Leading the South Asian Bar Association of Northern California
In 2015, DWT partner Vidhya Prabhakaran continued to serve as co-president of the South Asian Bar Association of Northern California. In March, he spoke at the group’s 22nd annual gala at the San Francisco Design Center, where he said: “From fighting discrimination in our justice system, to curbing police brutality, to providing access to free legal services to low-income members of our community, there is still much work to be done.”

Fostering Connections Among LGBT Asian American and South Asian Lawyers
In October 2015, DWT’s San Francisco office was pleased to host a networking reception for LGBT Asian American and South Asian Lawyers. About 40 attendees, including DWT associate and host Sanjay Nangia, came to the gathering, which was one of three held in a single week across the country that were jointly sponsored by law firms and LGBT and Asian Pacific American lawyer associations.

The events drew partners and associates at corporate firms, government attorneys, solo practitioners, small firms, and public-interest lawyers to discuss the need for diversity and the importance of giving back. The receptions also raised money for the National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance’s legal referral program for LGBT Asian American and Pacific Islander undocumented immigrants, young people, and organizations.
