredrikson president John Koneck. “We stand together with our neighbors to help and serve in the communities where we live and work.”

Fredrikson has launched a Rapid Response Program and will work through its pro bono partners, including the Neighborhood Development Center, Meda, Lake Street Council, the Northside Economic Opportunity Network and others, to provide services to their clients as they assess the damage to their facilities and work to rebuild their communities.

The program has a dedicated call-in line and online intake form that aim to help business owners efficiently file a request for assistance. Impacted businesses may call 612.492.8078 and leave a message in English or Spanish to request legal assistance, fill out the form or email the team directly at legalhelp@fredlaw.com. Business owners will receive a return call or email within 24 hours to conduct a full intake. Fredrikson will also set up a physical intake desk at the Midtown Global Market. More information will soon be available on its website.
