Fears Nachawati trial lawyer and senior counsel Gale Pearson has been appointed to serve as secretary at the Pound Civil Justice Institute, a national legal think tank devoted to providing support for the U.S. civil justice system, as well as state and federal appellate courts.
A veteran trial attorney of more than 25 years, Ms. Pearson is a trailblazer in fighting on behalf of communities whose drinking water has been contaminated by per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), also known as “forever chemicals.”
“I’m proud to be involved in the Pound Institute and the vital work this organization is doing to strengthen our courts,” Ms. Pearson said. “More than ever, it’s important that our judges have the necessary tools and support to succeed.”
The Pound Civil Justice Institute provides an unbiased forum for leading scholarship addressing complicated and challenging issues facing the judiciary. These include access to justice, open courts and areas where contemporary issues like race, education, women’s rights and the #MeToo movement intersect with the law.
“We built Fears Nachawati to provide a voice for individuals and a level playing field against powerful corporate interests. A healthy and unbiased civil justice system is critical to achieving that goal,” said firm co-founder Majed Nachawati. “The Pound Institute provides important resources to ensure that our courts are equipped to respond to the complexities of today’s rapidly evolving business and legal landscape.”
“Our firm is committed to taking leadership roles in the communities we serve and in professional legal organizations like the Pound Institute,” said firm co-founder Bryan Fears. “Our judicial system is the envy of the world, and we are proud to devote our time and expertise to supporting our courts.”
