Lockridge Grindal Nauen’s 40440 initiative is halfway to its goal of completing 40 acts of service in honor of its 40th year in business.

From volunteer hours for local community organizations to donations to area non-profits, LGN attorneys, government relations professionals, and staff have completed over 20 acts of service so far.

Thank you again to all of the LGN attorneys and staff who helped with these projects and to the area non-profits who have partnered with us to kick off this initiative. If you have a suggestion for a service project or work with a local non-profit that is interesting in partnering with LGN, please don’t hesitate to contact us at mailto:info@locklaw.com.

Here are just a few examples of the projects that have been completed over the past several months:
