The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice Presents Nutter’s Andrew McArdell with Pro Bono AwardPrint PDF
The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice (LCCR) has presented Andrew McArdell, an associate in Nutter’s Litigation Department, with a pro bono award in recognition of his commitment to public service at its recent 48th anniversary reception.
“Andrew represented a homeless African-American student whose school was suspending him contrary to Massachusetts law. To keep his client on a positive track toward graduation and ensure the school was following the new law, Andrew successfully brokered a meeting with school and district officials and arranged a plan to support his client and improve communication between his school and family,” said Iván Espinoza-Madrigal, Executive Director of LCCR. “We are gratified to honor Andrew’s important pro bono work and deeply appreciate his commitment to justice.”
McArdell works with clients primarily in the areas of product liability, land use, commercial, and intellectual property litigation. He represents a leading manufacturer of artificial joints in product liability claims across the country, assisted with the defense of a major electronics manufacturer in patent infringement litigation, and he was a key member of a team that successfully moved to dismiss a complaint for lack of personal jurisdiction before the Business Litigation Session of the Superior Court. McArdell is passionate about pro bono work; in addition to his work with LCCR, he represents several young clients in proceedings before the U.S. Immigration Court.
