Tyler Carpenter and Addison Dufour recipients of the October Pro Bono Monthly Award
MVA Corporate Associates Tyler Carpenter and Addison Dufour were recipients of the October Pro Bono Monthly Award by the MVA Public Service Committee for their contributions within the community and their outstanding commitment to service. MVA recently launched its newest pro bono project called the Charlotte Legal Initiative to Mobilize Businesses (CLIMB) which offers transactional legal services to entrepreneurs and small businesses in historically under-resourced communities of Charlotte, especially BIPOC, female, LGBTQ+, veteran, and disabled entrepreneurs. In addition to providing direct legal services, CLIMB offers legal education seminars to its community referral partners that includes the Boost Pad small business incubator.
Both Tyler and Addison have been helpful in presenting to the Boost Pad cohort over the past several months. These sessions cover a broad range of legal topics to entrepreneurs including entity formation, employment law, and other small business best practices. Tyler and Addison have done a wonderful job in providing substantive content to the attendees and serving as great representatives of both the firm and CLIMB.
