BASF’s Sponsor Firm Program Thriving As Seven New Firms Added


2013 has been an exceptional year for BASF’s Sponsor Firm program with the addition of seven new firms. A BASF Sponsor Firm is a firm with ten or more attorneys in its office that pays for 100% of its attorneys to be BASF members. Sponsor firms receive exclusive benefits including the ability to host diversity receptions and in-house counsel mixers; Managing Partner dinner invitations; the ability to submit content to iCounsel (an enewsletter sent to 2,000 in-house counsel); and increased media visibility in all of our publications.
