On Saturday, June 23, 2018, Glaser Weil LLP was bestowed a key by AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles in honor of its extensive and impactful pro bono work for this leading, world-class urban marine research and innovation center. Ceremoniously presented to Peter Weil, Glaser Weil’s Managing Partner, by Jenny Cornuelle Krusoe, AltaSea’s Executive Director, the key represents ‘a door to the future’ on the project that AltaSea will name for the Firm. This tribute ensures that Glaser Weil’s work will be commemorated for the life of the project. The Firm has dedicated a significant amount of pro bono time and resources to AltaSea as part of its continued commitment to serving the communities in which it practices and lives.
Glaser Weil’s relationship with AltaSea began in 2016 when they retained the Firm to represent them in front of the City of Los Angeles and the various public agencies throughout every level of government. Since that time, Glaser Weil attorneys have been instrumental in negotiating AltaSea’s new lease with the Port of Los Angeles, have worked diligently to help implement the terms and conditions from a Federal Grant Award, and serve as day-to-day counsel to AltaSea’s Board and staff on a variety of issues. Glaser Weil also acts as AltaSea’s lead lobbyist with the City.
AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles accelerates scientific collaboration, facilitates job creation and inspires the next generation for a more sustainable ocean. Built on a historic pier with access to the deep ocean, AltaSea’s 35-acre campus brings people together to expand science-based understanding of the ocean; incubate and sustain ocean-related business; and pioneer new ocean-related education programs.
