Partner Vincent Doyle was named to the blue-ribbon COVID-19 Recovery Task Force created by the State Bar Association in partnership with the state court system. At the urging of New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, the Task Force will oversee the pro bono network of lawyers who will be assisting New Yorkers suffering from the pandemic. The Task Force includes lawyers, law professors, former judges and others in leadership positions in New York’s legal community.
Former New York Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman, coordinator of the network, said: “This esteemed panel brings a depth of experience and perspectives to the task we have at hand – making sure that those who need a lawyer get help as quickly as humanly possible.”
Doyle is a former President of the New York State Bar Association, the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary state bar association, and currently is President of Neighborhood Legal Services, which provides free legal services to people suffering from poverty and people with disabilities. At Connors LLP, Doyle’s practice focuses on commercial litigation and representation of professionals.
